In addition to the predictably rugby-themed bars and pubs, of which there are several, Twickenham is not short on international eateries. In a radius of only a few blocks and not far from Twickenham Stadium, you will find Chinese, Bangladeshi, Neapolitan, French, Indian and Nepalese restaurants, many highly rated.
