The best pubs in Twickenham

With the holiday season here, and temperatures plummeting, a cosy pub is the perfect place to meet with friends and loved ones.

Twickenham has a wealth of options, so here is a list of some of the most charming and characterful pubs in the area.

The Sussex Arms

Found just beyond Twickenham Green on Staines Road, The Sussex Arms boasts an open fire, traditional seating and an overwhelming number of taps, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The Soundwave IPA is particularly refreshing.

The large garden at the rear has heating, and a play area for children, making it a great pub for young families.

They offer a good, no-nonsense menu, with weekday specials on burgers, steaks and wine.

The Royal Oak

Situated on Richmond Road, The Royal Oak has a welcoming interior, with a traditional bar and good sports coverage.

The menu is well received, with good customer reviews, and they currently offer a festive two-hour bottomless brunch, starting at £36 per person (booking required).

Remember to bring change for the pool table.

The White Swan

With a wonderful setting on the Thames, The White Swan offers nicely presented dishes, teamed with white, red and rose wines, and a decent draught selection.

Outside seating consists of a stylish veranda and a covered patio, great spaces for socialising by the river, but during colder spells there is ample seating indoors.

The Barmy Arms

Now offering their festive menu, The Barmy Arms is another Thames-side option, found on the Embankment.

They’ve really gone to town with the yuletide decorations, resulting in a cosy and characterful feel.  

The Cabbage Patch

A stone’s throw from the station, The Cabbage Patch has a sociable layout and is very popular with rugby fans, the walls lined with rugby memorabilia.

Proximity to the stadium ensures it’s bustling on match days, but when quieter it’s still a great place to socialise, showing Sky and TNT Sports, and often offering live music.  

The Fox

Church street is one of Twickenham’s most attractive settings.

Coffee shops are plentiful, but if you require something a little stronger, why not visit The Fox?

They have great craft beers and a substantial menu.

The Fox has a spacious seating to the side and rear, with a more intimate bar area up front.
