We have visited The Britannia on a few occasions in recent years and have always enjoyed our meals. Yesterday was no different although I was a little disappointed with my potted shrimp starter. The service was good and it has a nice ambience. As it was a Monday lunchtime it was fairly quiet and we enjoyed a leisurely lunch with our friends.

Decent food, nice enough staff but not a bar in my opinion. Slightly over priced

Had a fantastic evening. Great atmosphere, delicious food and attentive staff. We had the two-course set menu (there's a three-course option too) and the choices were excellent... great value for money. We'll be back!

We arrived early for our booking and they accommodated us with a table straight away (it was early though 5.30pm). Small cosy venue, attentive and friendly staff, lovely ambience, romantic French music and food was delicious. Good portion sizes and well presented. Would definitely visit again.

The food was very nice, and the service was attentive. We were a bit unfortunate in attending at the same time as a very loud party, which made the upstairs area uncomfortably noisy. The downstairs area had a much nicer ambiance by comparison. But not really the restaurant's fault, and the rest of the experience was good.

We were unavoidably over 20 mins late for our booking - the staff were extremely helpful however and very apologetic that they’d had to give our table away. They found us an alternative table as soon as they could (after a slightly chilly drink in the marquee at the back). The place was packed which was good to see, and food was very good, plus the staff were fantastic, making sure everything was to our liking. We ate downstairs on this occasion but have eaten upstairs before - I’d say upstairs is preferable for more of a restaurant experience/less of a pub experience and for better ambience, but food and drink either way were great.

This is a little gem in the middle of Richmond - very close to The Green and down a tiny alley from George Street. I've been a few times with work colleagues, friends and my wife, and the food, service and wine has always been brilliant. The place itself is more restaurant than pub and it feels very unpretentious. A great place for lunch or dinner.

Excellent food. Went pre Theatre, desert was slow coming so we where not able to finish it. We were not charged even though we hadn’t stressed timing to the particular waiter that took the order. Waiting team very good. Will go back when we are in the area.

An excellent lunch. Really impressed with the excellent level of service from staff and the quality of the food.
The pub was busy, but not crowded. Noise levels were perfectly acceptable for a vibrant location.
All in all very impressed and worth making a detour to eat there.

Really lovely food and good service, only slightly spoilt by feeling one of the servers was tired and fed up (we were one of two last tables of the evening on new year's day - it was only 6pm) and really wanted us to leave. I was facing the service station and it was pretty apparent. However we had a lovely family meal where all five of us enjoyed our food having four different dishes, and that's something of a rarity these days.

None of the staff were wearing masks or socially distancing at lunch today and I strongly feel that in this current climate the staff should be masked up when serving as they get so close. I could not believe the ignorance when I asked a female member of staff regarding this matter. She just smirked at me and said “no worries”. If you’re going to open for food then I suggest becoming a little more ‘covid savvy’. Being vaccinated will not protect you completely. Tables were very close together with large numbers of people on them. Food was ok but over priced for what it was. Won’t be going back.

We finally got around to arranging a family Sunday lunch at The Britannia, and we weren’t disappointed. Our roast beef lunch was excellent - although I’d have appreciated more than just two of the superb duck-fat potatoes. The beef, itself was excellent quality, and not over cooked. The children’s roasts were excellent value, and the puddings were scrumptious. The Malbec was very smooth and a good pairing, as was the Croft port with the sticky toffee pudding. Service was variable, but well-intentioned. We were placed outside, in the covered garden, which was surprisingly nice and worth requesting. What wasn’t nice were the toilets - the seat was broken, and a number of tiles are missing. However, all in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
