I recently discovered that I’ve been working in Holborn for four years but not discovered The White Swan, where I went for a lunch just a few days ago.
I’ve found some great eateries in the area, but always struggle to find a reasonably priced high-end pub lunch that is reliable. Me and some colleagues went there for a quick bite between meetings and I had a fantastic rib-eye steak with chips, which was one of the best I’ve had. Even better, the price for four people was a snip at around £60 with service.
The service was worth paying for as well; the host was assertive and polite and seemed to have everything under control. Once we were done (and not before) he was very friendly and quick to provide the bill so we could get on.
There’s also a restaurant upstairs that I plan to try; but as far as quick quality pub lunches in Holborn go, this is my new favourite.
