This pub offers the classic Turner view from Richmond Hill down over the Thames,magnificent.Don't be put off by the Greene King signage ,there is lots of interest inside.The low ceiling by the entrance gives immediate character and there are lots of nooks and crannies around the interior.All the front windows give great views as will the first floor bar and dining area.The furniture is traditional apart from some high tables close to the two sided bar.The back section has high backed settles,and despite food being available this doesn't dominate and just drinking is fine.
Several handpumps are double clipped and on my visit the options were regulars GK IPA and Abbott with guests Oakham Citra,Downton New Forest Ale,Welton Heatwave,Thames Side Egyptian Goose and Wimbledon SW17 in decent nick.There is also handpumped Old Rosie Cider.
I welcome the fact that rather than infesting the interior with huge corporate menus with food photos,the menu in The Roebuck is a plain sheet of paper with a selection of pub grub staples priced £9-£14 with a median £12 which seems reasonable for such a honey pot site.Muzak was playing at a background level ,there are no flatscreens or fruit machines and there was a friendly welcome behind the bar.It's rightly in the 2019 GBG,is probably the best real ale pub in Richmond and really should be visited when in the area.I will most certainly be back.

After supping some enjoyable ales by the side of the Thames some of our party questioned the logic of the long climb up Richmond Hill to the Roebuck. Fortunately, I could tempt them by the fact that this pub was awarded CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year 2017 and probably has one of the best views from any pub with the protected World Heritage view of the Thames at this point across the Petersham Meadows.
And yes I agree with the previous reviewer that you shouldn’t be put off by the prominent Greene King plaque outside. GK IPA is a permanent fixture here and for our visit the GK IPA Reserve was available as well. But then the double clipped pumps on the main bar section provided Oakham Citra, two from the Thamesside brewery including White Swan, G2 Brewery Southern Cross and Binghams Citra Summit.
The interior is well described by other reviewers below, but the best thing to do, as long as it is not raining, is to take your pint onto the terrace across the road and enjoy the view.

Located slightly away from the town centre towards Richmond Park, first impressions weren’t great with a Greene King sign outside, so I was expecting the usual bland selection of IPA, Abbott Ale and some variety or other of Old Hen. Needs must though, and as this was the last stop before our hotel we ventured in, only to be pleasantly surprised and to find that this is currently Richmond’s Camra branch Pub of the Year as the friendly barman cheerfully explained.

Décor wise it is perhaps a little generic, having no doubt suffered from renovations at some point that removed much of the original character, but it is nonetheless all very inoffensive and certainly not unpleasant. Although essentially all one open plan room, various partitions and pillars created some cosy areas within. Dark wooden flooring was laid down the centre of the pub with carpet off to either side, whilst the paintwork was predominantly cream with dark wood panelling in places. A few old pictures of the locale were dotted around the walls and a small fireplace was off to one side, although it’s a shame that this was not lit and a cold December evening. A smaller room at the rear had a TV screen showing a sports fixture, although we did not investigate this.

Beers on tap were Oakham Citra, Sambrook’s Powerhouse, Surrey Hills’ Sheer Drop, Dark Star Hophead, Wimbledon Copper Leaf and in a token representation of the owner’s own brews, Greene King IPA. Interestingly even this had only been on for about a month after they apparently insisted that the pub carry at least one of their range. Ciders meanwhile were Aspall’s Suffolk and Weston’s Old Rosie.
