Very atmospheric Richmond pub with terrific array of Rugby memorabilia - like a real pub should be - however it's beginning to show its age which is detracting from how good it should and could be. Just needs a bit of TLC and a small...investment to bring it back to its best - hopefully they will pick up the paceMore

We arrived before the rush after Big Game 12 on 28 December and the pub was half full. Two teenagers in the group (both over 5' 10") needed to use the loo and their path was immediately blocked by a most unwelcoming and unpleasant woman...who spat out that children were not allowed in the pub. Charming! Even less charming when it was explained that the boys were desperate. People, staff, employees there .... just leave the hospitality business if that is how you welcome customers.More

We love our two children very much thank you. As for Saturday the 28th as with every match at Twickenham over 55,000 attendees we are not permitted to have under 18's on our premises after 5pm this also applies to teenagers who maybe 12ft tall....More

Been coming this pub for many, many years for refreshment before and after games, it's one of the best. Saturday had after match drink, conversation with Arsenal, Wasp supporter supporting his mates side Harlequins. I was with my better half supporting Tigers, we don't get...many excuses to visit Twickenham nowadays. On leaving she who must be obeyed visited the convienences, on entering the train station there was the Gunner with my wife's purse in hand, what a good honest bloke, didn't get his name, so can only say thank you once more through this review.More

I have visited this pub on a couple of occasions with a friend recently, and just wish I lived closer. Although it is a little worn around the edges, it is a proper local, as well as having an amazing collection of rugby memorabilia. The...service was friendly, the beer excellent, and who could resist a real homemade chilli which, as part of the lunchtime deals, costs only £5.50? I will be returning!More

I was recommended to visit this pub, by a good friend of mine, he was so right. Atmosphere is excellent, full of rugby memorabilia. Beers are excellent, my favourite was ESB, which just beat the London Pride. Food was unspectacular, but filling. Was impressed on...match days they allow young players in- a big nod to Westcliff RFC juniors, who were impecably behaved yesterday. A great place to visit, don’t miss outMore

We called in here for a round of drinks last Saturday before heading onto an England rugby international at nearby Twickenham... The pub was very very busy, as it is a popular drinking stop for people on their way to rugby games... outside multiple people...were drinking and inside the bar was also packed... Despite this, the service was outstanding and we were served in minutes... there must have been about 6-8 bar staff constantly serving and asking who was next so customers were served in no time... The decor maybe a touch dated, but this is a traditional boozer and full of character... There were real ales and the usual drink options you find in a decent pub, plus even food being served outside from a BBQ... The atmosphere was friendly and jovial and people were enjoying themselves... probably the best pub in the area near the station... we thought it was brilliant!More

A great old pub with some comfy fireside chairs. It has a 'log' fire (I have not checked if it is a real log fire or a gas powered one) in the Winter and a cool breeze in the Summer. The staff are always friendly...and helpful; the food is rather good for a pub and the service is also above average. There is plenty of seating outside; at the front you can look over at the local pond and wildlife and out the back there is a greater seating area. Make this your first choice of pub if you are in the area and you might decide not to go anywhere else.More

The price for a drink is ripping people off on rugby days the price of a pint goes up.i don’t mind paying extra if in luxury. This pub is just a smelly dump that needs a good clean from top to bottom and a coat...of paint might help.More
