Where do TW9 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...

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.

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!

Beirut Street Kitchen

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


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

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.

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.

William Curley

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

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.

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!

Sporting Feet

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

The Cricketers

Watch the cricket at The Cricketers pub overlooking Richmond Green.

Whole Foods Market

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

Kew Gardens Hotel

Delicious food and a quirky interior makes this gastro pub a great choice every time. Grab a private booth, lounge on a sofa or hide up on the mezzanine.


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