As others have pointed out, this is a pub. It occasionally has live music and is open late. Therefore there will be noise from the bar until the pub closes. Three choices, don't book here in the first place, use ear plugs or join in. Far better to join in and enjoy the good range of ales and other drinks... More

For a room only this felt a little expensive. The rooms were ok, but more like a £60 a night place. Very clean but very old fashioned. Staff were nice. The pub seemed open late and I could still hear people there at 2am so not good if you're a light sleeper.

A little gem! Paid £75 for a family room and it was lovely! Really spacious and light with two huge windows. Good shower, amazingly comfy huge bed with nice linen plus a single bed too. A wee fridge with some breakfast items in there like yoghurt, milk, cereal - plenty tea and coffee. Friendly staff and no noise from bar... More

Nice pub in the middle of the road, you can't miss it. Honest pub food, simple but tasty, good beer selection, the place is cosy and comfortable and the staff is friendly. Also various animations during the week, qui zz night, live music and such. A great honest pub

Upon arrival we found the RED COW was an active neighborhood bar, with the rooms located above, one look at the location, the room and the security, we paid for one night, cancelled the balance and went on to another hotel. Since the bar person was also the hotel person, there was no one to help with luggage. The rooms... More

My wife and stayed at the Red Cow last weekend and we were due to stay for two nights, but after suffering the noise from the pub until 1.30 in the morning we checked out on Monday morning. I spoke to the owner who was complacent at best and his comment was " Well it's a pub " I subsequently... More

lovely friendly staff, beautiful room, however it is a working pub & does play loud music & when the patrons are having a sing & dance you can both hear & fell the vibrations, but like I said it is a pub & not a hotel so you have to expect it when you stay in a place like this

I bought my girlfriend here or should I say, she bought me here. It was pleasantly empty and I realised why. We ordered a roast beef Sunday lunch which came with two very thin slices of beef which was very fatty and three small potatoes. I've been extremely disappointed with the Sunday roasts in other pubs too and The Red... More

Chose this accommodation for its location and price. Walking distance from Richmond train station. Real character of a pub, rooms are cosy and comfortable. Bathroom is spacious with a lovely hot shower. Staff are all very friendly, polite and efficient. Good value for money, we would book again for next year but they are already booked up !!!
