great food and atmosphere – I absolutely love this pub! It never changes and that is so great! So many great beers and such good food and service! This place is the best in the winter because of the warmth and cozyness.
Best place for a real beer! – Great people, excellent atmosphere. Inexpensive drinks. Best place for quiz night. Definitely not a "meat-bar". Chilled clientel that makes you feel extremely relaxed. Weekday nights are a hopping industry crowd. Only bad thing about this place and its minor, is rowdy "new" drinkers. Their place should be somewhere else, such as Sam's Boat. But ignore whenever they arrive, they usually don't stick around. Best place to see a soccer match.
A British pub with a Texas soul makes all feel welcome. – The Scene
English pub meets Texas outdoor dining: darts, soccer and rugby on the big screen TV, plenty of pints, video golf, a cozy patio with long wooden picnic tables and exterior air-conditioning during summer months. Inside offers drinkers a cool, dark atmosphere with spacious tables, comfy booths and several nooks and crannies perfect for a private cocktail. The jukebox is another highlight with diverse sounds ranging from the Beatles to Etta James.
An array of transplanted Brits, Scots and Aussies gather with after-work crowds who enjoy the outdoor patio. Cocktails and wine are available, but don't expect any frozen fruity offerings. In terms of beer, you name it and it's there: from Houston-brewed St. Arnold's to standards like Harp. Typical bar food is anted-up with a great fish-and-chips plate and surprisingly fresh chicken tenders.
Experience a REAL Pub – The Arms is my favorite pub to drink at when I'm in the States. It's a great place to meet people from various Commonwealth nations in Houston on business, and the local British expat community is a good bunch. It does tend to get crowded when there's a good football match on (aka soccer), any night there's a planned event (damn near everynight), and on Friday and Saturday nights when the irregulars cruise in. If you really want to experience the charm of this place, then stop in for a pint (imperial pints! 20 oz!) on a Saturday around lunchtime.
For the Older Crowd – I went with two of my friends, both of whom are 4-10 years older than me (I'm 26) and I felt really bored. There is a relaxed atmosphere and good food, but if you're looking to dance or mingle, this is not the place to go.
UK on Richmond – A lovely spot of Great Britain in Texas. Good beer, good food, and genuine Brit feel to this pub makes one homesick for the UK. Plenty of room and comfort for the real beer fan.
"The Power Of Beer" Clan Speaks – I found this bar to be rather crowded but that is to be expected. The Richmond Arms has a hump day quiz off every week with food/drink prizes as well as cash for the winning teams. The menu is that of an English pub with an american flair and I enjoyed the dish I ordered. Richmond Arms also has a deck out front which allows the overflow of people inside to go outside if they wish. They also have a HUGE beer selection with very many types on tap. If the need to show off trivia knowledge is your cup of tea, the hump day quiz off is good fun and can be profitable. The last time we went there our team "The Power of Beer" won and I paid for my bill with my share of the winnings! Jolly good fun!
NICE AND FUN! – Very good place to meet new people, everybody there was nice and wanted to have fun... perfect for meeting people right after work....
Have a go! – Great place to get a drink and hang out with friends, and make new ones, mostly from the UK, which is great in iteself, as it allowes a person to become more culturally enriched!
I've never had a problem there, always enjoyed the great British atmosphere! Is especially nice when you a meet and Aussie!!!
only decent place on Richmond... – this is a great place to relax and have a good beer with friends. Laid back, dark (but outside seating too), with good food and friendly service. Not to mention, the best jukebox I've seen in this city.
