Service, 10/10. Food 10/10. For me, the benchmark is a real pie, with pastry all around, not just a stew in a pot with a puff pastry lid. This was real. And delicious. Five of us ate here, we all chose off the set price...More

Welcome to The Railway Tavern
You will find The Railway Tavern in Richmond within a short stroll of Twickenham, Mortlake and Ham - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past
The Railway Tavern was known in 1855 as The Railway Hotel, one of several pubs in the famous Quadrant of Richmond. In Victorian days the pub also offered rooms to its patrons, perhaps for sleep after one too many at the bar - or for those catching an early train. Today, the rooms have gone, but the pub remains and has been restored to its former glory. In fact, it's the perfect railway waiting room.

One of a kind
The Railway Tavern is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
