The Marlborough

The Marlborough

This pub has been voted by our readers as one of the best in Richmond. See the full list of winners here.

The Marlborough's one of those pubs blessed with comfy leather sofas and armchairs, with tasteful horticultural wallpaper and a handsome dining room. It feels relaxed whether you're there for the superior British cuisine or just for drinks. First among the many attractions of this Young's pub is the superb and sizeable beer garden, among the best in London. Even on cold days, the narrow courtyard area allows outdoor seating, with heaters and parasols. The beer selection is competent if nothing special — Young's, Bombardier and a guest ale, but the wine list is excellent, with 13 each of white and red.

If your idea of a great beer garden experience is having hordes of unsupervised children screaming and running in circles around your table while mummy and her friend get drunk then this is for you. Even seen pre-teen kids ordering wine top-ups for their parents at the bar. Shocking place.


To their credit they recently sectioned off an adult only section in the garden. Shame when I went to use it last night it was taken over by a large group and their hoard of screaming children. It was like watching Lord of the Flies. Not content with their section the kids spent the evening running around and using scooters up and down the paths. No matter how unruly the kids got - knocking over chairs, jumping on tables and throwing sticks around neither the staff or the parents cared.
