Staff were great, atmosphere was pleasant and the service was efficient. The food was delicious! We got the veggie roast and it exceeded expectations. The roast potatoes ARE veggie as they’re not unecessarily made with goose fat (bruh). Some of the Sunday options didn’t come...More

The Mute Swan, opposite the gates of Hampton Court Palace, is our 'English-dining-pub-meets-wine-bar'. Arranged over two floors, downstairs 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.\\n\\nOutside we have a good-sized terrace for al frescodrinking and dining, which will be a real draw on sunny days and a fine place for a spot of lunch with friends and family.
