Description: Of all the restaurants in South West London, The Petersham in Richmond is without doubt one of the finest. The restaurant's ambience is relaxed and the service discreet and unlike other restaurants in Richmond, each table boasts unspoilt, panoramic views of the River Thames and surrounding water meadow. The Alcove is a private area off the main restaurant, seating up to 12 guests. It offers the same classical dining that can be experienced in the restaurant with all the privacy of a secluded area. The snow is guaranteed at The Petersham throughout December for lunch abd dinner.

Took a party of 12 demanding ladies here for lunch. They were all absolutely delighted: by the venue, the service and the delicious food. Very good value for money too. Currently my favourite local restaurant.

Delicious grilled salmon, crisp seaweed and smoked haddock starter with a half bottle of white burgundy followed by wild duck with lentils and blackberries and a reasonably priced fleurie attentively served in a wonderful dining room with one of the best views in Surrey.

Re - visited this restaurant recently for a family occasion including the relatives from 'OZ' who were staying nearby; so it was a particularly convenient location. The welcome on arrival was good and an area within the restaurant bar reserved for our party of eleven people was appreciated. I have to say that my 2013 review stands. Considering that the... More

We sat at a window table with an incredible view of the River Thames as the sun went down. It was a modern British menu beautifully prepared and presented . The service was excellent.

We stay at the Petersham regularly and always enjoy our experience.We often have dinner and/or Sunday lunch when staying there.The restaurant has a wonderful position overlooking the river and the service is great. However, the menu is so repetitive that some dishes go back at least 10 years. Chef Alex Bentley should try a bit harder in our view and... More

I had my first, but hopefully, not my last meal at Petersham's this week. It is in a building attached to the very lovely Petersham Nursery. It is quirky and quite charming. We sat at a zinc topped table (I think it was zinc) under the vines that ran across the ceiling. It felt like we out of doors. I... More
