Last year we went to the Old Ship for Christmas Lunch. It was very good, which is why we booked this year. Unfortunately, the meal was quite a disappointment and we will certainly not re-book next year and would be most reluctant to advise anyone else to do so. We ordered roast beef as the main course. Instead, what we got was a suet pudding with a few bits of tough stewing beef inside. By no stretch of the imagination was this roast beef. It contravened trade description. I found it rather distasteful and, as I would hardly ever eat something like this, left most of it. The wine was v.poor for the price - a glass of rioja was actually bubbling. I don't know if this was because it was kept near heat and was re-fermenting. I had assumed that I had paid the full cost when I booked. However, we had to pay a not inconsiderable service charge when we left. Not a Christmas lunch to enjoy! Visited Old Ship Richmond on 2017-12-25

Hi Patricia, I'm so surprised to receive your feedback. just wished you had mentioned at the time of your visit so we could have dealt with the points raised. The menu description for the only beef dish was: slow cooked beef, star anise & parsnip SUET PUDDING and I really cannot understand where's the confusion with roast beef from? The wine you have ordered is one of our best sellers, but we would have happily changed it if you had mentioned it wasn't up to your liking at the time. The service charge was also mentioned on the menu and was completely discretionary. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. Please feel free to call me directly so I can see what we can do to encourage you to return. Best regards, Zuza

Visited for lunch prior to the rugby at Twickenham. One of our fave places in Richmond - always great food & service. Small niggles - shame stopped serving the Scotch Egg's & Peroni but still a great, traditional pub :o) Visited Old Ship Richmond on 2017-11-11

Thank you for making my Mum's 60th party such a fantastic night! All the staff were really helpful and friendly and did everything they could to make our experience pleasant and enjoyable. My mum and all our guests had a brilliant night. The space itself was also perfect for us - close to a bar and the toilets, as well as being mostly cut off from the rest of the pub.

Is it possible to leave 0 stars? My boyfriend and I had a table booked for 7:15 and arrived early at 6:14/6:30 for a drink. We entered and the girl at the bar on the way in (dark hair, dark lipstick) was so rude that we felt too uncomfortable to stay. We left and didn't have our dinner. For the prices this place charges per course, you don't expect the service to be so bad that you don't even stay to order. We went to Cote Brasserie instead and had a 3 course dinner for the same price a main would have been here... and the service was fantastic. Visited Old Ship Richmond on 2017-01-27

Fantastic venue! Booked a space here for 30 people and the staff were terrific, had a really nice big space, kind of like our own private function and staff helped us keep area just for our party and were really accommodating with food and drinks.

Very good ambience, great and friendly manager as well as calm cosy atmosphere. Only downside to it was the bartendress who's normally upstairs was particularly unpleasant and could easily come across as rude at times. Apart from that though great visit once again :) Visited Old Ship Richmond on 2016-12-31

We came with someone who is Coeliac. They called and email before our visit but couldn't get hold of anyone to check if the menu was Coeliac friendly. When ordering at the bar we were told that there wasn't anything on the menu my friend would be able to eat and they were very unhelpful in trying to find a resolution. At least they were able to let her order a take away and eat it with the rest of us. I have subsequently discovered that every establishment serving food has to offer a Coeliac alternative. Finally our mains arrived with our starters despite asking for them to arrive at different times. Having said all of that its a lovely pub and the food was decent.

I had Christmas lunch at the Old Ship Richmond. The table was well prepared with a lit candle. The atmosphere in the room was Christmassy and the waiters were polite. Lunch unfortunately was mediocre. Starter and main were ok. Dishes that can be done quickly in high numbers nothing to write home about. Desserts were really poor, poor quality and cheap look too. The custard cream tasted as made from ready powder and the apple crumble was like mushy fruits for babies with as little crumble as possible (really not good). I told the waitress it was not good at all, she could not be bothered. Just to mention the sorbet, that was not a sorbet that was lemon icecream. What a cheat! I am sure nobody will take any notice of these comments. Any big caterer only care about cheap ingredients and good profit margins. Visited Old Ship Richmond on 2016-12-25

As regular Christmas visitors to The Old Ship we applaud the improvements to the upstairs bar area. This year's food was well received by the group as the best for some time.
