Reviews - The Dukes Head

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
42 The Vineyard, , , Richmond, TW10 6AZ
Welcome to the Duke’s Head. This is a small, friendly, traditional English Inn located in a quiet residential area on the slopes of Richmond Hill, with a history that dates back to Victorian times. The inn is located within walking distance of Kew Gardens and Twickenham Rugby Stadium, and close to Richmond Station, providing easy links into Central London. Other places of interest close by include Thorpe Park, Hampton Court Palace, Wimbledon and Chessington World Of Adventures. The inn lies on the edge of historic Richmond Upon Thames, a favourite retreat of royalty, the rich and the famous for hundreds of years. The River Thames runs through the heart of the town, and the area offers beautiful royal parks and historic houses, theatres, museums and galleries rich with exhibits, plus numerous shops and restaurants. Resident guests are served a hearty English breakfast every morning - although host Mairead does sometimes give it a bit of an Irish flavour. Later on in the day, reasonably priced meals are available, lunch and evening every day, and at weekends, food is served all day until 8pm. The Dalton family takes great pride in the standards of service and facilities - the pub has even won the "Richmond in Bloom" competition several times.

Considerate and accommodating
I arrived late to check in and it was okay. I was allowed to leave my car for the day in their car park and arrived later than agree to collect it. They were very understanding and again it was okay. I will stay there again as it was excellent customer service on their part.
The room was comfortable too. All good. I didn't have time for breakfast in the morning so can't comment on that..

A little gem
Lovely area, had 3 full sized beds in our room. Lovely pub, food looked really good, but went into Richmond for food, lots of places to eat, or go for a drink, coffee, shop etc. Richmond is easy to get to and from the pub. Owners were very friendly, you can return late if you wish, you have a back door key, if it's going to be after 1am. Loved it, would definitely recommend it.

Cheap (for Richmond) and Cheerful
Staff were friendly and helpful but the room was a bit tired and basic, and as the breakfast was served in the pub, not the cleanest dining environment

Breakfast + Planes
While nothing wrong with the quality, if you don't like beans, mushrooms and tomatoes, it leaves your breakfast plate a bit sparse.
Like almost anywhere around Richmond, you'll get a 5.30 wake up call from airplanes on approach to Heathrow.

Good solid B+B, excellent value.
The only negative was the shower which was woeful. No power whatsoever.
