There were three ales on in here- Young's Bitter, London Pride, and Twickenham Naked Ladies (£4.55 a pint). We made this our lunch stop, mainly because they advertised lunchtime specials at £5 a pop. They include pub grup favourites such as burger & chips, ham, egg & chips, plougman's - between us we had these three meals and all were good quality and a decent size. We reckoned that this venue was a good bet for a lunchtime stop.

This struck me as a very comfortable and sort of homely pub. I know they do B & B accommodation here, but I didn't get the hotel bar feel abot the place. It still felt like a very much off the beaten track locals' pub. It's carpeted throughout with two separate rooms, joined by an archway behind the bar counter. The right hand room was being patronised by ten or so members of what looked like a ladies' luncheon club. We sat in the slightly larger room on the left, where there's a magnificent pillared bar back that looked Victorian.

This is another delightful pub in this part of the world, and one to which I would be very happy to pay a return visit.

I like the 'Dukes Head', it has fond memories. A good old-style pub, traditional bar, with rather small beer terrace (in the sun) at the back. I watched the cup final on the t.v. here with a local friend. Convivial enough, and often unbusy, so service is usually quite prompt. They do a good sauvignon blanc at the DH if the summer weather makes you thirsty! If you can find this pub, off the beaten track! Up behind the bus terminus off Red Lion Street, and up The Vineyard a bit....and you're there! Not really walking distance from Richmond train station, and if you don't know the back streets well, you might not find it..! Worth the trek tho' if you do. 6/10 TJ

June 2011 update- The Twickenham beer is usually in good form here, but it's not cheap.

May 2009 - Large traditional inn in a residential side street away from the town centre and off the Richmond pub "circuit".

Despite having lived in Richmond for a good number of years, I still find it challenging to get to this pub without my trusty, well-thumbed A-Z.

It's a former Courage pub - note the bar back in the main bar indicating this. It's been refurbished within the last year and, whilst it still remains comfortable and cosy, it does now appear to have something of a generic hotel-bar atmosphere to it, based on my recent afternoon visit.

There's a wide range of food offered and there's a clear emphasis on this and the Bed and Breakfast side of the business now. However, you don't feel uncomfortable just popping in for a pint.

3 real ales were on - Youngs Ordinary, London Pride and Twickenham Sundancer. I found the Sundancer to be a splendid citrus flavoured fruity beer, albeit at a rather pricey £ 3.25p per pint for a beer with an ABV of only 3.7% and which is brewed only a couple of miles away. I've previously had decent Sharps Doom Bar in here also.
