Booked a semi-separate room for a special occasion for ten friends. Drinks were promptly and efficiently served while we waited for everyone to arrive, then menus distributed when they had. When the time came to order, the first of a series of disappointments; the lobster was off, but no-one had told us when giving us the menus, as surely they... More

Don't usually like eating at restaurants in hotels but this one surpassed all my hopes with excellent food in a lovely setting for dinner with friends for my husband's special birthday. We had a window seat which would have been spectacular with views over the Thames had it not been dark. The service was first class and the only thing... More

I visited the Petersham restaurant on a Tuesday afternoon. It was very quiet with only a couple of tables occupied. There was a varied selection of tea and cakes. The egg and cucumber sandwiches were a bit of a disappointment but overall the afternoon tea selection was great. A bit pricey but with views over the Thames I think it... More

My partner & I dined at the Petersham while staying overnight. The meal was of a memorably high quality. The only better meal I have eaten this year was also at the Petersham.

My first visit. I was surprised to find the dining room so modern and attractive. The picture windows allow you to see the bend in the River Thames at Petersham, close to Richmond. I agree with all the good reviews. We had the fixed price lunch (£22,95 for two courses, £26.95 for three). Not unreasonable prices for an excellent hotel.... More

its very British, and service is good. I found it expensive in the end, but no problem with quality of food. Friday night and half-empty? this is where you wonder, is Brexit biting its way into revenues of restaurants in this very international town of Richmond?

Four of us were booked for an Afternoon Tea to celebrate my birthday. Walking the short distance from the car park to the hotel gave us the chance to admire the Victorian building. The hotel looks out across Petersham Meadows to the bend in the Thames,. Our table was perfectly placed to make the most of this wonderful peaceful view.... More

We went for High Tea to the Petersham Hotel and it was disappointing. The scones were fine but not warm, the cakes were boring and dry and not freshly baked, the tarte was soaked through and soft, the sandwiches just standard and not really appealing and interesting. The tea was ok but they had Darjelling only in tea bags, the... More

Of all the restaurants in South West London, The Petersham in Richmond is without a doubt one of the finest. With the 5 rating in The Good Food Guide, the Gordon Ramsay trained Chef, restaurant's ambience and panoramic views of the River Thames and surrounding water meadow, it truly is a special venue for any occasion. For private dining, the Alcove off the main restaurant, seats up to 12 guests offering the same classical dining that can be experienced in the restaurant with all the privacy of a secluded area.
