Went here twice in the same week. First time had the fish and chips - huge! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Second time had the sausage and mash. Sausages and gravy were lovely, but the mash was lumpy - a big no no in my book. Shame.

So much choice in Richmond but this place caught the eye and so glad it did. Excellent food, drink and atmosphere. Seems a shade expensive but inside the M25 is a different world so probably about average for the smoke. Would revisit!

This is a great pub. Centrally located, you can watch the world go by whilst enjoying good beer. Sadly, this time, the Wild Boar Scotch Eggs had vanished from the menu. What a pity; they were brilliant! However, the beer and service remain excellent. Much though it pained me as a Scot, the Twickenham Grandstand beer was excellent.

Great pub with loads of atmosphere,real ales and food.We ate there before England rugby international and had fish and chips,which were of good quality and plenty of it.One of our party decided he didn't like the skin left on his fish.The staff arranged a free replacement,which was completely unexpected.We would thoroughly recommend the Old Ship and their service.

this bar was nice and cosy with the real pub atmosphere - the service was ok but nothing special - the beer was fine - if we are in the area again then yes this is a very atmospheric little pub right in the centre of richmond

larger than it looks from outside but nice cosy Youngs pub. Central and worth a visit. Download the Youngs app and get a free drink.

in a town full of pubs (seems to be one down every side street!) The Ship competes very well; it has welcoming staff, nice decor and excellent beer and wine by the glass. with its central location it is an easy choice for shoppers

As a long time visitor to the Ship I was sceptical about the refurb and push on good quality food but I have to say the changes have worked out great. So cosy now and the local feel to this place has not diminished. A place where most would feel comfortable and the current crop of staff are spot on... More
