Richmond’s most loved local

Based in the heart of Richmond High Street, a stone’s throw away from the river or a lovely stroll to Richmond park, The Old Ship is a traditional British pub that is suitable for any occasion.

If you fancy a pre-theatre top notch meal or post cinema pint, the best rugby atmosphere in Richmond, Premiership games on one of our seven Tvs or even our famous Sunday Roast, anything you desire we can do! If you’re as passionate about great British beer, lovely independent spirits (especially gin) & hearty, traditional pub food then sailor, this is the pub for you. Our fires are crackling and our red wines are complex and full bodied, with the warmest and friendliest bar team in Richmond we are the perfect Richmond’s favourite home away from home.

The Six Nations is back and you know where the place to be is for it! We’re welcoming you aboard for each and every hard-hitting fixture all the way throughout February and March. So, join us for an electric atmosphere like no other this side of the river this Spring.

Ian and the team can’t wait to welcome you.

Rugby Fever Is Catching On

The excitement is brewing at the Ship; it’s in our pints, our delicious rustic food and our staff’s ever-growing sporting spirit! You couldn’t be closer to the action unless you were in Twickenham stadium itself. So, if you want to experience the Rugby cauldron of chaos like you were at the live game, there’s no further to look! You don’t want to be the one to miss out on catching Rugby fever this Spring.
