  • Visitor Information

The White SwanEmulating its flesh and blood namesakes the White Swan sits perched on the north bank of the Thames. Built in the 17th century, it’s seen a great deal of history float past, be it on royal barges or merchants vessels. The river regularly bursts its banks at this point which is why the pub is raised up, although it’s suffered flooding on many occasions in the past. It’s got plenty of neat antique touches; pace across the bare wooden floors and tuck yourself into the shelter of the deeply recessed bay windows after you’ve purchased your refreshments at the diminutive L-shaped bar. If tummies are rumbling you can mount the stairs to the small restaurant which serves up a varied menu which changes from day to day meaning you never tire. After an exhausting wander around the leafy tracts of Richmond Park replenish yourself at this conveniently placed and consistently excellent public house.
