Slightly more eclectic is Moon and Star, a gift shop. Their products are sourced from around the world and include silver jewellery, semi-precious stones, body-piercing jewellery, hand painted wine glasses, ceramics, candles, incense and bags.
Now back to the serious stuff: food and drink. You can slurp an ice cream at Gelateria Danieli where flavours range from amaretto to yogurt and plum. Sadly there is no zabaglione as yet, so they can't claim to cater for all tastes from A-Z. They also make ice cream cakes to take away for those special occasions when nothing else will do.
If your appetite isn't huge you could pop into the Tea Cup for one of their delicious homemade sandwiches. Alternatively if you can't bear to walk past the display of cakes as you enter the shop, you might treat yourself to a slice of cake, or a cream tea. All can be washed down with a choice of teas or coffees supplied by Rosie & Java round the corner in Paved Court.
Finally if you want a proper pub meal, washed down with real ale, drag yourself off to The Britannia. It's only right that there should be a pub in Brewers Lane and the Britannia boasts a regularly changing menu of lunch and dinner dishes that include fish and meat smoked on the premises.
You could extend this to a mini pub crawl, and sample the ales at two further pubs round the corner on the Green. The Cricketers is one of the Greene King group, and is named after the traditional game that was played on Richmond Green before and during the eighteenth century
and the Prince's Head serves beers served by the local Fuller's brewery in Chiswick.
If you're sitting outside the Prince's Head sipping your pint and gazing across at Richmond Green you might be interested to learn that royalty would once have been in residence in Richmond. Charles I brought his court to Richmond Palace in 1625. Sadly this building no longer exists and the Green is now surrounded by Georgian and Victorian properties. However that doesn't stop it being an extremely desirable area of south London, with fine shopping and of course the beautiful River Thames winding its way back into London and out further into Surrey.
