This was another visit to The Britannia Richmond with another group of friends. Again, we all thoroughly enjoyed the food, cocktail and wine. I love this place - it's a hidden gem (shhhh) - it's not on the river but provides outdoor dining spaces in terms of a terrace and a garden. The garden is a dog-friendly place but if you don't like dogs, the dog owners to date all seem to have well-trained dogs so they won't bother you. There is an excellent level of service and attention to detail. The menu is varied providing options for meat eaters, seafood lovers and vegetarians and it provides more than your standard fare as well as some classics.

Excellent food in a beautiful terrace garden. Staff were attentive and fun, especially the manager Richard who made our party feel very welcome. The wine list was very good and well looked after. Will look forward to coming back. Set meal was £23 for three courses. Excellent value.

This is my favorite pub/restaurant in Richmond. I have never had a bad experience, the food is delicious, the staff is attentive friendly and helpful. Dominic runs the show and puts a smile on every face. The atmosphere is cozy, buzzing and it is located in a very lovely part of Richmond near the Green. Highly recommend you visit it, all people that I recommended have been back several times. Well done Britannia!! A very happy customer :)

Fantastic service. 6 of us for Sunday Lunch. Unfortunately the roast beef was raw and cold, but the staff were very gracious about dealing with this, and our drinks were refilled to make up for this. Loved the asparagus appetiser, but the chicken liver pate was extremely offaly. Give the profiteroles a miss - dry and cardboard-like, but the meringue was nice.

Booked table for pre cinema at 6.45. Bar downstairs busy with good atmosphere.
My partner arrived first and was immediately welcomed by the manager. I was soon after and we were immediately shown to a lovely large table on the first floor outside terrace.
Great service with a smallish but very well chosen menu, same can be said of the wine list.
Very good quality food, beautifully presented. All freshly prepared.
Wines very reasonably priced.
Altogether a great experience and will definitely return and recommend.

I was there on Sunday with my wife and son. The manager is always welcoming in this pub.
Always remembers a face too. It’s a great atmosphere and outside in the sun out the back is great.
I would recommend for lunch and special occasions.
The food is wholesome and unctuous.
Need to visit more often. The best in Richmond!

I visited with my husband and 5 year old daughter for Sunday lunch and had a wonderful time. The man who showed us to our table heard my daughter's name and remembered it to talk to her by name for the whole visit which delighted her.

We were lucky to visit Richmond on the hottest weekend of the year today.
We were sat outside on the roof terrace, which was a glorious suntrap with awnings to share to your liking.
Completely blown away by the first Sunday Dinner we had eaten out... for as long as we could remember. One Chicken, one beef. Both meats were incredible and succulent.
Staff were incredibly attentive and a pleasure to speak with.

Location wise, this place has it all...
we visited both Richmond park, and Richmond Green (Park before, Green post) and soaked in the lovely surroundings and greenary.
Very close to a evidently popular icecream parlour! 40+ queue, so... maybe next time!

Service and staff are excellent! Very attentive and helpful. Drinks menu great! Food - starters were good. Out of our group most had Fish & Chips for Mains, this needs to improve. Chips didn't look fresh, more re-heated and oily. Fish too was oily and could be a better portion size. Presentation good. Another member had Chicken and that was ok.
Food needs to improve overall to be rated as overall great gastro pub! Location great, ambience great, so they have everything working for them except food for now....quality needs to improve as F &C is not complicated dish. So essential to get fundamentals spot on!

Had a lovely birthday lunch last Sunday. Great table on upstairs terrace. Umbrellas meant could enjoy the weather without overheating in the sunshine. Good service. Delicious food. Sunday lunch was very generous and so no room to fit in the desserts.

Have booked here for lunch prior to matches at Twickenham on at least 5 occasions - each time everyone has agreed it was an excellent experience. Great food, great drinks, with welcoming, friendly service by the team. A gem, one of the best gastropubs London has to offer.

One of the best pubs in the Richmond/Twickenham area. I like the fact that it is "adult centric" and not child centric so you don't get screaming kids running riot. Nice grown up ambience.

We had a lovely table in the downstairs garden area which was perfect for Sunday lunch. The food was very good and quite a lot of it especially the Sunday roasts that were delicious. The pate and salmon starters were also excellent and all this left no room for desert ha! ha! You would never have thought you were just off a busy high street the ambiance was great.

Went with a friend for dinner at Britannia and really like their food. It is always fresh and nicely prepared. Also the staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is that it is getting a bit crowded downstairs and can be quite loud - so wish that they would keep their reserved dining guests in the upstairs room which is really nice and more peaceful when having dinner.

There were 6 of us and every dish was great, faultless. 4 of the party had steaks and we all agreed they were the best we had had for some time. Therefore if you like good beer, good steak and maybe a glass of red, this is the place for you.

My friend and I met for a midweek dinner and had a really lovely meal.
The food is certainly really well cooked and lovely flavours. Good wine selection if you want a bottle.
The pub has a buzzy vibe, quite loud for a pub with no music and the staff are mostly very attentive and friendly indeed.
Would return for another meal in future. If there is one criticism it is that the main meal portions could be slightly larger.
