Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We love the feel of the place,’ writes a Guide reader in 2017 of this lively pub-with-rooms in a ‘magnificent location’ between Richmond Park and Kew Gardens. It is owned by chef Paul Merrett, who stepped back from Michelin stardom to enjoy the relaxed gastropub style at this jollied-up Victorian inn. Encouraged by ‘excellent staff’, the vibe is buzzy all day: ‘post-school drop-off coffees in the morning, great food and pub atmosphere at night’. Choose from a good-value bar menu (perhaps an Angus burger or a Caesar salad), or sample modern dishes in the conservatory restaurant and terrace. Typical offerings: radicchio and pear salad, salt-baked beetroot, walnut and labneh cheese balls; chargrilled Gloucestershire Old Spot pork chop, smoked apple ketchup, thrice-cooked chips. In the walled garden, the outdoor kitchen fires up for a summer cook-out. Well-priced, modern bedrooms are supplied with an espresso machine and home-baked cookies. ‘Our ground-floor room had noise from the guests above, but was adequate otherwise.’ More than adequate: the fruit, cereal and ‘tasty local bread’ at breakfast.

Guest comments

'Magnificent location, near Richmond Park, transport and convenient to Heathrow. A busy residential pub, school coffees in the morning, great food and pub atmosphere at night. Breakfast great, local breads fruit cereal coffee, etc. Rooms downstairs noisy if people staying above but certainly adequate. Loved the feel of the place; staff excellent.
