Pub in Richmond, Kew & Hampton Court

This riverside pub trumpets a lineage dating back to Tudor days, although the building you drink in today is 18th century. Henry VIII is said to have dallied with wife-to-be number five, Catherine Howard, at the tavern’s older incarnation; other regulars included smugglers and highwaymen, including Dick Turpin.

The pub provides an excellent conclusion to visits to Syon House nearby.
