We eat at the Britannia frequently and the manager Dom is amazing always checking everything is tip top.
We went on Tuesday night and ordered food after getting a waitress attention one of our party ordered the fish pie We were told it would take a bit longer as this was 6:15 we weren’t worried I’d had it the week before and it came within 15 minutes All our food was ordered to come at once 40 minutes later it arrived after reminding the waitress
The fish and chips disappointing we have this virtually every month The batter was scorched the chips few were cold
The fish pie was the worst it was hard to find any fish in it and seemed to have been substituted for mushroom
Our guest was trying to be polite but I could see he was struggling
Such a shame from one of best pubs in Richmond

Our second visit. As always great service, really attentive. A bit less helpful with my wife’s coeliac disease than last time but for all that the food was lovely. But if a gap between main and sweet after sweets were ordered. I think we’d been forgotten but didn’t detract from a good meal.

It was my birthday and on arrival I got a lovely glass of champagne on the house in celebration, they also sang happy birthday to me when bringing out my dessert. The atmosphere is so friendly that other guests were also joining in. It was the perfect way to spend my birthday and a glorious Spring Sunday afternoon.

We actually arrived early but were told it wasn’t a problem, a table was available. Lovely welcome and staff waiting on table were great, very helpful. Selection on the menu was great and also wine selection was quite large. Food was tasty and well cooked, my partner went for the lamb rump and I had a steak which we both enjoyed. Would definitely use again.

The Britannia is an outstanding pub with great food and exceptional service. I eat here very often as in my opinion it is the best ‘foody’ pub in Richmond and is probably in the Top 3 places to eat in Richmond, period.

It was my first dining experience at The Britannia. The service was excellent, my daughter is gluten free and they were able to fill this requirement, my mother is vegetarian who wanted the cod but with the roast lunch sides rather than the usual accompaniments again the kitchen were very accomodating. The manager was attentive and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was presented beautifully and tasted as good as it looked! The atmosphere was upbeat and yet retained a calmness, perfect for a Sunday. I would thoroughly recommend The Britannia to family and friends and I will be going back in the not too distant future! Many Thanks

As always a wonderful meal and a friendly warm welcome. The food is always of a high standard, fresh well sourced ingredients and expertly cooked. It may be a little more expensive than the other pubs but the quality is always consistently high, and better cooking than many restaurants offer.
