Just off the main high street in Richmond, is the charming Britannia pub and restaurant. Richmond is known for its characteristic pubs, and this one definitely fits the bill with its historic wooden floors throughout, leading out to the delightful out door area and roof terrace.
The pub is long and narrow, which just adds to its adorable charm. On tap are a selection of real ales, matched with a wide range of food including modern English classics.
Outside, the garden area is a perfect sun trap for those long pub lunches. The outdoor furniture was pretty and comfortable although, I would prefer some cushions too.
Unfortunately it was not the hottest of days when I was sat outside, but the out door area is protected by the surrounding walls so you don’t really feel the cold.
I loved the style of The Britannia, from the menus to the old style signage hanging off an old street light out the back. The charm was present throughout which was lovely.
So, now onto the best bit – the food! There is a huge selection of food that caters to all. The chefs will always try to adapt a meal if you want something specific but have an allergy. But, from 12 -4 every week day there is a lunch menu for £9.95. This includes a selection of sandwiches, burger’s and quiche, all served with chips or salad. Also included is a choice of soft drink or house wine.
The food is not just the standard pub rubbish. The presentation of the food makes the already delicious cuisine even more appealing. Aesthetics really are everything! Just look at my food below (this was the Stilton and caramelized onion quiche and potato salad).
Last but not least, I want to say a special thank you again to the waiter who bought over Prosecco to myself and Lucy as we were both celebrating our birthdays. Such a lovely touch which definitely made our lunch time!
Overall, definitely worth a visit next time you are in the area.
Now on to exploring other delightful places. Let me know if you have any suggestions for around the Richmond area too!
