Richmond Athletic Ground (The RAG) is a restaurant wedding venue in the heart of Richmond Upon Thames in South West London, England. This unique setting allows couples a tranquil reprieve from the city. Enjoy 26 beautiful acres of lush lawns and indoor spaces for celebrating your love. While The RAG is first and foremost a sporting facility, it's perfect for a summer soiree beneath a marquee or an elegant ballroom reception.

Facilities and Capacity

Beyond the perfectly manicured lawns at Richmond Athletic Ground, you'll have the option to book two elegant indoor spaces. The Murray Judd Room can host celebrations with 150 seated guests and 300 standing. With a bar that runs the room's length, it also boasts a patio overlooking the main pitch, which may be accessed through the large bi-fold doors. Depending on your event and individual needs, the room offers flexibility and may be set up as you wish. Whether you envision a theatre or boardroom layout, they'll help you design the space and provide round, trestle, or poseur tables, bar stools, and chairs. The Club Room is more suited to intimate parties with 100 seated guests or 200 standing. As you enter this space through its French doors, you'll be greeted by pure, natural light. Large windows offer a lovely view over the front pitches. There's a bar at one end of the room, and you're welcome to request a unique layout of the space to match your style.

Testimonial from a Happy Couple (2023)

Our experience with Fiona and the team at Richmond Athletic Ground was very positive from the get go. Fiona was fantastic with her communications; queries were answered quickly and easily, and she was always extremely helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. Nick was also very helpful in the lead up to the day, and on the day itself with the set up (as we were against the clock!).

Richmond Rugby Club is an easy going venue that has everything your guests need to have a good time. We were blessed with the weather so we could enjoy the outside areas throughout our day, but the indoor area had ample space for people to sit, chat, dance and eat together. Drinks and food were extremely good value for money, especially in this current climate, and the food was delicious too! We could add personal touches and extra furniture, and the space really transformed - it's amazing what some festoon lights, dried flowers, table runners and an archway can do!

All in all it was great value for money and we were so happy with how the day and night went. It suited us and our guests down to the ground as our main objective was to bring everyone together and have fun! The team were very relaxed and accommodating, especially as we were fairly last minute. Thank you so much to you all! Richmond Athletic Ground will always have a very special place in our hearts!
