A large Youngs pub by the river, making the most of its upstairs dining room and in summer the outside terrace area which is right by the water (and at high tide very close to it indeed … access can be impeded by the Thames!). There is no longer a carvery, it is now table service which means the downstairs is a bit more civilised and indeed the downstairs bar is remarkably cosy and pleasant considering the way this place can be mobbed on a warm weekend (although if you sit right by the window you risk breathing the outside sitters' cigarette smoke). Access is good from the landward side although the whole riverside is on a bit of a slope at this point. Toilets are downstairs. Beers were Youngs Ordinary - very palatable - and TfA Naked Ladies ("settling" according to the label on the pump clip, which is honest of them at least). Beer wasn't cheap if I recall but eye-watering was three pounds for a can of cola (50p or so in a shop). The White Cross is going to be popular given its size and position but it is worth a visit.

A fine Youngs pub with an excellent Thames Riverside location close to Richmond Bridge.
Fairly small inside but best visited on a fine weather day when the large raised outside patio drinking area to the front of the pub and the smaller balcony accessed through the higher of the inside rooms can be utilised.
Three Youngs beers were on in the shape of Youngs Bitter (on fine form), Special and London Gold and a very passable Twickenham Naked Lady as the guest.
It was a fine day for our visit and the small patio bar was in use and as this had two handpumps with Youngs Bitter and the Guest available saved us from having to go inside. The tap water pump on the patio bar was a nice feature as well. We could have easily stayed here all day, but further Richmond pubs awaited.

Very busy Youngs pub in the perfect location. First really warm day of spring, lovely views across the river, quintessential English outside drinking experience by the river and then Twickenham -Grandstand served in a plastic glass kind of ruined it for me.Wouldnt have had a drink if I had known it was going to be plastic.Dont mind paying with plastic but not drinking from it.deduct one point
