It was a busy, buzzing evening when we visited. The staff were very knowledgeable and attentive and obviously working very hard. We would probably be discribed as fussy foodies but there was nothing we could fault.

However, the service and time it took to get food to the table for four people was poor. There was no... More

The menus had something for everybody on it, for starters we had the chorizo scotch egg and the seared yellow fin tuna. Mains were the sticky slow cooked beef... More

I love eating at The Richmond Arms, I feel very lucky to have got a table on Valentine's night. I booked a table for two a few weeks ago then mentioned to some friends at the last minute we were going and they wanted to join us, Anna was a superstar and one way or another managed to sort us...
