THE telegraph

 

Welcome to The White Swan.
A proudly independent, pub tucked away by the River Thames in Twickenham.

 

A liTtle about us

The White Swan is a traditional free house right on the banks of the River Thames, Twickenham. The pub dates back to the 17th century. You can see us in a Samuel Scott print, dated 1760, that hangs above the fire in the bar. 

The pub is made up of two rooms, a terrace-balcony and a garden right on the riverbank. We have about 12 tables of various shapes and sizes inside, a couple of window seats and a few stools at the bar.

It’s a very cosy pub in winter, especially when we light the fires. In summer we open the doors to the balcony and put up the sun brollies in the garden. Sometimes, at high tide, the garden is IN the river but never for long. Everyone who works here knows what it's like to wade through the water with a few plates or glasses in hand.

We are a genuine free house and take pride in offering a great range of drinks. We stock tried and trusted brands alongside some of the newest names around. We like to support our local and local-ish breweries but Kevin – our lucky beer chooser – will go further afield for a good beer if it’s the right taste and quality. 

We have 5 hand pumps and up to 8 draught lagers and ciders. We’ve bought from about 40 breweries this year so far. We always have Doom Bar (named after the dangerous Doom Bar sandbank in north Cornwall) and one from Twickenham Fine Ales such as Naked Ladies. The other pumps change every few days or even within the day. We support the new, or sometimes reinvented, London breweries like Kew, Park (Kingston), Portobello, Truman’s, Belleville and Southwark alongside long-established brands like Fuller’s. Lagers on draught include Camden Hell’s Lager, Moretti and Kozel (from the Czech Republic). A favourite right now is Hazy Hog cider from the Hogsback Brewery in Surrey and close behind we like Curious Brew from Chapel Down in West Sussex.

It’s not all beer here though. Over the summer months we chill mini Prosecco bottles, jugs of Pimms, gallons of Aperol Spritz and bottle after bottle of Belvoir traditional pressé and ginger beer. This year we’ve tipped sangria as the drink of the summer – a new idea from our wine merchant Stan. He fills our cellars from his stocks in an old chalk mine in Berkshire and every so often comes to do a very informal wine tasting for our customers. That’s a popular day. 

 

Location

 

We're only a 10 minute walk from Twickenham station, about 20 minutes away from Twickenham Stadium on foot and there are loads of bus routes nearby. Richmond, and the tube, are a few minutes away by bus or a delightful half hour walk along the river.

If you’re making a day of it, you could visit Orleans House Art Gallery, stroll along the river to Marble Hill House or walk towards Twickenham town centre past the wonderfully larger than life Naked Ladies of York House.
