The Rifleman was closed for a while. But it has re-opened and now stocks a good range of Twickenham Brewery beers. Young's Ordinary & Butcombe Original are regulars, alongside Twickenham Naked Ladies. The other 3 ales were also from Twickenham - Redhead, Winter Star & American Nut Brown. We had to wait for the latter to be changed. But it wasn't too long a wait. There was no sign of a real cider. The interior of the pub is unchanged. It's a single, cosy room. Sport is still shown on the TV. Cricket was on yesterday. Still a fairly decent stop.

This old, small back street pub has thankfully survived despite being tucked away down a side street. It’s limited choice of real ales are always good and it was nearly always busy. It never served food (apart from snacks and toasties) and this was fine. It had TV screens placed high up for major sports events but they were never intrusive.
Until quite recently the pub was run by a friendly land lord and land lady who were always a presence in the bar who remembered and welcomed you. It was always a pleasure to visit.
A couple of weeks ago my partner and I decided to go there for a pre Sunday lunch drink. We expected the pub to to busy and jolly.
We arrived at 1.30 to find there was just one customer at the bar. The young lady bar person served us and was very nice and friendly. I enquired why it was so unexpected quiet. She said it was because the football match hadn’t started yet and it would get busier.
There are several screens in the pub and they were all blaring out random sports events plus music playing.
Later maybe another six people came in and despite the match now being on I wasn’t aware anyone was watching.
We felt disappointed that this local had appeared to have lost its cozy, chatty and friendly (also extremely popular and busy) atmosphere. It would be sad for it to become another statistic.

Nice, little pub down a residential back street. We came here to watch the football, whilst still looking for some decent ales. The Rifleman appeared to fit the bill. It is the current Richmond & Hounslow CAMRA pub of the year. But I was actually a little disappointed. 5 of the ales are on permanently and there is a 6th ale, which is a guest. The guest was Twickenham Naked Ladies. The 5 regulars were Timothy Taylor Landlord, Dark Star Hophead, Twickenham Redhead, Youngs Bitter & Butcombe Bitter. I had the Redhead which was ok. But I do prefer a real cider or a dark beer. So the drinks range felt a bit limited to me, especially after just coming from the Sussex Arms with its fabulous ale and cider selection. So overall a nice pub, that suited our needs. But not as good as I was hoping.

Very traditional small pub with a lovely and aromatic garden out the back. Doesn't open until 2pm weekdays - I was nearly caught out by this. Several beers on pump, of which I had Ringwood Bitter. For whatever reason several reviewers have a down on this pub but I don't know why. Sat in the garden and had a pint which was nice.

The woman that runs this pub sits at the bar each night getting pissed, whats the point of this woman's role here? This was once the best pub in Twickenham only now to be run by a tart
