Over the years Richmond has had a large number of public houses. Some are still fondly remembered, others now almost forgotten. A wide range of historic pubs remains to delight us today. The town also once had its own breweries. Richard’s talk will cover a selection of the most interesting, and includes many illustrations of pubs past and present.
