The Richmond Arms Pub Editor’s Pick
By day, the white stucco and dark-brown mock Tudor timbers of The Richmond Arms make it look like the Galleria-area pub got lost on its way to the Renaissance Festival. By night, however, the surfeit of British expats could have you wondering whether you’re the one who got lost. The menu of classic pub favorites includes our favorite Cornish pasty in Houston, with a crispy crust drowned in a pint of brown gravy, not to mention the sturdiest Scotch eggs around, made even better with lashings of Branston Pickle and Coleman’s mustard. The bar offers plenty of popular British ales on draft, from Boddingtons to Bass, but also an extensive selection of local craft beers and excellent cask offerings. Expect huge crowds on Saturday and Sunday mornings, when English Premier League matches are televised live and the pub opens early, offering a full English breakfast.
