This has been on my list of places to try for some time, and I must say it was well worth the wait. The place itself is quite compact but comfortable inside, with rustic dining tables and chairs reflecting the spirit of the old pub (I've fond memories of drinking here some years ago). The menu is varied, with a... More

We were recommended to come here - it was full, so it clearly suits some people. Dining out is partly about food, but also about the experience. The food encompasses a variety of less common dishes, successfully prepared, but 'nouvelle cuisine' in quantity and ''pretty-pretty' in presentation. Serving on slate, and bread boards is distinctly 1990's. Value for money in... More

I have dined at the Richmond Arms several times since it reopened as an upmarket bistro pub. In fact it is really a restaurant with a bar. The food is superb - all locally sourced and very simply prepared. Big steaks, local game, very fresh fish, etc. If they do specialise in anything it is very slow roast dishes -... More

We took the family there, aged 10 to 72, and everyone loved it. The menu is unusual, and the food quality outstanding. The kids loved the ice creams, and also the steaks ! The Londoners were suitably impressed. Very good service, relaxed friendly atmosphere. We are lucky to live a fairly short walk away, and it's a great place to... More

This place is really very good. The food particularly so with a great range of options including vegetarian. Reasonably priced food and drink. The atmosphere is pleasant too. If you want refined pub food in a nice setting this is one to hunt out.

Good weather helps, of course, so it was a bonus to be able to sit in warm sunshine outside The Richmond Arms on a great October Sunday with a perfectly chilled Loire Sauvignon Blanc and time to peruse the rather quirky lunch menu. Lots on offer made for difficult choices, but once settled we were ushered inside to our window... More

Last Saturday was our first wedding anniversary and I couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our special day. The place was really buzzing when we arrived. We were a little early and so sat at the bar to enjoy our aperitifs which were an excellent start to a brilliant evening. We were offered a number of different gins... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be taken out for dinner on Saturday, 11th October, to The Richmond Arms. The food was fantastic, the staff were great and their wine selection is wonderful. This is a place to come with friends for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. They also do a very good Sunday lunch. We'll be back, bloody... More

Came in for a late Sunday lunch today, brilliant meal. I had the Keralan style Guinea Fowl pie to start, slow cooked shoulder of goat for main and a selection of the ice creams for dessert. All of the courses were fantastic. Fresh, full of flavour and a decent size portion. The roasted vegetables were great with the goat, which... More
