Beer prices just went way up!

Stopped in for an ale with my wife, used to be 3.5-4 GBP, I was a bit shocked when they said 5.05 GBP for a pint. Lots better places to go in Richmond.

The place was awesome!! From outside it looks tiny lol but when you get inside. it is massive!! There are different areas for different moods. The garden area is huge with sofas that are very confy or picnic areas with the kids. There is a special area for parties ( we celebrated a baby shower and our table was in... More

What a friendly bunch of people! Very accommodating to our requests regarding party decorations and patient towards small children and their running around. The food was delicious and the portions generous. Desserts truly divine. Would definitely recommend.

Highly recommend this pub/restaurant. Great atmosphere, food great and lovely outside area as well as a covered bit where you have the best of both worlds. Place was packed which was a good sign too. Would love to come back :)

We enjoyed a great afternoon in the garden. The children had the freedom to play without annoying anyone. We enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch. We all enjoyed the food and service was good. Huge garden area for a London pub.

Supposedly, this restaurant is a favorite for aging rock stars who have homes near by..but we went because we wanted to try the barbecued ribs..we were pleasantly surprised at how good they were. The outside seating area is perfect on a warm night, and the interior is nice if the weather isn't! Several large groups were celebrating something or other... More

My wife and I had lunch here on Saturday 16 May and it was lovely. We sat in the beer garden and had food from the barbecue. The food was excellent, very good portion sized and not over priced. We found that staff to be very friendly and would definitely return.

The cheese straws were ridiculous, hard, inedible and didn't taste of cheese. The main courses were greasy and clearly had been warmed up. Awful, but nice staff.

This pub is in a great location with a pleasant interior and garden. It's my local but frankly I gave up eating here after two experiences years ago and nothing on Trip Advisor or that I hear from other locals has encouraged me try again more recently. For various reasons of convenience I do end up having a pint here... More

Most things about the restaurant were good. Friendly helpful staff, nice atmosphere, good looking food. However, when our party of 5 went there for Sunday lunch with one person having a severe gluten allergy, there was nothing on the menu except a sirloin steak and chips that that person could have. Seemingly all the gravies for the roasts had gravy... More
