A pretty solid bar. Itís in the cellar and certainly has a cavernous feel to it. Great selection of beers across cask, keg and in bottle. Lots of good UK breweries represented on tap. Not a lot of stuff for the really hardcore craft head/scooper, but itís a solid range. Just OK prices across the board. Friendly service. Pretty convenient location, a little under 10 minutes from the Richmond tube station.

An underground bar/ restaurant, collection of mainly British bottled beers, a bit pricey.

As much a restaurant as a pub, doing some great food at very reasonable prices. Decent selection as well and a lovely ambiance.

This place tends to be very very quiet whenever I go in. Iím often outnumbered by staff which is a bit disconcerting. I went when they did the ribs and beer deal (Iím not sure if they still do this) which was good value in comparison to their standard prices. It also attracted more people which was better for the atmosphere! Itís a little pricey and their beers arenít really special enough to warrant that. Overall, itís a decent place.

Visited on Sat 29th June í13. We reserved a table for 4 with friends. All went simmingly in this respect and our original booking was easily moved to a íless popularí area which was fine from our POV as the original table was taken from 7pm. 10 or so tap craft efforts, one cask GD - Upham Punter ... skip that twiggy rubbish many thanks ! Keg range included Mikkeller, Brew Dog and Hop Studio, plus many more. Nothing too exciting but a good kick up the arse to the RMD scene and the many boring cask only safe bet bars that have existed thus far serving solely Fullers and Youngs and if youíre a lucky boy or girl perhaps the íBar !!! The bottled range numbers around 100 or so, decent picks but nothing particularly rare when lined up with the Clondon big boys in the craft beer bar rankings. That said, I managed to rate BD Abstrakt AB 08 & 11 in my visit so this is no shit list of bottles let it be said !!! Prices marry rarity mind! The bar itself is as an underground cellar affair, below street level approx 7/8 mins walk from RMD BR/tube, easily missed. Central bar then steps down to a lower level area. Not much in the way of natural lighting. Service was fine although the staff werenít overly knowledgeable of their wares ! Food was really good, prompt service, hot and fresh the home made pork scratchings were top draw ! Overall - best place to visit in Richmond beyond the usual Youngs/Fullers offerings ... by a long way. The 100 or so bottled offerings will likely feature something for everyone in terms of a new rate ... unless your name is Jan perhaps :)

Below pavement level on Hill Street is like a cramped cellar bar offering several craft bottles and keg beers and just 2 cask ales, the latter only on stillage, which in itself can be hit and miss - once a Scottish ale had just been tapped and was excellent and quite lively, other times the beer feels old and flat/no head etc. Am told the food is good quality (with Richmond prices to match!)

West London finally gets a craft beer bar to match the rake, Euston tap etc!!! The selctiion of keg, cask and bottles is great with the world greats from both hemispheres reprented. Even better was the keg selection inc brewer such as Magic Rock and Buxton. Just go and enjoy!!

A basement bar thatís sadly easy to miss from the street! Nice place, small comfy bar seating area at the front, large restaurant at the back. Up to 12 keg craft/foreign beers, two cask ales, extensive bottle list is Belgian-dominated but also has numerous interesting US, English and Scottish examples (not just Brewdog!!), plus rarities from elsewhere.
