We enjoyed Sunday Lunch at The Richmond Arms yesterday. The menu has been put together with care and the ingredients are the very best. The cooking is outstanding and the attention from the front of house staff is just right. Our enjoyment was completely ruined, however, by a really loud, large, family birthday party sharing the space with us. A... More

Probably the best Sunday lunch out ever. Very impressed with the welcome, menu choice and service. Choice of wines good and food excellent. We will return.

Popped in here, without a reservation, on Sunday. They were busy but the lady behind the bar offered us a table so long as we could be finished within a certain time. We decided on the roast beef, which was plentiful, with all the trimmings and we were not disappointed as it was delicious. The staff were friendly and the... More

We visited for my father-in-laws 60th birthday lunch and everything was just lovely. We were a large group, with lots of adults and a good handful of young children. The staff were accommodating and very friendly. The food was excellent and the pub was charming. Can't wait to return.

We have been going to the Richmond Arms ever since it was taken over and restored by the current owners. The food is always fabulous and the service very attentive. My husband and I went last Thursday for dinner and it was, as usual, a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable evening. All the food was top quality and delicious. I seldom... More

The pub itself is a good venue, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It is a destination we have been waiting for some time to be able to get to. We booked in for a Sunday lunch, expecting good things. The first course was OK, smoked duck starter reasonably tasty and the scotch egg really good. However the mains... More

7 of us had a wonderful birthday meal with a wide variety of starters..including an amazing chirizo breadcrumbed scotch egg and lovely mains ..such unusual flavours and presentation. Prices seemed on the higher side but we don't know local prices. We had brought a chocolate birthday cake with us and the manageress, Anna, who is wonderful, organised lighting the candles... More

Oh dear there is always one and this time it is me. We really did not enjoy our evening at The Richmond and I feel with fair justification. 1. Food My husband ordered Turbot and for £23 he expected more than the tail end with very little meat on it. It came with a side of boiled potatoes with no... More

We ate here several times when we were in the area in April, July and September. Every time it was consistently excellent. Particular dishes I should highlight were the tempura soft shell crab, fish, the serrano ham, the goat and every Sunday lunch we had. Service was outstanding as always and whilst the fare is fine dining standard the prices... More
