Graham Coombs left this review about The White Swan (JD Wetherspoon)

Large modern Spoons with an almost seaside feel to it. The bright interior features a wavy design, repeated throughout, and a wavy balcony holding an upstairs area. For some reason they had 4 Nethergate ales on at time of visit, plus a couple of Sambrook's and the usuals. Quite pleasant on the whole, although by the time my friends appeared two of the beers had died and various of the food was off, which raises a query on the management and loses a mark.

A spoons set below a 70's office block,there is a small outside patio before entering the body of the pub.Spacious at the front,there is a curved balcony to the upstairs section and the bar also mirrors this curved design.The furniture is identikit 'spoons,while the rear of the building is a quieter section below a lowish ceiling.
Two ranks of five handpumps with the trio of doom GK IPA (doubled up),Abbott and Doom Bar leaving on my trip guests Truman Runner,Adnams Broadside,Sambrooks Junction,Westerham Olicana Single Hop (good nick) while Westerham Viceroy IPA was still clipped but I was informed had run out.Not too bad a range ,and not too bad an interior so worth popping in given that real ale option will be limited as you walk south on Upper Street.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The White Swan (JD Wetherspoon)

The interior is looking very tired and dated at present and should be considered for a major refurb, due to its locality. The three coloured plastic patterned bar and wall areas, was in its day quite fashionable, but now looks awful and past its sell by, as a lot of it was broken or curling up. The pub on our Monday afternoon visit had the usual Monday club suspects roaming around with lagers and cheap wine. Nothing over exciting on the ale front, so went for Trumans Lazarus, which looked ok, but was giving me a sore throat drinking it. So didn't even finish it and headed to the Brewhouse and Kitchen across the way.
