  • Good for groups
  • Neighborhood gem
  • Great for outdoor dining
The National Hotel, located on Richmond’s bustling Victoria Street, is a place for locals and far-flung travellers to come together in a community-minded space, where the staff are always proud to serve and the atmosphere is heady with good vibes.

The original National Hotel was renovated in 2011, with the one-hundred-year old Victorian shell stripped right down to its bones. Internal workings were finessed with rich textures and colour palettes, delivering a high level of environmentally sustainable design (ESD) through the use of recycled materials.

The pan-Asian menu pays heed to our ‘Little Vietnam’ location, providing expertly crafted pub dishes that have been executed by our head chef Bobby Gogna.

Whether you’re up for a post-work drink, dinner date, drinks in the beer garden with friends or a function, we cater to all needs and our approach is always flexible.

The National Hotel. Proud To Serve.

    A great Sunday pub lunch. Food & service excellent. Roast was delicious, as were all the Asian inspired starters. Love this local.

    It was a cold night so the heating inside was very nice. The special steak was very delicious. However there were two of us and we were each given the wrong steak, which we didn't realise until they were half eaten. The presence of several dogs in the dining area was not appreciated. The service was good and friendly. Maybe the tables were a bit too close to each other for privacy

    Went for regular steak night. Only to find it wasn’t on and a very basic Anzac Day menu offered instead Very basic burger . I always find service staff who serve a male ahead of a woman who has been waiting to be served much longer irritating. !! We usually love this pub so will try again and avoid Anzac Day. All in all with the 15% surcharge it was not a great value experience.
