Orange Tree Review

Book a table at Orange Tree

Top 10 things to know about The Orange Tree:

1) Not many pubs are cosy and hospitable enough to make you want to linger long past closing time. The Orange Tree in Richmond not only makes you want to stay indefinitely, but also actually allows you to do so thanks to its purpose-built hotel rooms.

2) Conveniently placed on the high street between Richmond Station and Richmond Park, The Orange Tree is also not far removed from Twickenham Stadium either, which accounts for the large rugby-mad contingent that passes through its doors on match days.

3) In every other respect, The Orange Tree is an effortlessly elegant gastro pub with an eye-catching stained glass exterior and patio looking onto Kew Road.

4) The bustling ground floor bar is luxurious yet accommodating, with a black and white tiled floor, leather sofas and quirky accessories. As an informal hang-out it is obviously very popular among locals, rugby or not.

5) Towards the back of the room, The Orange Tree’s small dining area is equally cosy, lined with glossy prints, floral-print chairs, and quirky touches such as a chandelier made from beer bottles (and – for some reason – a framed pair of secateurs).

6) The menu is made up of hearty English fare, with the occasional eyebrow-raising twist. Specials include lamb in chorizo and bean stew - rib-sticking and devilishly tasty – and give way to tart and refreshing desserts like apple and blackberry crumble, or a tasting platter of “all things orange”.

7) The venue’s considerable drinks selection is exemplified by the huge cage showing off endless rows of fine wines in the basement– surely another reason to linger a little longer than usual!

8) Overall the atmosphere and décor are tasteful, with a minimum of pretension and low-key music and chatter throughout the building. The clientele is markedly middle-class, with a profusion of couples.

9) Thirteen cosy, self-contained hotel rooms above the bar are available with all mod cons and the comfiest beds money can buy – a crucial detail after a hard day’s rugby, eating and drinking.

10) The all-round high-quality experience offered by The Orange Tree ensures it should be a firm local favourite for many years to come. It’s a long way from Central London, but you can stay forever if you like…

“The pub has recently undergone a massive revamp. It has been tastefully decorated and now has a great atmosphere. There are new staff who are enthusiastic and eager to please. Food has become a greater focus and is delicious and beautifully presented. You can have a great night at "The Orange Tree" and we would highly recommend people get there. Great value!!”

“Hugely overrated bar. Food is average, as is the bar staff. Due to the layout this bar also has no atmosphere. Sorry....but I wouldn''t bother.”
