A pleasant pub lunch with playground
A couple of times recently, after we've been out and about in Richmond town centre, myself, my husband and our two children have wandered along to The White Horse pub for Sunday lunch.

The family pub is situated about a 5 minute walk from the centre of town in a quiet back street, and its friendly ambience is noticeable from the moment you step inside.

Me and my husband are both vegan and they have a really tasty (and healthy) plant-based main on their menu of chargrilled broccoli, quinoa, green olives, almonds and tahini dressing, priced at 12.50, which I've had twice now.

On our most recent visit, my hubby Tom, opted for the mezze sharing platter (17.50) which - with the removal of feta - was also vegan.

The menu is full of options for meat eaters and veggies alike, with pub classics such as beef burger and chips (11.50), battered haddock and chips (13.50) and sirloin steak and chips (27) no doubt proving popular choices. On a Sunday, they have a range of roasts available, starting from 16 for chicken, as well as vegetarian butternut squash and feta wellington priced at 14. All the roasts are served with cauliflower cheese, sticky red cabbage, honey roast carrots, and swede puree.

Kids options include sausage and mash, burger and chips, battered haddock and chips, or linguine pasta with pesto, all priced at 7. A soft drink is an extra 1, and ice cream an extra 2.50.

Adults can choose from sweet treats such as treacle tart with vanilla ice cream or banoffee sundae. Desserts start at 6.50. The extensive menu also has a range of starters, bar snacks, sides and sandwiches. To view the full menu visit the website.

The White Horse has a fabulous outdoor seating and dining area for sunny days and, perhaps the most appealing feature (if you have young kids anyway), is that there is a gate from the outdoor area leading straight into a huge outdoor playground. So, after the kids have sat still for as long as they possibly can (colouring sheets and crayons do buy a bit of time) they can be unleashed to let off steam.

Located on Worple Way, The White Horse is moments away from the main road linking East Sheen and Richmond, so it is easily accessible by public bus, mainline train, car, or on foot.
