Came with the family for the second time, never been disappointed. Good sized portions and tasty food. The location is really nice and enjoyable esp on a sunny day

Its a lovely spot, next to the river. It can get really really busy though. I haven't eaten here but I hear its good. The drinks selection is great and the service friendly. Game days are crazy busy

The first time we've visited this pub. Wonderful lunch in the sunshine. Loved the Vegetable Chilli with butternut squash. Best one I've ever had. Number 1 son was very happy with his chicken burger and chips. We will come back here very soon.

The sun was finally out and we took a walk from Twickenham to Richmond along the river. We stopped here expecting not to get a table. We were lucky, as we arrived someone was leaving. The deck is a great place for a drink and something to eat when the sun is out but best to get there early. Good... 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.
