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.
A great Sunday Roast thanks. Not been to visit for a while--but will be back as soon as can. A lovely little pub and good food and atmosphere.
Very nice venue for a mid week lunch.
Just have a look at the Sea Bass main meal served on Sunday 7th October. Then compare it with roast beef meal. You will quickly come to the view that the Sea Bass meal was about at leat 50% smaller than the roast beef meal. Why? Just look at the really small pice of Sea Bass on the plate. It was half of a full size but very small Sea Bass. I mentioned this to the waitress but she was not interested in commenting, nor passing on the message to the manager. What does this say about customer service, let alone about the quality of food.
Great pub atmosphere in a lovely location near the river.
Main courses of chicken and venison were excellent, but the sticky toffee pudding wasa disappointment. It was neither sticky nor a pudding. Instead, it was a light cake with a small amount of toffee sauce. Proper Job beer was excellent.
Great food and a lovely pub atmosphere. We love eating here and can’t wait to come back!
Very good food and service
I love it.
Great food, generous portions, friendly and efficient service, good drinks selection. Menu slightly limited but otherwise no negatives. Best pub in Richmond
Generally don't make a meal of commenting on places we eat out at, but genuinely the entire evening from start to finish was great. Service was exceptional (Jade and Italian chap), the food was great, the vibe was great. It's our pub of choice from now on.
As always, a great place to have lunch with friends.
Very happy to have found you! Fab food, had to chase some drinks orders but otherwise great service.
All round fabulous bar.
Beautiful setting and vibrant hanging baskets welcome you. Universally warm and helpful staff. A very pleasant atmosphere - not too noisy but a happy burble of conversation and laughter. The duck and lamb were delicious as was the cheese and crumble. Thoroughly recommended.
Very good service and amazing food.
I love The White Swan
All great. My favourite pub in Richmond!
Beautiful sunny day complemented by fantastic service and delicious food.
Always a great place to visit for lunch in Richmond. Staff are always friendly, and the food is excellent.
First time I've been for about three years. Excellent service and food (2 x beef pie, 1 x sausages, 2 x crumble and ice cream) and drink (Otter), nice setting in the conservatory. A very enjoyable meal and will be back when there's an opportunity.
Excellent food and a wine list that contained some lovely continental wines and showcased the best of England’s growing wine offering.
The White Swan is my favourite pub in Richmond. The service is always friendly and efficient and the food very good and unusually generous (particularly compared to chain owned pubs) Excellent value for money. Though quite small the garden is a great place to dine during Summer. What more do you want from a pub?
We had a lovely experience dining at this old pub. The staff were very helpful and the roasts lovely
Despite being a busy little pub the fantastic staff create a lovely relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting It is very popular so all credit to the staff that they were still so attentive and friendly Good food and good selection of beers and wine To be the absolute perfect roast for me, I could have done with a little less Yorkshire pud and at least one more roast potato but that's a tiny personal gripe in an otherwise great roast. Would highly recommend it!
