The Mute Swan, opposite the gates of Hampton Court Palace, is our 'English-dining-pub-meets-wine-bar'. Arranged over two floors, downstairs is more pubby\\/wine bar in style, and focussed on the bar, while upstairs has a more food-led restaurant ambience - but the menu is available throughout so people can choose which style suits them best.\\n\\nOutside we have a good-sized terrace for al frescodrinking and dining, which will be a real draw on sunny days and a fine place for a spot of lunch with friends and family.
