So far we have only tried the great tapas outside bar and we pleasantly surprised - very unusual and quite exciting. Will have to go back to the main restaurant for a visit to the fantastic meals on offer

Another visit to the Richmond arms, new menu since our last visit and some lovely new things to try, had the king crab claw for starters and the turbot as a main plus lovely desert I can't prenouce but it was lovely. Food here isn't cheap but for some things in life you get what you pay for. On that... More

Have been fortunate enough to visit this great pub/restaurant/pizzeria/hotel which is at the heart of the community in this quintessentially British village. The whole team take great pride in what they do and are hard working, creative and caring. On only our second visit they remembered us, where we had sat previously and even our order from the first visit... More

Visited the restaurant recently with my wife and it was a enjoyable experience. The menu is interesting with some very good fusions of styles and tastes. Good selection of reasonable wines is available along with the normal bar selection. Service is good considering the type of place it is. Interestingly, we had a young, somewhat pretentious young guy sitting nearby... More

My friend had heard a good report about The Richmond Arms and on the strength of this we booked a table for three for lunch. It was cramped, noisy and the service was very slow indeed. The food was good although small portions. As a veggie/vegan there was very limited choice but what I got tasted OK, but I wouldn't... More

Service excellent, choice of food good, food very tasty. Had the fab quail and the brisket, which was a lot of meat, too much for me but probably not for everyone. Divided into formalish and relaxed eating, I will be going back to try the woodfore pizzas :-) !!!

Food was great, the service was great, the location was great - really enjoyed my first trip to the Richmond Arms. As a vegetarian my heart generally sinks at the idea of tofu but the main course gave a whole new meaning to tofu. And the dessert was truly amazing, too - a dulche de leche brulee, with banana ice... More

Great to see Woodcock & Snipe on the menu. Snipe came traditionally prepared as a starter and was very good. Starters of Brussel Sprouts with black pudding and quail in a molasses sauce were also enjoyed. Main course steaks were spot on in terms of meeting the required doneness and the pork fillet with sweet potato was liked. As usual... More

The atmosphere is always good here, the service is right on the ball and the food produced by Jack and his team in the kitchen is just so amazing. He conjures up the most wonderful dishes with a fantastic array of flavours . My mouth water's just at the mention of the Richmond Arms.

So firstly the breakfast is excellent. Not sure why the sausage and bacon tastes so good it just does. Fresh fruit and museli makes you feel you have done the groundwork for what follows. We stayed over and our room was great. Beds very comfortable and rooms warm. We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday and both had the... More
