Alexander Pope Hotel

Just like the coaching inns of old, we provide a relaxed home-from-home for locals and visitors alike. Above all, we offer friendly, personal and unpretentious service, whether you're just in for a quiet pint, planning an intimate dinner, a stop-over for a business trip or staying for a leisurely weekend. Within walking distance of Twickenham Stadium, on the banks of the Thames in Strawberry Hill, The Alexander Pope Hotel is the perfect place to eat, drink and stay - from meeting friends after work, to a long, lazy Sunday lunch or a relaxing comfortable stay in our 32 bedroom hotel.

The large and impressive modern hotel that was the 'Pope's Grotto' takes its name from the poet Alexander Pope (1688-1744), who had a house on the banks of the Thames near the site of the pub. He delighted in gardening and building his famous grotto. The gardens contained some of the earliest and finest cedar trees from Lebanon and a Spanish willow, cuttings from which were sent to the Empress of Russia in 1789.
