The Red Cow Description

One of Richmond-Upon-Thames’ oldest public houses, The Red Cow has been serving the local community for generations.

Tom and Carmel Dillon have taken great care in keeping all the features and atmosphere of their traditional pub, while introducing comfortable accommodation, an ever-changing menu of home-cooked food and lively entertainment.

If you’re visiting Richmond you’ll always find a warm welcome at The Cow, so why not call in for a drink, a meal or even stay with us? Wherever you’re from we’re sure you’ll feel at home – at the bar you’re likely to find yourself chatting to someone born

across the road, or someone born on the other side of the world. One visit and you’ll be a ‘local’ too!

Wine & Beer Young’s Brewery, just five miles away, has a long association with many pubs around Richmond. The Red Cow began taking delivery of Young’s barrels and bottles in the 1830’s and their award-winning beers - Young’s Ordinary and Special - along with Young’s Pilsner lager can be ordered over the bar right now. Young’s seasonal beers include Waggledance (a summer favourite) and for chilly winter months a Winter Warmer and a place by the roaring fire go down well.

History Well, The Red Cow’s has been around for well over 200 years. Cattle grazed on this marshy edge of town until the end of the 18th century. All moved on, but one prized red cow lives to this day as she gave her name to this inn built at Marsh Gate.

When Queen Victoria came to the throne the Young family bought the Cow, installing a fine carved wood and gilded-glass central bar stocked with celebrated ales from their Wandsworth Brewery. The area soon earned a dubious reputation though - the Red Cow being renown as a haunt of ‘thieves and vagabonds’. This place of dark deeds, with its tiny public and private rooms – the ‘snuff bar’, ‘jug and bottle’ and ‘4 ale room’ – that typified old English pubs has long gone, but the original bar and Young’s bitters live on to this day.

Thankfully though, the locals are a lot more friendly!

“Best local pub in Richmond. It's a proper pub with friendly bar staff and great value pub food. Richmond has been taken over by theme pubs with expensive eats and drinks - the Red Cow has thankfully escaped.”

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
