Prince's Head, TW9 1LX

Fuller's pub in Richmond. It overlooks Richmond Green, and has plenty of outdoor seating.

The entrance doors still bear frosted glass directing customers to the "Public Bar" and "Saloon Bar", though the inside has been knocked through to form an open-plan space wrapped around a central bar. High tables have been installed in the "Public" side, while the "Saloon" side has normal-height tables in a variety of shapes, flanked by upright chairs and banquette seating. Around the back of the bar are smaller rooms set out for dining, with tables ready-laid with napkins and cutlery; a sign warns that one must wait to be seated here.

Decor is traditional, with lots of wood panelling, a low ceiling, and a wood floor covered here and there with patterned rugs. Flowers sit in small glass bottles on the tables, and there's at least one stained-glass room divider.

Kake visited on a Monday early evening in July 2019. There were quite a few people in when I arrived a little before 5:30pm, with many of the outside tables taken too, though I managed to find a table inside. Music was playing, not too loud, and there was a pleasant buzz of conversation. Tennis was showing on the flatscreens with the sound off.

There were four real ales on: London Pride, ESB, Oliver's Island, and Dark Star Partridge. They also had Fuller's Lime Goze on keg. A pint of lime and soda was £1.10.

According to the Prince's Head website as of July 2019, food is served noon-10pm Mon-Sat and noon-9pm Sun.

Accessibility: A step to get in.
