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 had a very enjoyable evening and the tennis on the TV was a bonus.

Very disappointing food and not value for money. Portion size for the fish was very small. The pork was fatty. A real shame as we have always enjoyed meals at this pub in the past.

We were a group of 7 school friends meeting for lunch. Food was top notch and service was great. Not rushed; very relaxed but attentive. Always love bringing friends to enjoy the atmosphere. Many thanks.

A real haven but 10 seconds from the Thames. A fine Sunday lunch was consumed by myself and friends. I’ll be back in 2 weeks’ time.

One of our favourite spots in Richmond. The Swan team was very welcoming and we got a table outdoors on a warm spring day. Food was good - well presented and tasty - though the salads were a little light on content for the price charged for them. A few more light or healthy options on the menu, especially this time of year, would be nice to see.

Lovely venue in a quiet part of Richmond, slightly hidden away, but very close to the Thames. The room upstairs offers privacy if your group is 20+ in numbers. Food was extremely good and well priced given the location. Been there many times and will continue to go there, particularly for larger work functions.
