Children and minors

Whilst primarily an adult environment, supervised children and families are most welcome at lunch times and early evenings in our upstairs dining room. We're particually popular for family Sunday lunches - reservations advised. We are unable to allow children in our downstairs main bar area.

Due to the physical limitations of the building we regretfully cannot allow prams inside at any time.


Small, well behaved dogs are welcomed in our downstairs bar area (but not in the upstairs dining room).

Wheelchair access

There is level access into the pub, and we have a disabled loo - or rather, a loo for the disabled. Please let us know if you need assistance and we'll be happy to help.

Parking and public transport

Easy access by car, great public transport from Kew Bridge station and for walkers, we're the perfect place for some respite after enjoying a stroll along the famous riverside path. Just 30 minutes on the train from central London.

By car:

There is plenty of free, well-lit, on-street parking on the quiet roads around the pub.

From Monday to Friday, for 2 hours between 10am and 12noon, parking restrictions apply. On the Strand-on-the-green road outside the pub, you can pay using the 'pay by phone' app during this time. Again, this is only for 2 hours a day, the rest is free. Pay by phone parking app and location number 803059.

By train:

Kew Bridge Station is a 4 minute walk with trains to London Waterloo every 30mins. Other stops include: Chiswick; Barnes; Clapham Junction; and Vauxhall.

By Bus:

There are regular services from the No. 65, the 391 and the N65. with the stop just a 4 minute walk from the pub.

Our terrace and first floor balcony

During the long summer months, the Steam Packet comes into its own. With the windows and doors flung open, our ground floor terrace and first floor balcony can be truely appreciated in all their glory on a sunny evening watching the sun dip down over the Thames.

The perfect spot to enjoy a few sundowners with friends or a spot of al fresco dining with a view to die for.

Stag parties and Hen do's

I'm afraid we don't really do Stag parties or Hen parties.


Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in the bar area.


We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.

Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.

We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.

Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
