Bookings for up to 6 people from a single household and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier
We are currently only able to accept tables for up to 6 people. Inside, these 6 people (including adults and children) must be from a single household, whereas outdoors they can be from multiple households. We’ll also need to ensure you’re fed and watered by 10pm and customers are required to wear masks indoors when not seated at their tables.
With ‘the bell’ being rung an hour earlier, if you fancy a tipple to take home, we have some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home. We also have our ‘Click and Collect’ menu up and running, so you can enjoy some of your favourites from the comfort of your home – head to our Click and Collect page to whet your appetite and place your order.
Please note, the above changes apply here as we are in a tier 2 area. However, if you live in a tier 3 area, please follow the rules that apply to that tier.
Thank you for your support and for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.
The Mute Swan can be found right opposite the gates of Hampton Court Palace, in a wonderfully characterful pub, the building which itself dates back hundreds of years.
You will find a curved bar right at the heart of the pub, with a decent selection of cask ales, a back shelf crammed with malts and a collection of gins, with a wine list of some 50 absolute belters. Hand on heart, we put a lot of research into that one, and have left no wine stone unturned...
Downstairs at the Mute Swan 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.
Outside, right opposite the gates to Hampton Court Palace, we have a terrace for al fresco drinking and dining, which is a draw on sunny days and a fine place for a spot of lunch or just some people watching over coffee.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
