Where do Richmond and surrounding areas locals go?

Richmond Green

The perfect spot for a picnic in the heart of Richmond. Pick up your tasty treats on the way from the shops around the corner...

No 1 Duke Street

A great independent addition to Richmond's eating and drinking scene. Be that for a relaxed brunch (and bellini!), a lazy coffee on a sofa, a pre-theatre meal or a lively night out.

Sporting Feet

A specialist sports equipment shop for the serious sportsman. It specialises in custom-made footwear to fit your choice of sport perfectly.

Whole Foods Market

A welcome addition to Richmond's food scene, offering a mouth-watering array of fresh food.

The Cricketers

Watch the cricket at The Cricketers pub overlooking Richmond Green.

Petersham Nurseries

This acclaimed garden centre offers the most amazing and tranquil experience to eat, shop and explore.

So Bar

A really cool little bar on Richmond Green with a really relaxed and friendly vibe. Waiter service by friendly staff and it's open pretty late on weekends.

Real Ale

A multi award-winning independent beer shop, actively supporting British micro-breweries. A liquid delicatessen!

A Cena

A delicious local Italian restaurant near Richmond Bridge.

Bill's

Breakfast, lunch and dinner, Bill's always delivers on service and tasty, freshly cooked food. The Bill's breakfast comes highly recommended for those with healthy appetites!

Richmond Theatre

As well as its beautiful architectural style, Richmond Theatre puts on some great performances, from fantastic theatre groups to world famous music artists, all year round.

Knot

Just inside Richmond Station, the smell of Knot's delicious pretzels wafts around the entrance enticing you in!

The Old Ship

A beautiful old-fashioned pub that backs onto the Thames, right next door to Richmond Green. For a nice glass of wine in Richmond, you probably couldn't get much better. Really good ales if you're into that kind of thing.

Ches's Trattoria

During the day this place functions as a greasy spoon café usually full of builders, but in the evening it turns into an amazing, authentic, family run Italian restaurant. The food is to die for and because they don't have an alcohol licence, its BYOB!

Urban Diner

A traditional American themed dinner with chilli fries to die for. Situated nice and close to the Thames, so you can go for a nice stroll afterwards to walk off all that food!
