My favourite roast in London (and I'm picky and have tried out a lot of places!!!!) Incredibly crispy roasts as they should be and all the trimmings, great meat, great drinks and brilliant atmosphere with the bar or 2 different outside terraces. Highly highly recommend,...More

Rule Britannia most definitely. This is a posh pub. Geared up for good eating. Menu is not cheap - but then we're in Richmond. It's not formal but feels like a proper dining room vs. the pub. Just really nice frankly. Went for Sunday lunch...More

Tucked away between the green and the high st, but a rare find. Excellent food, friendly accommodating staff. Nice pub garden for the summer. Highly recommended

I had never been to The Brittania before but knew it of old as a man with a dog pub which didn't exactly encourage me to go and eat there. After a panic as nothing had been booked for Mother's day I called The Brittania...More

We went for a pre-theatre dinner as we liked the look of the menu. The starters, artichoke soup and crab mayonnaise were delicious, but the main courses let it down. My cod was fine, but the skin was burnt to a crisp rather than being...More

Hi there, We don't have parking as we are 50 yards from the green where there is plenty of metered parking available. Hope this is O.K. Please call 0208 940 9786 if we can help further. Many thanks Charles

The oldest pub in Richmond with bags of charm, in the centre of town just off The Green and a four minute walk from the station. Come in and discover our secret sun trap garden and roof terrace, whilst tucking into the best pub food and perfectly kept beer in Richmond! We buy our meat and fish ourselves from Smithfield and Billingsgate markets to guarantee quality and freshness. Our upstairs restaurant is fully serviced with a bar, TV screen and stereo and available for business meetings and celebrations. Dogs are welcome. Daily set menus offer great value for money and our Long Lunch Sunday, four courses including an aperitif for £23.95 Is quite simply the best deal in town. A place to relax and escape in Richmond's cosiest and friendliest pub!
