We had a family birthday party, and staff were lovely and accommodating. The food is amazing, different yet gourmet, and appeals to all ages. They even allowed us to bring a special diet cake.

I recently brought my dog to this pub and it’s so well received. One staff member in particular is very friendly and tells us to let our dog go “free range”. I find he is really in tune with the crowd and takes initiative to respond. No name but he is tall with a beard and light brownish hair!

We did the bottomless brunch and it was terrible. The food available as part of the brunch menu was not even close to a meal - small appetizers at the most. Staff made you feel bad for ordering more drinks - even though the cocktails were meant to be bottomless for the duration of the brunch. Would recommend people NOT attend the bottomless brunch. Incredibly poor value.
Hello, Thanks for sharing your feedback, it's disappointing to hear you didn't enjoy our Bottomless Brunch. As with any service of alcohol we do need to ensure RSA is met. We certainly didn't intend to make you feel bad about ordering drinks when following our RSA policies. With regards to the food, the brunch is advertised as including one plate per person from our small dishes or snack sections of the menu. Our experience is that this works well as groups can choose a few different dishes to share between them. Sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the food choices offered. We hope you understand and will give us another chance in the future. Cheers, The National Hotel

Great meals with an asian slant, but something for everyone. Lovely idea complimentary glass of sparkling wine for mothers day was very nice. We were a family group, and as it was Sunday night with work tomorrow, no one had planned to drink alcohol, but had great time anyway.

About The National Hotel

The Nash Known to locals as ‘The Nash’, The National Hotel is a breath of fresh air amongs the Vietnamese mile of Victoria Street in Richmond. Behind subtle grey walls lies five ‘provinces’, each with their own vernacular, unified yet different. There’s the cafe, booth seating, opium den, dining room and courtyard. All governed by one central body - the bar. Monumental, the bar stretches the length of the building from the inside to out, enabling staff to serve patrons in any of the ‘provinces’. This cool and casual modern pub was stripped down to its bones in the latest renovation and then filled with a rich and textural palette of recycled materials to divide and enrich the space. It’s a beautiful place for any occasion. Expect plenty of the usual pub tipple plus a delicious array of Asian-inspired bites and meals too. The Nash is a place for people to come together in their own community – where the architecture, like the staff, is proud to serve. Best dish: drunken duck bao bun, plum sauce and pickled cucumber
