The river’s lovely when the sun comes out, but it also means that every pub on the river gets rammed. The Swan is the smart option here, where you can get a cold pint without having to wait ages to get served. It’s very nice inside by pub standards, so you can feel smug while you sip your Guinness, and there’s also a decent outdoor seating area in case you fancy perching outside. There’s also a restaurant with very nice food (not to mention a view), but stick with a scotch egg and a pint of prawns if you don’t want a full meal.
