About White Swan

Built in 1787 the White Swan has seen many changes as a public house but has always maintained its friendly and warm atmosphere.
If you are looking for a light bite, business lunch or something more formal, the White Swan can accommodate – or just pop in for a drink and choose from an extensive list of wines, spirits, lagers and cask ales or whisky's.

Please use our online booking form - If the online reservation system is showing no availability please give us a call as we will always do everything we can to accommodate you (even though the computer says no we can sometimes say yes!).

Please note we can't always book specific tables but if there is an area you would prefer please mention it when booking and we'll try to accomodate or at least get back to you to say if we can't.

In our upstairs dining room we do not allow under 5's but elsewhere children are welcome up until 6.30. Please let us know if you require a high chair or space for a buggy when making the booking and we will try to find you a suitable table as space is very limited on some.

On Sundays we only book for our first sitting ie up to 1pm. After this time we operate a first come first seated waiting list where tables start to come free around 2pm and you're welcome to grab a drink at the bar while you wait.

We only accept bookings for dining but do have a few tables that are set aside if you just wish to have a drink (although these can't be reserved).

Unfortunately we do not reserve tables in the garden.

We go to the White Swan very often and we have never been let down by anything. Food is fantastic, service very friendly and in general a good restaurant. Try the cauliflower soup and the lamb is fantastic as well. The bangers and mash is an enormous portion. We will definitely be back.

We organised to visit with guests on a very busy Sunday (of the Rugby England v France) - it was fully booked and busy in the bar. The service was exceptional and the food (considering they were cooking for a lot of people) was fantastic. Timings were 100% spot on and everything to us as the consumers was inch-perfect. This is very well organised restaurant and pub and I am delighted to say we will be regulars with business client and with Friends. Thank you Paul Graham

This is a wonderful pub tucked away in an unlikely place. Staff are really friendly and the whole experience really sets up a nice afternoon walk to watch a game at Twickenham.

The White Swan is a great restaurant/pub. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. They just add to the overall experience. There are plenty of options on the menu to eat and drink, even for the hard to please, but we often seem to keep going back for the pork sausages served with creamy mash & onion gravy. Definitely leave room for dessert. The sticky toffee pudding and bread and butter pudding are delighful.

It was surprisingly difficult to attract the attention of a waiter. Also, no-one came to ask if we were happy with everything. We felt we were left to our own devices. Other than that, we enjoyed our lunch.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They were able to make room for us at such a late hour. The food was excellent; a wide selection made it hard to choose from. Make sure you leave room for dessert(s)! The bar at the White Swan also has a nice selection to choose from. We were greeted warmly at hte door and the service and relaxed atmosphere was enjoyed throuhgout the evening.

Treated to a wonderful lunch here as a surprise. The food was good and the wine selection excellent. That said, the best thing was the warm welcome from the efficient and friendly staff. (I have warmed to my friend even more).
