The staff are fantastic, service is faultless and drinks reasonable priced. The quiz on wednesdays is good fun, they show sports, and there's normally always a few people in there. Decent sized outside area as well. Some of the food is great (macaroni cheese, roast dinners, sausages and mash) but there are some real let downs (nachos served cold with... More

We popped into the Railway Tavern (a stones throw from the station) for a Sunday Roast. We fancied a change from the usual pubs we visit in Richmond. The service was very friendly and main meals are good value for money. Unfortunately, the wrong Sunday roast came out. However, this was quickly dealt with. The cauliflower cheese (and mac and...

First time to this venue and definitely wont be the last! Cant say enough about the great staff, full of smiles and chat, super attentive and made our visit very memorable. The pub has a lovely traditional feel with a nice beer garden out back. Drinks are reasonable for London and its right next to the train station.

Stopped off at the Railway Tavern for lunch on our way into central London. First time in this pub, greeted with a friendly welcome. Staff were attentive, but not over so. Good range of offerings from the menu and can recommend the roast dinner.

Went here on rugby Saturday and the place was rammed! Didn't have to wait long at the bar to be served and the staff were all friendly. Was very easy to have a few more pints than I should in the afternoon! I didn't eat but the food looked and smelt nice so I would come back to try it... More

Always visit this pub when I'm in Richmond whether it's with the lads for the rugby, meeting up with friends or out with the family. It's in a great location being right next to the station and is always busy with a nice mix of customers. The food is always great, with good sized portions and a fantastic menu choice... More

The lady who served us even remembered our drinks order when we came back after the game! Great pub, we will definitelt be back on Saturday for the Australia game!... More

Visited the Railway Tavern yesterday before going to the Rugby. The place was packed but we still managed to get a seat. The staff were great, very busy but still friendly and helpful. We ordered hot dogs for the kids and we had the double burgers. So tasty and great value, we'll definitely be back!

Came to the railway tavern last night. What a great pub and atmosphere. Staff were brilliant and the selection of draught beers and ales was top class. I will definitely be back.

Called in at the Railway Tavern on the way back to the station after a nice meal at Pizza Rustic. One of our party was carrying a pizza box with one piece of pizza to take home. Barman refused to serve us saying we couldn't bring food into the pub. No problem getting served at the Orange Tree pub down... More

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.
