Richmond Palace was a royal residence on the River Thames in England which stood in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Situated in what was then rural Surrey, it lay upstream and on the opposite bank from the Palace of Westminster, which was located nine miles (14 km) to the north-east. It was erected about 1501 by Henry VII of England, formerly known as the Earl of Richmond, in honour of which the manor of Sheen had recently been renamed "Richmond". Richmond Palace therefore replaced Shene Palace, the latter palace being itself built on the site of an earlier manor house which had been appropriated by Edward I in 1299 and which was subsequently used by his next three direct descendants before it fell into disrepair.
In 1500, a year before the construction of the new Richmond Palace began, the name of the town of Sheen, which had grown up around the royal manor, was changed to "Richmond" by command of Henry VII. However, both names, Sheen and Richmond, continue to be used, not without scope for confusion. Curiously, today's districts of East Sheen and North Sheen, now under the administrative control of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, were never in ancient times within the manor of Sheen, but were rather developed during the 19th and 20th centuries in parts of the adjoining manor and parish of Mortlake. Richmond remained part of the County of Surrey until the mid-1960s, when it was absorbed by the expansion of Greater London.

Cute place with beautiful flowers and small beer garden. Very popular amongst the locals for dinner, it gets packed pretty quickly over weekends. Chilled vibe outside for having a drink, you can bring your pooch along as well

Nice little tucked away place with outdoor seating at the back. Looks quite popular with the locals as it was quite busy with diners. Very friendly staff. We didn't have a meal there but would definitely like to go back to try it out.

Very nice little pub, slightly off the beaten track, with pleasant and attentive staff. Decent food if on the expensive side. Hard to define but a really nice atmosphere. Sort of old school whilst being warm, bright and friendly. Probably best to book if you're eating. A very cosy setting with a pocket sized garden. Train line is right behind pub but somehow that doesn't matter. They just rumble by. Well worth a visit.

A nice pub with friendly staff and good food. It mostly locals in the pub and the atmosphere is good. It is a small pub but there is a garden as well. It is a very short walk from the river.

Very mixed experience. I have been here three times over the last few years, and it goes from good to bad. Nice place, good environment, okaysh food, below average service. Maybe it depends on the day. Will give them a try, but only for a drink, if pass by.
