|We have been going to the Richard I on and off for about 25 years and despite having to travel over from East London currently try to visit the pub once or twice a month. We did have misgivings when told that Young's were extensively refurbishing the premises, that the result would be yet another ruined pub.As I think I've commented previously - we were wrong. I fail to understand why certain customers now have a problem with the place. Yes, they've effectively built a restaurant at the back which has reduced the size of the garden, but as far as I can see the bar areas are the same size as they always were. Personally I don't much like the "battleship grey" colour scheme but what do I know? What I DO know is that the quality and choice of the five (?) real ales is always excellent - you'd have to look very hard to find a better pint of "Ordinary". If you prefer keg beers they always have an imaginative range. And finally, the service is always friendly and efficient. Still, there's no pleasing some people...|

|Totally agree with the comments below. This used to be a great pub.|
Youngs have also destroyed The Clockhouse by Peckham Rye Park.

|Ths was one of my favourite pubs anywhere and had a fantastic front bar. The building is now unrecognisable , Youngs having virtually destroyed everything that made it enjoyable to visit in order to creat anothe gastro. I certainly wont be visiting again.|
In the last year three of my favourite pubs, the Richard 1, the Coborn in Mile End & the Bulls Head in Barnes (all Young's) have all been turned into gastro's with their internal architecture ripped out.
Youngs pulled out of brewing a few years ago, their sole interest pubs these days seems to be in selling food. Where will the Youngs tour of pub destruction arrive next.
