Swan, Ships Tavern Passage, Gracechurch Street, City of London EC3

All Hallows Lombard Street pub history index

Existed from at least 1861. The Swan is not strictly in All Hallows. There is an entry in the 1901 census, which is then crossed out, and in fact is listed under St Margaret Pattens & St Dunstan in the East! It can be listed here for brevity. The pub was rebuilt in its present form in 1898.***

The 1901 census lists the address as the Swan. 47 Eastcheap, but I believe this is correct.
