Great food and great service but place itself felt a little run down and grotty.

A lovely pub down a quaint lane in Richmond. I can fault anything about the meal, warm service, gorgeous food and a great selection of wine by the glass. I've already been recommending it to friends and colleagues.

Really nice food, staff were fantastic. - however the scallop starter ideally would have another scallop and the chickpeas with the monkfish were slightly undercooked
The Salt Marsh Lamb was 10/10 and the steak tartare starter was brilliant

Our Valentine's meal at the Britannia was absolutely smashing. The 5 course meal with paired wines was wonderfully thought out and utterly delicious. Staff were attentive and efficient. The whole experience was enhanced by the fact that our poodles, Barbara and Brenda, were allowed to come into the restaurant and be with us. We will return again ...

Excellent food and we had a table in the bar area for Valentines night.
It had a vibrant atmosphere with a friendly service.
I had a steak which was really good and a few pints of Doom Bar which was also well received.
I have already recommended this place to my family and friends .

Very good menu with good food choices and a set lunch. Very accommodating as they made me a delicious omelette with other fillings that had not been mentioned on the menu. Would definitely go back. Very good for pre theatre.

Book a table upstairs if you want to have a conversation . Lovely in the summer with upstairs terrace and outside walled garden .

Set menu is really excellent value . Portions were all of a very good size and very tasty ! Service was generally very attentive . Overall a hidden gem

Very friendly staff, good wine list, all 6 of party thought food was excellent but vegan options limited. Lighting a little bright. Dog friendly. Very impressive overall.

The food and service were fantastic. The waiters and bar staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The only slight criticism I would give is that although the food is good value for money, the wine is expensive and it’s a bit noisy for conversation but as you don’t want a quiet pub this is ok.

We went for lunch on a Twickenham Rugby day and the place was heaving with two large parties upstairs. Nevertheless the service was very good and we were regularly asked if we were OK or needed anything. As the proprietor explained, the menu was limited, they had over 200 guests, but still very good indeed, two of us had the Cod and mash which was very good and two had the steak and fries which was also cooked as requested and was excellent. Would certainly recommend.

Wonderful staff, every single one, despite being a very busy pre Christmas Saturday lunch. Food excellent, best around by far. Bought children’s food very promptly, recognising the need to do so. Would definitely go again.

Fantastic food, served by very friendly and helpful staff. Dominic and the team make you feel very welcome. The only issue is that it can get quite noisy when full....the curse of the wooden floored pub.

Excellent Saturday lunch with delicious food. Manager excellent, he had to be to correct the mistakes of his rather young and inexperienced staff who resembled school kids working their Saturday jobs. This won't put us off coming again!

The food is great but I was squeezed in front of the xmas tree which wasn’t ideal. The waitress wasn’t very friendly and seemed a little detached, just unlucky I guess.

Brilliant Xmas dinner at the Britannia. Everything was spot on. Food was superb, excellent service from the staff, good ales on tap and generally a lovely atmosphere. It was kinda loud but that’s because it was Friday and Christmas vibe and everyone was having a great time. Couldn’t fault it. Will be back soon.

Another very enjoyable dinner at The Britannia. Usually dine upstairs, but were seated in the downstairs bar due to a private function upstairs. A good ambience, but noisier up until around 9pm than we would have liked, although not excessive. Menu is not extensive, but quality is excellent. Manager was extremely friendly and service excellent. Will definitely return!
