In one of the most idyllic settings. This 17th Century building sits above a shallow slope to the Thames and enjoys both a sunny veranda balcony and a pretty paved garden right on the riverside.
Apart from one or two extensions over the years the pub building remains relatively untouched, giving it a traditional pub feel.
Festooned with flowers and plants outside in summer and warmed with log fires in the winter it’s been a very special local in Twickenham for many years.

    Good menu - mackerel pate was very fresh and summery, Moroccan chicken, excellent. A lovely bottle of Picpoul. Staff were very friendly and efficient. As it was a glorious day, we would have sat outside in the sunshine - but people still smoke in that area, so it's a bit unpleasant if you're eating.

    The White Swan is a typically quintessential old Englush rustic pub with wooden beams and floorboards and has lovely views of the river.It has a very warm welcoming feeling and following my request at the time of booking, we were delighted to be seated at the wonderful river view seating area. The staff were all extremely friendly and made our time there very relaxing and were attentive to all our needs. The food was all excellent with fantastic home made style chips accompanying most meals, superb food portions and everything cooked to perfection. We'd highly recommend a visit!

    We're locals but this time we took visitors from out of town who LOVED our afternoon at The White Swan! We were nearly 40 minutes late as a spectacularly high tide had us completely stranded the other side of the river but the staff were so accommodating and patient and kept our table despite it being a Saturday afternoon. And what a table - a cosy banquette right in the front window overlooking the river. Also very dog friendly which was lovely. Food and service were excellent: friendly and attentive. Also great music that made it all feel so relaxed. Our east enders were blown away by what a treasure this pub is - perfect way to spend a sunny spring afternoon! Drinks perhaps slightly expensive but with a location like that it's worth it!

    The White Swan on the banks of the mighty Thames is all thats required if you are looking for a cosy winter pub.Kind and welcoming staff,good food,great atmosphere and a roaring fire.We had a great pub lunch with a bottle of Malbec, on Saturday. Our dog Ricky the Jack Russell was look after like a little prince.We then headed to the park which is only a stones throw away for a brisk walk.

    Food was great, plenty of vegan options. Service was friendly and attentive. We were half an hour early but they happily accommodated us despite it being so busy for Christmas. The only negative point was the toilets. The ladies was okay, but my husband remarked that the hand drier in the gents was covered in mould.

    A beautiful Location and authentic ambiance and decor. The house Rose was delectable And well Chosen. The beers too. Such a shame About the food. We had fish and chips with mushy peas. The fish was hard to Find among the batter which was tasteless And VERY oily. The chips were very dry and Lacking. It felt as though they had been sitting around in a hot oven for a while. The mushy peas were cold. There was a good Portion of tartare sauce. Lemon cheesecake was good. Staff were welcoming and helpful.
