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.
