The station was opened on 20 November 1939 on a new section of deep-level tunnel constructed between Baker Street and Finchley Road stations when the Metropolitan line's services on its Stanmore branch were transferred to the Bakerloo line. It is named after a nearby pub built in 1803–4, originally called The Swiss Tavern and later renamed Swiss Cottage.

The new station initially operated as part of a combined station with the Metropolitan line's adjacent sub-surface Swiss Cottage station (platforms 1 and 2 were Metropolitan line and 3 and 4 were Bakerloo line), but the Metropolitan line station was closed on 17 August 1940. The Bakerloo line station was subsequently transferred along with the rest of the Stanmore branch to the Jubilee line when it opened on 1 May 1979.


London Buses routes 13, 31, 46, 82, 113, 187, 268, 603 and C11 and night routes N13, N28, N31 and N113 serve the station.
