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

Been here a few times. Love the place, friendly staff and delicious food. (Only thing is there is bad toilet cleaning products aroma that fills the place, that really must be addressed.)

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.

The Brittania is our go to in Richmond Upon Thames. Dom and his crew always make us feel welcome in their establishment. We are grateful for the hospitality and excellent food. Did I mention the food. That’s also amazing.

We visited the Britannia on Friday 21st Dec and were upstairs in the restaurant. It was just perfect for a pre Christmas get together with family. Ambience, food and service were EXCELLENT!!!!! The waiting staff and manager were hugely attentive. The bar and restaurant was packed but this didn't affect anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal here. Thanks Britannia

Really lovely food at the Britannia and lovely friendly service. Came for a nice long lunch and was really happy with the quality of the food. Saw some reviews of bad service but on this day it was wonderful - our waitress was lovely, friendly and attentive. Lovely cozy pub for winter - all Christmassy in a small Dickensian street. Definitely going back. Small criticism is that I think they need to sort the plumbing as the loos smelled a bit but its not enough to stop me giving 5 stars!

We had an amazing bookclub lunch. We had the set menu 3 courses each and all of them were excellent, in particular the desserts were sublime! The quality of the food was fantastic with great portion sizes and fabulous tastes. The service was really attentive and very friendly , couldn't have asked for a better lunch. Only thing that I would improve on is how they set out the bill, very confusing ... We will definitely be back! Thank you Chef!

Great hidden gem in the middle of busy Richmond town centre. Food is always great, especially the cod in vermouth sauce. Service is always very attentive. Very cosy in winter and a pretty rear court yard garden for warmer months. Richmond Theatre is very close by, and the Britannia is a good venue for a pre theatre dinner.

Fancied Sunday lunch at the last minute and got a table at the Britannia - not the first visit and that was a deciding factor. Food as usual was good along with a good atmosphere. The management team are friendly and have time for their guests.
