Richard 1st Review

Top 10 things you need to know about the Richard 1st pub:

1) The Richard 1st is a traditional British gastro pub up on Royal Hill - a quaint little street that’s within walking distance of the main attractions in Greenwich while remaining removed from the bustle of the town centre.

2) Past the appealing black and white exterior, the main bar is separated into two sizeable areas with a selection of booths, sofas and bar stools for communal merriment.

3) Further towards the back is the venue’s newly-renovated and augmented conservatory, which serves as the dining room and genuinely impresses with vast expanses of glass, rustic stone walls, low tables and plenty of wood.

4) Among the quirky flourishes in the décor are pot plants, wicker lampshades, stencilled slogans, rustic picture frames and blackboards displaying the specials – all of which practically scream homeliness and accessibility, not to mention a lovely spot for lunch or dinner.

5) Menus and condiments are situated in mini crates on each table, while bookings are literally written on the side of leather-bound books in chalk. Spoken word recitals play over the speakers in the lavatories – clearly this is not your usual, run-of-the-mill local.

6) Despite the recent overhaul, there’s still room out back for an ample beer garden and patio, with yet more greenery and flowers; ideal for the summer months.

7) The staff are unswervingly friendly and eager to provide samples of new additions to the drinks menu. Events such as quiz nights and acoustic Sundays have built up a regular local following and the day-to-day soundtrack isn’t too bad either.

8) The food at the Richard 1st is excellent British fare; try the beef dripping chips and fennel-crusted squid to set you up for a main course of smoked lamb and burnt leek shepherd’s pie. Elsewhere, excellent dishes of steak or fresh fish can be complemented nicely by an unusual gooseberry and elderflower pannacotta to finish.

9) This being Greenwich, Meantime lager is proudly represented at the bar along with other tasty craft beers, ciders and a see-through cupboard filled to the brim with vintage bottles of wine.

10) All things considered, it is definitely worth straying from the beaten Greenwich path of observatories and tall ships to sample the friendly, inviting atmosphere of the Richard 1st pub.
