I am late writing this but had a reunion meeting with about 8 people present very liquid no food and lasted about 3 hours. Very clean, pleasant and attentive staff, drink presentation excellent. We had intended a crawl but everyone said lets stay put!

My friend and I picked this pub randomly on our night out in Richmond. The food I ordered (chicken) was really nice, really well made. Service was also fast (food came quickly) and the waiter who served us was really nice to us.

Hi Peter. Review received and appreciated. Unfortunately it is policy (throughout most of Richmond) to use plastics on busy 'event days'. Sorry to lose a star for this but glad you had a good time anyway.

Hi Ravi. This isnt our usual level of service. Hopefully you just caught us on a bad day and if you do decide to visit again you will have a more positive experience.

Description
Welcome to The Railway Tavern You will find The Railway Tavern in Richmond within a short stroll of Twickenham, Mortlake and Ham - however you won't find another like it. Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality. A fascinating past The Railway Tavern was known in 1855 as The Railway Hotel, one of several pubs in the famous Quadrant of Richmond. In Victorian days the pub also offered rooms to its patrons, perhaps for sleep after one too many at the bar - or for those catching an early train. Today, the rooms have gone, but the pub remains and has been restored to its former glory. In fact, it's the perfect railway waiting room. One of a kind The Railway Tavern is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
