I celebrated my birthday here on Wednesday and we couldn't have had a better experience. We were made feel welcome as soon as we walked in and were shown to our table. We were offered wine and introduced to the early bird menu and the specials of the day. My friends ordered mussels and I had the pork belly, which was absolutely delightful! We ended up having a few bottles of white wine, which was just perfect. Areally great experience for all of us with outstanding service and extremely delicious food! Would definitely recommend!

Superb. In every aspect. We chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Richmond and were delighted with the food, the service and the setting. We chose the mussels as mains and for dessert the chocolate fondant and the date pudding.

The service was warm and friendly - we felt genuinely welcomed and appreciated as customers - as well as prompt and efficient. The two gents who run the place worked their socks off, but their smiles never waned.

The bill was under €68 including wine, excluding tip, and we found this excellent value for money.

Four of us ate here on Saturday night (June 16th). It was absolutely lovely. Very nice person in charge ( think she may be the owner but not sure ), lovely manner & very friendly. We had the window seat which was great. Very nice food, very enjoyable evening. Thanks.

Thank you very much Seamus for taking the time to rate and review us so positively.
Aundria, the woman managing on the night, is not actually an owner, but her fabulous attitude and professionalism would certainly cause one to think so.We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to rely on such a conscientious, experienced and downright lovely manager.
Long may she stay.

We hope to see you in again on another occasion soon.

Thank you again,

Russell @ Richmond

Fathers' Day trip with four adults (grown up children) and a great early evening dinner. We sampled everything on the menu between us, and all the dishes were fantastic; we had a coeliac dining & this caused no issue at all. Wines very enjoyable and good value. Great service and attention throughout. 10/10.

We ate here as a party of 6, including my sister who is a gluten free-vegan...this can sometimes prove challenging but she got in touch ahead of time and they went out of their way to ensure she had options! She loved it! Service was great, food was just unreal...the slow cooked pork cheek is something everyone needs to try!

Ambience was great, staff so friendly, seating comfortable, wasn’t too loud for our dad who struggles sometimes....we all loved it!

Can’t wait to go back ourselves on a Tuesday for the tasting menu.
