Our History

From haunted family home to school to hotel, The Richmond Inn as we know and love it has seen a few iterations over its 170-year history.

Originally built in 1840, it didn’t become a hotel until 1864, when it was called the “Old House at Home”. The business rebranded before being sold at auction in 1876 as The Horse and Jockey Inn. In 1898, The Horse and Jockey was unceremoniously demolished to make way for the Imperial Inn, which had a good innings until 1971, when the Richmond Inn was built. We’ve lovingly refurbished that 1970’s building to bring you the relaxed embodiment of local Australian hospitality at its best, with delicious grub, family fun and your favourite local beers on tap.

Who We Are

We put the fun into family. It’s a tough job being the heart of the local community, but someone has to do it!

Bring your kids, bring your dog, bring your mum and dad, we’ve got them covered! The Richmond Inn boasts the largest beer garden in the area (dog friendly of course), regular entertainment for every age, including several big screens for watching the match and weekend DJ’s. Kids love the Richmond, and we know they can be a handful when you’re just trying to have a glass of wine, so let us feed them for free all day, every day here at everyone’s favourite local.

Our delicious pub grub, a slushie machine, ball pit and fire pits to keep you cozy for all the big games on our outdoor stadium screen all come together to make The Richmond Inn so much more than a pub.

Happy hour comes to Richmond every weekday from 5pm – 7pm with $6 wine, beer and spirits, or fuel your Friday and Saturday boogie with $5 vodka mixers between 8pm and 10pm. Check out our What’s On page for the full lowdown.
