Brunning & Price (Restaurant Group)

About the Pub

After previous incarnations the premises has now reverted back to its original 1870s name 'Steam Packet'. It reopened in July 2020 as part of the Brunning & Price restaurant group. The bar features a unique brass hand rail with mermaids fixings. There is a more private and cosy area towards the back of the pub, with an additional upstairs dining/drinking area and balcony over-looking the river. Directly opposite the pub and situated by the river wall are some tables and seats. The Thames walk foot path is close by and is a short walk from Kew Bridge Station and bus stops. NB. Due to the physical limitations of the building prams are not allowed inside at any time. Also, Strand on the Green is within a ULEZ.

Historic Interest

Was licensed by 1870 and listed “Steam Packet Hotel, At River Side” in the 1881 census. The pub's name derived from the steam launches which once docked at Kew Pier as part of the regular steam packet service up the river, and as such is part of the history of the area. A flight of stone steps opposite, Steam Packet steps, still in good condition for use, descends from the road level to the river for loading and unloading the boats.
