About the Pub

This is a large and busy pub close to Richmond Station. With an interesting and complex layout there are plenty of seats and tables to find in a variety of settings. The majority of tables in the front area are of a butcher-block style with stools. A small raised area can be reached up a few steps. Around the walls – painted dark green - are a variety of pictures depicting famous local sites of interest. At the back is a larger area with a small corner bar and doors to a small side patio.

The pub was known in 1855 as The Railway Hotel and until recently was known as O'Neill's. In Oct/Nov 2014 it was closed for an extensive refurbishment and reopened as a Nicholson's style pub serving a wide range of cask ale from a variety of independent breweries. Their house beer is Nicholson's Pale Ale (4% ABV) brewed by St. Austell. The cask guest beers change frequently. Please note a notice behind the main bar; ‘Please ask for a top-up’ if you prefer your beer without a traditional head. A comprehensive menu of food is available. Membership of the Hop-Circle cask-ale club (see their website for details) can receive exclusive discounts and offers using their smart mobile phone after the free app has been installed and registered. There is also 10% discount using the Nicholson's Cask Ale Club membership card. A new weekly pub quiz every Thursday at 8pm.
