Tucked away in a pretty Covent Garden side street just off St Martins Lane and not far from the Piazza, the White Swan was an O’Neill’s until May 2012 when it was reconfigured into a decidedly more beer-friendly Nicholson’s. Fuller’s London Pride, St Austell Nicholson’s Pale Ale and Thornbridge Jaipur are regularly sold; guests from the Nicholson’s list sometimes come from London brewers like Ha’penny and also from suppliers like Acorn, Great Heck or Leeds. The pub is relatively small for a Nicholson’s, furnished traditionally in dark wood with a screened off rear section and an upstairs restaurant, in a Grade II listed building that once belonged to Hoare’s Red Lion brewery in Smithfield. Staff are notably friendly.
