Visited today with sister in law and brother in law. Had reserved table which was ready and waiting for us. It was a small table especially when we had water wine and beer, then the food orders! I cannot comment on the others meals but mine was not that good it was a disappointment - burger tasteless, extra cheddar almost... More

Visited for lunch and sat in the garden terrace overlooking the river, drank a pint of beer and bathed in sunshine. All was well until the food arrived - my burger was dry, the bun tasted as if it had been in the freezer for days, and the chips were lifeless. Overpriced and disappointing.

The bride and groom, both of 70 yrs together with 26 family members, descended on the White Horse to celebrate their marriage. The publican provided a good buffet menu with all the guest aptly fed and watered. With plentiful ales and a good choice of food. The White Swan enjoys a beautiful setting aside the Thames and features a wonderful... More

Met friends there for lunch on Sunday 12/03/2017. I had roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. The beef was very tough, Yorkshire was dry, not pleasant at all. My two friends had Scampi and chips which they also felt was dry and chips were not good! Another friend had chicken roast and a leg attached to thigh which was dry and... More

Paid the pub a visit prior to the England v Scotland rugby game. We got there not long after it opened and enjoyed several drinks before heading off for lunch. A lovely venue, right on the river, with a bar with a balcony, and an outside bar right on the river's edge. Nice beer, good staff and no delays

Love this pub, always go for a drink when in twickenham. Barbie looks good on rugby days. Husband likes the selection of beers, and says it one of his favourite pubs in Britain.

Try and enter a pub on match day down the main high street of Twickenham and it is a total bun fight. This is a cultured environment that attracts civilized customers (as all rugby fans are!) but with a little decorum. The setting is excellent with a the beer garden serving excellent ale and food and the road between the... More

The Daily Telegraph says the White Swan is "One of the best beer gardens in London. A hidden gem." It's not hidden if you're strolling from Richmond to Twickenham; in fact the White Swan is so pretty it demands that you stop there. On a hot afternoon it is exactly the right place for a cold cider, and perhaps a... More

This pub is spot on for a beer or too before a game at Twickers. It's right on the river and not overly crowded like most of them near the station. Bar staff very efficient and a nice selection of Ales: Doom Bar, St Austell and Cumberland. They also do burgers and pork baps on the grill outside. Give it... More
