THE HOTEL: THE ORANGE TREE
Just down the road in vibrant Richmond, you’ll find the Orange Tree. Boasting a selection
of lovingly designed boutique rooms, it’s the perfect sanctuary after a tough day’s viewing.
Soak away that adrenaline in a roll top bath, conveniently situated at the end of your bed. The
long-established pub downstairs serves a classic British menu and enviable selection of cask ales.
THE BRUNCH SPOT: NO1 DUKE STREET
Watching all that activity is enough to make anyone hungry, so fuel up pre-match at No. 1 Duke Street. Just a short
stroll from the Orange Tree, this brunch spot exudes a sense of calm to savour before the Twickenham tumult.
Set yourself down in a bespoke chair and start the day right with a house breakfast, sourdough bruschetta
or perhaps a coconut pancake stack. Conversion successful.
THE BEST DRINKS IN TOWN: THE WHITE SWAN
Pre and post-match beers for such an esteemed event need a venue of equal esteem. Nestled on the bank
of the Thames, you’ll find The White Swan. Independently owned, it’s been serving the good people of
Twickenham since the 17th century. Indulge in a local tipple or three, including the famed ‘Naked Ladies’ brew.
Find yourself a secluded corner or catch some early rays in the riverside garden.
It all started with a rugby back in 1993. Whilst skin tight t-shirts and tiny shorts might reign on the pitch,
we spectators can afford to be a little more relaxed. Layer up supersoft pieces with a focus on comfort.
