Upon arrival we found the RED COW was an active neighborhood bar, with the rooms located above, one look at the location, the room and the security, we paid for one night, cancelled the balance and went on to another hotel. Since the bar person was also the hotel person, there was no one to help with luggage. The rooms... More

My wife and stayed at the Red Cow last weekend and we were due to stay for two nights, but after suffering the noise from the pub until 1.30 in the morning we checked out on Monday morning. I spoke to the owner who was complacent at best and his comment was " Well it's a pub " I subsequently... More

lovely friendly staff, beautiful room, however it is a working pub & does play loud music & when the patrons are having a sing & dance you can both hear & fell the vibrations, but like I said it is a pub & not a hotel so you have to expect it when you stay in a place like this

I bought my girlfriend here or should I say, she bought me here. It was pleasantly empty and I realised why. We ordered a roast beef Sunday lunch which came with two very thin slices of beef which was very fatty and three small potatoes. I've been extremely disappointed with the Sunday roasts in other pubs too and The Red... More

Chose this accommodation for its location and price. Walking distance from Richmond train station. Real character of a pub, rooms are cosy and comfortable. Bathroom is spacious with a lovely hot shower. Staff are all very friendly, polite and efficient. Good value for money, we would book again for next year but they are already booked up !!!

We came here after having a terrible experience in the nearby White Horse. We only had lunch. The staff were very friendly and the menu had lots of choice! It was affordable and the food was served a little slowly but it was fairly busy and the member of staff apologised but it was fine. It was delicious and the... More

Very affordable accommodation at the outskirts of London. We rented two rooms for a family of 5 and used the place just to sleep after venturing out into Central London and the Thames area. The staff are very friendly and helpful, e.g. carrying our luggage up the stairs to our rooms. The rooms are dated with big stains on the... More

I took my parents here for lunch as I boycott the alberts deli (see separate review) and we didn't all fancy the white horse menu. We all enjoyed our lunch here, and the service was very good. It's more burger and chips than gastro, but still good quality.
