This was our second pub visited on arrival in Richmond for our latest walking tour. They offer just 3 pull pumps, but the one we chose was out of action (temporarily) so we had to make do with Hobgoblin Gold which is not a favourite of mine. It seems to be a slightly rundown pub which could benefit from some... More

I have brought my young family in here several times during the day now. Although the decor is a little tired, it lends itself to being an aged drinking house (the oldest in Barney) and adds to its quaintness. It's not modern and contemporary and that's good as not everyone wants that kind of pub. There is also a great... More

Went into here after seeing a 4.5 star review. How? The drinks were fine, and the bar lady was friendly enough but the decor was shabby and the outside beer garden was something else. Needs a good renovation.

Beer... More

If you're looking for a quiet place, then this isn't the place to go! Music very loud. Not a lot of seating but if you are interested in sport one side of the pub had a wide screen TV. As we only popped in for a pint it was okay. Friendly staff and clean amenities. Not for us though, but... More
