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.

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?

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!

Lovely meal with attentive, friendly service. Just had to wait a little too long for dessert to arrive and then again for the bill. When the waitress poured the wine she told us that she had filled the glass to the limit for our driver, which we all thought very good!

The White Swan has stood out as a pleasant and wonderful public house for as long as I can remember. It is a small and intimate venue with friendly and welcoming staff. Excellent food and service. It is also one of the few venues to regularly have Cask Otter bitter which is an excellent light beer to accompany any meal.
