The food was very good, especially as it was a day when rugby was on so everyone was eating to a tight schedule.

A group of 9 of us went to the Britannia for the second year running for lunch on the day of the Rugby Premiership Final. It's a great place with plenty of outdoor space. What makes the biggest difference here is that, despite being packed out on a match day, the at-table service and food were great. We didn't have to move! The place is great but the staff make it fantastic. Thank you.

It was a lovely evening ad we had a table on the terrace. The food was exceptional. Much more than typical "pub food. " Service was attentive even though they were busy.

We had a bit of trouble with food waiting times, but the staff were incredibly apologetic and generous with free wine and deserts to compensate. I would be happy to go back.

We had a lovely time at the Britannia. The appetizers we had were scrumptious and the desserts were homemade and quite delicious. It was a warm evening so we sat in their spacious and inviting garden. Would definitely recommend and look forward to coming back!

Lovely Sunday roast. Feels more like a restaurant rather then pub. Staffs are very friendly, approachable and yet attentive. Price is bit higher then average pub but quality of food is higher too. Looking forward to go back and try their other dishes.

Probably, if they could stand the noise. Food is excellent for pub food but the service was quite slow. We weren't in any hurry but did start to wonder when we would be served. I think for what we had, it was quite expensive. We would probably go again but maybe during the week when not so noisy.

Let's keep this short and sweet. Four of us went to The Brittania after completing a charity half marathon walk. All of us had a wonderful Sunday roast dinner and couldn't fault anything (food or service). We'd definitely return. 10/10.

This was our second visit to this unique pub tucked in a little lane off the Richmond green. The pub looks like a regular joint but the food is good. The petite blond waitress is very friendly n efficient. We had starters of melon n steak, burratta salad, prawns n scallops. All very good. For mains we had duck, fish n Chips , steak n Pollock with potatoes. We had two glasses of Malbec. Overall it was a lovely evening out. Worth visiting again.

Sunday lunch with partner. Me roast lamb, him crab starter and roast chicken, sticky toffee pudding shared. Bottle of Pinot Grigio at reasonable price. All excellent particularly roast potatoes that were actually crisp - an extinct species in my experience. We had asked upon booking to be seated on the roof terrace and a table had been reserved for us in this area. Despite the fact there was much busyness due to Easter bank holiday the service was excellent and we were under no pressure to vacate our table at the end of the meal. I'm a local but this is the first time i've been to The Britannia. It is my new favourite place.

Having lived in Richmond all our lives, we couldn’t believe we didn’t know about the Britannia. What a hidden gem. We had a table on the roof terrace which was perfect - as was everything else. The food was brilliant and we were spoilt despite it being busy. Wouldn’t hesitate to come back here again.

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
