The White Swan is a traditional free house right on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham. The pub dates back to the 17th century. You can see us in the Samuel Scott print, dated 1760, that hangs above the fire in the bar. The pub is made up of two rooms, a terrace-balcony and a garden right on the riverbank. Inside we have about 12 tables of various shapes and sizes, a couple of window seats and a few stools at the bar. Its a very cosy pub in winter, especially when we light the fires. In summer we open the doors to the balcony and put up sunshades in the garden. Sometimes, at high tide, the garden is IN the river but never for long. Everyone who works here knows what its like to wade through the water with a few plates or glasses in hand.
