Where do TW1 locals go?

Pasta Di Piazza

Delightful food and ambience and only a 7 minute walk from Twickenham Station!

Alexander Pope

A great pub for a big get-together near the River Thames.

The Aleksander

Under new management, this pub is a great stop off when walking between Twickenham and Richmond!

Harris + Hoole

There are some delicious coffees and cakes on offer in this popular, relaxing café.

York House Gardens

A beautiful garden on the banks of Thames in Twickenham with sculptures made from renowned Italian white Carrara marble.

Ruben's Bakehouse

Enjoy artisan breads and amazing pizzas in this fantastic local bakery.

Ches's Trattoria

During the day this place functions as a greasy spoon café usually full of builders, but in the evening it turns into an amazing, authentic, family run Italian restaurant. The food is to die for and because they don't have an alcohol licence, its BYOB!

The Crown

Gorgeous gastro pub near Marble Hill Park - great for Sunday roasts but book ahead!

The Cabbage Patch

Taking its name from nearby Twickenham Stadium's nickname, The Cabbage Patch deserves the Triple Crown honour as THE rugby pub in London, if not the UK!

St Margarets

Close to St Margarets Station, this place is a cosy 'old man' style pub with a welcoming atmosphere.

The Turk's Head

Great pub, great food and a great atmosphere! They always play rugby on the TVs too.

North Stables Café

A quirky place for a coffee and cake, while walking along Twickenham's Riverside.

The Gurkha's Inn

Consistently rated on Trip Advisor as one of the best restaurants in Twickenham and always full.

St Margarets Fair

Held once a year, it's a great day out for all the family - live bands, face painting and traditional games.

Marble Hill House

This beautiful 18th century Georgian house is set in stunning parkland close to the Thames. You can go on a guided tour of the house for a fee or just enjoy the park for free.

Adam

"I love The Crown pub next to Marble Hill Park for a Sunday Roast."

April 2015

JM

"It may be small but St Margarets rocks. Great cafes and independent shops - and within walking distance of Richmond."

February 2015

Steve

"St Margarets has a pretty village feel within walking distance of Richmond and the River Thames. There is a strong community with street parties and fairs and lots of great cafes and restaurants. Marble Hill Park is a beautiful park right on the banks of the river Thames and next to the foot ferry which can take you over to Ham House and Petersham."
