Quinno _ left this review about Roebuck

In an area where people walk past you wearing a set of togs that cost more than I would earn in a week, I was a bit apprehensive about what I’d find here especially when I clocked the Greene King livery outside. But fear not – this is run by a friendly, old-skool pair whose style means that some of the more upmarket customers reign themselves in a bit. Inside has been modernised fairly tastefully and retains a tight, multi-area’d and low-ceilinged layout. A big selling point is the view from the front window, as you sit atop Richmond Hill overlooking the flatlands to the Thames below (‘World Heritage listed’, I am reliably informed). You can also take your beer out to the bench opposite. GBG22 listed and there were four cask on, the two most interesting were Wimbledon Copper Leaf (NBSS 4) and Exeter Darkness (3.5), the latter of which the landlord recommended as he poured the Wimbledon – he clearly saw us for what we were! Had a bit of chat with him as he served, something you don’t get much of these days. Food is inevitably a big seller here but it stays the right side of the line from being a full-on gastropub, drinkers are very welcome. So this one is well-worth the shoe leather to try-out, good beer and good atmosphere.

This is a really nicely presented gastro pub at the top of Richmond Hill which still manages to cater fairly well for those just wanting to stop in for a drink. The pub has a two bar set-up with a number of separate seating areas created by partitioning walls and screens, which give the place a sense of comfort and cosiness. You enter into the main front bar with a sizeable seating area to the left in what almost feels like a self-contained space with three or four tables hemmed in between the porch and a partitioning wall. The main part of the room is a bare boarded corridor-like space with drinking ledges and high tables served by bar stools. There is a small servery to the rear with a tongue and groove panelled counter, etched glass mirror with an image of the titular roebuck, and a nice canopy lined with what appeared to be old theatre programmes. To the right, hidden by partitioning screens, the room opens out into a carpeted dining area with standard tables and chairs, plain painted walls and some corporate promotional blackboards, plus a fireplace on the end wall with another nice etched glass mirror above it, this time depicting the image of a stag’s head. The left side of the pub is also carpeted and runs beyond the servery into a rear lounge full of banquette and chair seating options under bare brick walls decorated with old black and white photos of the local area. There’s a nice brick fireplace in one corner and as with much of the pub aside from the central ‘corridor’, most people seemed to be eating.
I wasn’t expecting a great deal on the beer front, so was surprised to find a good row of handpulls dispensing Wimbledon Copper Leaf, Greene King Abbot Ale, Downton New Forest Ale, Exeter Avocet Ale, Thameside Wryneck Rye and Ascot 5/4 Favourite along with two real ciders. I took a punt on the 5/4 Favourite, which was in peak condition and easily lasted the distance, yet still left me £4.50 out of pocket.
Despite the clear focus on food, I thought this was a really nice, comfortable pub with a warm, cosy feel to it, making it an ideal pit-stop after the walk up Richmond Hill or a day out in Richmond Park. The varied ale selection added to the pub’s appeal and I’d be more than happy stopping off here again the next time I’m passing by.

Greene King pub in the GBG.

Enough staff to deal with the hordes of undecided, perusing the options available but clogging the bar.

Mainly setup for dining but a nice row of high stools, with a view over Petersham Meadows. Just had to move the kids trike out the way first.

Beer was very good - perfect Oakham Citra - the colour of which had to be seen to be believed.
