Welcome to the Shaftesbury

With our prime location near Kew gardens and Twickenham stadium, we are the ideal rugby pitstop for a pre match pint or post match wash up for all rugby enthusiasts. At the core of our service lies a deep appreciation for knowledge, which is why we take great care to meticulously pair each of our dishes with our wide selection of wines. If you’re a beer enthusiast, you’ll also find our extensive collection of quality cask ales and wide array of beverages, with superb service to match.

Turning our focus to the main attraction – our mouthwatering, one-more-bite-worthy, seasonal menu that champions British farmers and producers. With a particular emphasis on charred, perfectly grilled meats, our dishes are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palates. From the succulent Barnsley lamb chop to the temptation-tugging West Country Beef T-bone, our menu caters to the most enthusiastic of foodies.

Karolina and the team cannot wait to welcome you.

A Rugby Atmosphere Like No Other

We have a jam-packed lineup of fixtures coming at you this February and March. With our sensational makeover last year, you will enjoy all the enthralling action of the Six Nations like never before. That’s right, we’re talking new menus and new decor while maintaining the same Rugby-loving energy we have always prided ourselves on.  

Richmond’s best Rugby pub is here to show you the most galvanising atmosphere you could only dream of. Whether you’re seeking the perfect pit stop on the way to Twickenham or watching along with us, The Shaftesbury is the place to be for the Six Nations this Spring.

From the smoky, peat-infused terrains of Islay to the rich, bourbon-drenched landscapes of Kentucky, a myriad of exceptional whiskeys awaits, each boasting distinct flavours and character reflective of their origin stories. The perfect ending to your dining experience, join us for a whisky tasting nightcap like no other and find your favourite whisky with us!

Cocktail Season

Love cocktails? So do we! We are the bonafide, undisputed masters of mixology in South West London.

Whether you are joining us for a cocktail on a date night or in need a mid evening pick me up at a party, we will have you Margarita sipping in no time.

Doggy Friendly

We are Richmond’s most doggy-friendly pub where muddy boots and muddy paws are not just tolerated; they are warmly embraced. We extend a friendly paw to both two-legged and four-legged guests, and with our cosy, dog-friendly atmosphere and heated outdoor seating area equipped with doggy treats, we are the perfect place to unwind, and enjoy a well-deserved pint after a muddy adventure.

Unwind With Us

This Winter, there’s something special about plopping down into one of our comfy armchairs, with a glass of a rich, spicy red wine in hand to while away a cosy afternoon with us. With our open fire crackling away, we’ve got the perfect spot for that just-one-more moment. Unwind with us – it’s like your own little escape from the daily grind.
