Whether it is a traditional Christmas dinner, an informal drinks reception or a festive catch up with friends, colleagues, family or even a table for two, we’ve got your Christmas party all wrapped up in Richmond’s most historic and traditional pub.

From our mouth-watering menus, two roaring fires, cosy bookable areas, the friendliest team in Richmond and our wide array of festive tipples – be them mulled, pulled or poured; you are going to want to spend Christmas with us.

From start to finish a fantastic experience. Friendly, responsive staff before the day and wonderful service on the day. 24 people booked in for an annual family Xmas party and The Old Ship will now be our first choice every year. Thank you to all of the staff there, you made the day a real joy!


As always, our Christmas Lunch was handled superbly by the team at The Old Ship. Food delicious, served with a smile and allowances made for the noise our party always makes.


We had our work Christmas Party for 33 people at the Old Ship and had a fantastic time. The staff could not have been more helpful, the food was amazing and it could not have gone any better. I have organised many of our staff Christmas Party's and this has been by far the best. Thank you to all the staff on the night for all your hard work everyone had a great time....


Lovely old building with lots of character. My husband and I had our Christmas day lunch upstairs in the restaurant. The food was very good and the staff were very efficient and friendly. Great atmosphere to celebrate the special day.
