As part of a day coach trip, we were deposited in Richmond for shopping time and to get lunch. This proved surprisingly difficult, everywhere we looked seemed to have rather odd menus! We didn't want something odd such as Pollock Braised in Red Cabbage with an Apricot Jus! We didn't actually see that by the way but not far off!... More

Cosy, charm, relaxed, real fires and board games. What can I say more! A real treasure again in the heart of Richmond. Whether solo, in couples or family gathering this is a place to come in for a cosy warm, play games, watch tv, eat and socialise with like minded guests. The walls are clad in wood, the ceilings are... More

This is a real gem of a pub, really relaxed but quality environment. If that's not enough the food is great and this is only topped by the service which is first rate been here multiple times served by multiple staff standards all the same high. A must visit if in the area.

Had a wonderful time at The Ship Inn at the start of December. Service was excellent. The bloke who served us was very entertaining, prompt and took great care in looking after us. The food was also impeccable, especially the roast beef which was served with proper Yorkshire puds! Altogether, definitely the best Sunday roast in Richmond.

Staff as always friendly but the mulled wine is the best in town. Having been to London and payed twice as much. The refreshing and tasty mulled wine is a breath of winter air in a some what temperate winter

You can refurbish all you like, but if you have a surly unhelpful barman as on our visit, cramped tables, way overpriced drink and it takes an age to get served, even when not full early in the evening, then you won't be getting our custom again. No wonder the Prince's Head around the corner is always so full to... More

Visited here on Friday and enjoyed the atmosphere. Nice bar snacks available and I tried the chilli squid and chips. Really tasty. Friendly staff and a good choice of beers available.

The service was fast and the seating upstairs was brilliant, away from the hustle of the bar downstairs. The food was really good but the selection of lagers was a bit small. All in all a really good experience.

A great Youngs pub, fabulous wine list, good bar food and an upstairs room for private functions all in the heart of Richmond... 5 mins walk from Richmond Station.

I've always liked this pub. It needed the refurb and looks better for it but with that has lost a bit of character. Personally found a few members of the staff quite rude.... Food wasn't great, do pub grub or do something different don't try both... Will be going back wasn't a total disaster by any means.
