Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were staying at a local campsite “concierge camping “ and exploring the local area and after a long dog walk we popped in for some food and a drink. The food was lovely and service was great. Had a nice chat with some locals.... One of whom pointed us in the direction of Kingley Vale . We are so glad he did as we walked there the next day and it was awesome. We would have booked in for Sunday dinner after that but they were full . We will return to the camping site and therefore the Richmond Arms for the Sunday roast at another time.More

Been about 15 years since visiting this pub. We noticed it had a 4.5 rating so went for lunch. We had the venison hot pot. Wow! This is not a fast food restaurant so waited a while ( not too long), but what you get...is properly cooked food, not heated up pre prepared. We were told he is a new chef. Maybe he’ll get them from 4.5 to 5* Beer was very good, Sussex best Very attentive and pleasant staff.More

Such a lovely cosy pub with friendly staff and locals. We asked for a Baileys hot chocolate which was delicious, and the men enjoyed their pints. Wishing them all a Happy New Year, see you in 2024

I organised a surprise 80th Birthday celebration for my mother and thirty of her closest friends. After visiting several potential venues locally, I was left quite disappointed by how despondent, disinterested and inflexible these venues were. What I experienced at the Richmond Arms from Sam...and Dom was the complete opposite. They were friendly, engaging, helpful and flexible from the outset. The afternoon could not have gone better. The team had arranged for us to have the whole restaurant area which made for a nice private and cosy environment for everyone to enjoy. Chief came in early to cook food that was extremely well received by all. Beef Wellington, Coq au Vin, vegetable lasagna were all fantastic and exactly what was needed on a slightly wintry November day, nothing was too much trouble. In these tough trading time it was refreshing to experience genuine hospitality. Thanks Sam, Dom and the team enough for making my mum stay truly special and would fully recommend a visit to the Richmond Arms in the idyllic West Aisling. I can also testify to the Monday night pizza and a pint which is excellent. Proper thin crust wood fired pizza from the van and cold pint, ideal come winter or summer.More

The interior is very attractive and the one waitress welcoming and friendly. The menu is varied and interesting with a Christmas special as well as the main choices. We ordered from the main menu, two courses. We had booked a table for 12:30 pm and...the first course was served within about half an hour. However it then took over an hour for our main dishes to arrive. Two of us were served but then the waitress departed to deal with other customers paying their bill before returning with the rest of our dishes The food was presented well but was served on completely cold plates which meant the turkey/rabbit/fish we ordered were only warm, whilst the sauces served directly onto the plates were cold . Only the excellent roast potatoes were hot. My dish, the turkey, was accompanied by green vegetables. The broccoli and green beans may have been introduced to the boiling water but their acquaintanceship was brief! ! They were warm but raw. so, a disappointing lunch. The restaurant was not busy so that cannot have been the excuse for the poor kitchen service.More

A very nice village pub, popular with locals and welcoming to visitors. We booked for Sunday lunch with our 2 dogs. They recognised that they were big dogs and relocated us to a more comfortable table straight away. The ale was well kept and the...roast beef was excellent. If we are in the area again we will definitely pop in for more of the same.More

A great pub and restaurant. Had an evening meal here on a quiet Thursday evening and everything was fantastic. Had some of the best food I've had in a long time. Service and atmosphere were great and would definitely recommend.

We popped in for quick lunch yesterday with a friend , after a 50 minute wait my husband went to ask if our food was coming ? ‘ yes ‘ …food eventually arrived, waitress said I’ll get your hummus ! Explained that we ordered fries..10...minutes later I asked if they were coming? Waitress said that the ink had run out on the roll and the order hadn’t gone through to the kitchen! My husband had earlier overheard that they had accidentally delivered out order to another table that arrived 1/2 hour after us , with a similar order! OK mistakes happen but when they do you should explain and apologise not blatantly lie to people . At no point did either of the waitresses say sorry, in fact I think it was an inconvenience that we were there. I will say’ food is lovely’ service poor.More

to be honest I can't remember seeing one (it was dark). Great pub for a casual drink and eats is at The Royal Oak, just north of Chilgrove. Great atmosphere, real country pub down a winding lane!
