Richard I is an old-school Greenwich pub that can trace its roots back to the early 1920s. Beautifully decorated and offering its visitors a culinary experience that's worthy of competing with the best, it's become a favourite spot for neighbours and locals alike.

Sticking to tradition, the cosy and quaint atmosphere can't be found in most of the other pubs in Greenwich that have transformed over the years. A hidden gem on a quiet side street, it's full of wooden tables and benches with a traditional pub look. The walls never sit still, and are brought to life by a smattering of over-reaching plants, colourful antiques and a few vintage photos. Made up of two areas, they have a saloon which offers a smarter dining area and then the main public bar area. But during the summer months, on the rare occasion that the sun does make an appearance, the venue's patio and idyllic garden is the only place to be. Signposted by its colourful furniture, it's ideal for a few after work drinks or those lazy weekends with the family.

With a passion for good beer, the pub maintains the highest standard and is renowned for it's traditional Young's real ales. Alongside the diverse drinks list, there are plenty of hearty British meals to tuck into. Expect to find succulent steaks, condiment filled burgers and delicious roast dishes aplenty here.

Great service and ambiance in the restaurant. Had the roast chicken which was unfortunately on the dry side. visited Richard The First on 19 Nov 2017

This was a very disappointing experience. I came for Sunday lunch with my parents and we all ordered the Roast beef. I was assured the meat is cooked and carved onsite but I'm not convinced if I'm honest - it was quite watery and felt like it was reheated. The roast potatoes were extremely dry and seemed like they had been sitting out for hours - for a £17 price tag, to be honest I expected a lot better. The service was good and the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice but the food really let it down. visited Richard The First on 19 Nov 2017
