Where do TW9 locals go?

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.

Cook & Garcia

Quick lunchtime food to eat in or takeaway. The slow roasted chicken wrap seasoned with fresh salads and homemade chutney is a great choice!

Whole Foods Market

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

William Curley

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

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Enjoy a day out all through the year in these beautiful gardens. Make sure you check out the Victorian glasshouse, which is the largest surviving structure of its type in the world.

Kew Village

Fancy a coffee? A slice of cake? A sausage sandwich? Do you need a last minute present for a girlfriend? Or do you just need a post office or access to the District Line....? Head to Kew Village. There is something for everyone!

Portofino

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

Oliver's Wholefood Store

There is no better place than Oliver's in Kew for a guilt free treat! (They have guilty ones too if that's what you are after...)

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.

The White Swan

Amazing food, a great atmosphere and a lovely riverside location. It's very popular, so make sure you book ahead.

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.

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.

Beirut Street Kitchen

The most amazing Lebanese wraps made to order. Lovely coffee too!

Knot

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

Sporting Feet

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

"Kew Gardens is an area that has the quaint air of a village and is apart of this amazing busy city of London. Being able to stroll the river and walk around the Royal Botanical Gardens. Is really a bit of heaven on earth."
