Welcome to the best riverside pub in Richmond

Serving Young’s fine ales since 1869 and built in 1780 The White Cross is a piece of local history and home to the famous Richmond riverside sunsets.

Located right on the banks of the Thames, no visit to Richmond is complete without a visit to ‘The Cross.’ Whether you are after lunch on the Thames (or sometimes in it!), sundowners at sunset, a Sunday roast with loved ones or a pint of Young’s Original to watch the rugby, we’ve got you covered.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail, impeccable customer service and strive to offer the very best of British classics and homemade food using only the very best of seasonal British ingredients.

So, whether you’re in need of somewhere to recharge after a long day, or a refuel after a walk along the river, pop in and let us take care of the rest.

It’s officially that belt-loosening, bottle-popping and cracker-pulling time of year. Whether you are feasting with loved ones, sipping from the get go with colleagues after work or popping magnums at the weekend with pals, we’ve got your Christmas covered.

Simon and the team cannot wait to welcome you.

Tis the season to shindig

We’re counting down the days till we see those trees adorned with more glitter than a disco ball, our open fires roaring loudly and the epic symphony of crackers poppin’ like holiday confetti cannons in the air—music to our ears!

We’re kinda a big deal in throwing Christmas shindigs on the Richmond Riviera (Santa himself RSVP’s to us!) and we’ve got the inside scoop on what makes the North Pole crew jelly. Our party planning is already in full-blown festive mode, and our calendar’s filling up faster than a little one unwrapping presents.

So don’t be left out in the cold, grab your calendar, pencil us in, and let’s jingle bell rock together this Christmas.

Toastie Shack

Our Toastie Shack is the best thing since sliced bread, and we’re not loafing around! Our toasties are jam-packed with fillings that’ll warm the soul when the weather turns. Try our seasonal sensations like award-winning Pitchfork Cheddar with artichoke pesto and caramelised onion chutney or for the meat lovers, our tender pulled ox cheek with Shropshire blue cheese and chutney is a certified crowd pleaser.

Terrace Drinks

The colder months are finally upon us but it’s still the time to head to your favourite riverside local and enjoy Richmond’s best view of the sunset with us. Even though the weather has turned we’re still Richmond’s home for for high tides and high vibes. With our fully stocked outside bar, wrap up warm and splash on over to us and soak in all that Richmond has to offer.
