The Mute Swan

Hampton Court


The Mute Swan can be found right opposite the gates of Hampton Court Palace, 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, focussed on the bar and so this area is suitable for adults only, while upstairs has a more food-led restaurant ambience where children are welcome. 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.

We hope you can join us,
Alessio and the Mute Swan team.
