A nice riverside pub with the riverside patio across the road. Watch out for stinging nettles in the patio area. A good range of ales including ones from local breweries.

One of my favourite places to go for a drink after work when the weather is nice - the outdoor space is fantastic. Lovely on the inside too!

I went there on a sunny day, sat by the riverside.This place is probably one of the best pub to go to if you're anywhere near Richmond. Situated by the river, surrounded by ducks. The food was good, staff were fun.

In one of the nicest outside spots in London I didn't really expect to have such a quality roast dinner. Every component was perfectly cooked and the gravy was spectacular. Nice ales as well
