We have been going to the Richmond Arms ever since it was taken over and restored by the current owners. The food is always fabulous and the service very attentive. My husband and I went last Thursday for dinner and it was, as usual, a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable evening. All the food was top quality and delicious. I seldom... More

The pub itself is a good venue, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It is a destination we have been waiting for some time to be able to get to. We booked in for a Sunday lunch, expecting good things. The first course was OK, smoked duck starter reasonably tasty and the scotch egg really good. However the mains... More

7 of us had a wonderful birthday meal with a wide variety of starters..including an amazing chirizo breadcrumbed scotch egg and lovely mains ..such unusual flavours and presentation. Prices seemed on the higher side but we don't know local prices. We had brought a chocolate birthday cake with us and the manageress, Anna, who is wonderful, organised lighting the candles... More

Oh dear there is always one and this time it is me. We really did not enjoy our evening at The Richmond and I feel with fair justification. 1. Food My husband ordered Turbot and for £23 he expected more than the tail end with very little meat on it. It came with a side of boiled potatoes with no... More

We ate here several times when we were in the area in April, July and September. Every time it was consistently excellent. Particular dishes I should highlight were the tempura soft shell crab, fish, the serrano ham, the goat and every Sunday lunch we had. Service was outstanding as always and whilst the fare is fine dining standard the prices... More

We are regulars at this excellent country pub but this was the first time we went for Sunday lunch and we were not disappointed. Its so nice to be able to have something a little different for Starters but still have a classic albeit very high quality sunday roast to follow. My wife had a wonderful stuffed courgette flower and... More

Had a lovely lunch with the family, we started with the Chorizo scotch eggs, which were the best scotch egg I have ever had, then we had the steaks, cooked on BBQ with dripping cooked chips. The staff could not have been nicer and all came out in good time and piping hot. Excellent and recommended.

Quite a quirky place that is bold with flavours and puts together dishes I would never imagine going well together - but they do!!

We've been before to the skittle alley with our dog and had a very nice pizza but the restaurant experience is something completely different. The menu is concise but varied and innovative, so much so, with the exception of the pork dish (which I don't eat) I asked the maitre'd to select my starter and main as a surprise. Both... More
