Location, location, location. Richmond is just outside Melbourne, easily accessible via train, tram and Uber---so close, yet still has that laid-back charm. There are many pubs, cafes, small shops, nooks and crannies to explore here. One can start breakfast with the locals at the pastry...More

Although we prefer Bridge Road, Swan Street has quite a few eateries and pubs. The best pub is the Richmond Club hotel. If you want to eat a kebab, then you'll find one near Church Street.

I’ve lived in Richmond for 5 years now and I feel like this place has deteriorated over that time. Testament perhaps that on a Friday night the joint is half empty and the uncaring staff stand behind the bar looking bored. Apart from the decor...More
