Last year we including in the Festival Programme a pull-out pub guide for the Twickenham area. Below is a printable version of the map and pub descriptions. NB. this is now out of date as there have been a number of pub changes since its production.
* NB. Some pubs have changed since publication.
The guide lists all pubs in the TW1 and TW2 postal areas which include Twickenham, Whitton and St Margarets. Not all pubs listed will serve real ale and many that do, serve it in less than ideal condition. Please note that pubs, beers and management will always be subject to change and although the guide has been compiled with our best endeavours, we accept no responsibility for any inaccuracies that may be found. Changes to pubs are regularly reported in the London Drinker (select Captital Pub Check) which is available bi-monthly from many pubs in the area.
