The Richmond Arms, Richmond

Not often I disagree with the Good Beer Guide but I genuinely dont know how this made it in.

Ignoring the clientelle - all prosecco and wine glasses left on the dirty tables - this had three cask pumps with only one operational. That beer was from Shrewsbury - not a crime in itself - but you would have expected something more LocALE.

The rest was draft - served from a backboard - too far for my elderly eyes to make out what was on offer. I stopped the landlady at Stout - and a serviceable O'haras was dispensed in a funky pint glass.

Then I was charged £6 for the priviledge.

I headed back to Shrewsbury as fast as the train would carry me.

The Mitre, Richmond

Off the beaten track but the GBG convinced me to come and visit.

The pub is wonderful - freehouse, central island bar, wood burning fire, blood red chesterfields.

Very friendly bar staff.

Beer was a little disappointing. A tired TT Landlord - which when kept well is my favourite ale.

Still - I'd recommend the pub.

The Roebuck, Richmond Hill

Greene King pub in the GBG.

Enough staff to deal with the hordes of undecided, perusing the options available but clogging the bar.

Mainly setup for dining but a nice row of high stools, with a view over Petersham Meadows. Just had to move the kids trike out the way first.

Beer was very good - perfect Oakham Citra - the colour of which had to be seen to be believed.
