This is a lovely, chill pub with great views of the river. There's a patio area right outside the door as well as across the narrow street (although that floods when the tide comes in, as I saw yesterday!) I wish I had eaten here as well- the corn tacos with spiced aubergine filling sound divine. Next time.

I would choose this place over The Barmy Arms any day- better views, more intimate.more

One of the best pubs in Twickenham. We came here with some friends after an evening stroll by the river. Ordered a few pints and sat outside on the terrace enjoying the evening. Cozy inside, great outside seating, and friendly service. Next time I'm in the area, I'll certainly be coming back to The White Swan.more

Walking along the river from St Margarets to Twickenham we were glad to stumble upon this watering hole - it was a beautiful day and a refreshing beverage by the river was just what we needed!

The layout of the main bar upstairs is quite tight but it did have a small patio area with a few tables outside, so we could overlook the setting below - and what a setting! Great views over the river,...more

The White Swan is one of the most charming pubs I've come across in a long time. A quirky upstairs-based layout gives is a great view out over the Thames. The patio seating area is next to a little beach-y spot at low tide and can become a little island it high tide! The pub is kind enough to list the daily tide tables on a sign and has warnings posted so you don't get caught out.

This is a lovely pub in a great location right on the river; a real favourite among locals, with a bustling, friendly crowd.

It has expanded its outdoor seating area across the road with a raised area of decking sitting on the edge of the water, which also has heaters for those chillier evenings. Watch out though, at high tide, you might find yourself marooned!more
