Where do Richmond and surrounding areas locals go?

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.

Whole Foods Market

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


Amazing breakfasts and really friendly staff! They also serve delicious pizzas with thin bases, which come with a free soup at lunchtime.

William Curley

Award-winning chocolatier with the most addictive array of chocolates. Go on a cold winter's day and order the hot chocolate!

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!

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.

Sunshine & Ravioli

A lovely café and lunch venue that is extremely popular with the local crowds. Owner Maurizio is a local character who knows everyone and makes a mean coffee.

Real Ale

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

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.

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!

The Richmond Hill Hotel

The afternoon tea at the Richmond Hill Hotel is great on Sundays at only £24.95.

The Cricketers

Watch the cricket at The Cricketers pub overlooking Richmond Green.


A stunning view from Richmond Hill at the Roebuck. It used to be Mick Jagger's local!


Bavarian sausage and beer in a picturesque setting overlooking the Thames. A great place to meet friends in the summer months...

Marble Hill House

This beautiful 18th century Georgian house is set in stunning parkland close to the Thames. You can go on a guided tour of the house for a fee or just enjoy the park for free.
