José’s first gastropub, The Swan Inn is a modern pub with boutique rooms, situated opposite a leafy green in the town Esher, Surrey.

José Pizarro The Swan Inn is the fourth restaurant in José Pizarro’s repertoire. The Surrey pub has a typical British pub feel, but in true José style serves delicious Spanish classics using the best Spanish ingredients alongside locally sourced produce.

For thirsty guests there is a wide selection of British real ales, draught beers, big gin and tonics with a wonderful collection of Spanish and European wines. During the summer weekends the barbeques are fired up in our beautiful garden terrace for a true taste of grilled tapas classics alfresco. In the winter months you can cosy up next to our log fireplace or garden fire pit.

We welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes, providing them with a bowl of water on arrival. Bring your puppies with you!

José and Karan have collaborated on a menu that marries traditional Spanish dishes and techniques with Sri Lankan spice and flavour. A playful rendition of Sri Lankan food through the Spanish lens, this menu is truly a one-night-only affair you can't miss! The dishes will be masterfully cooked by José and his team with inspiration taken from Karan's cookbook. A copy of the Hoppers Cook Book is included in the ticket price, so make sure you ask Karan to sign your copy on the night.
