Description: 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.

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.

“Nice cosy dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

We decided to have dinner at the Petersham restaurant on one rainy Thursday evening. We tried the summer menu created by Chef Alex Bentley. It consist of Serrano ham and tongue which consists of roasted pepper, beetroot salad, coriander and feta yoghurt as a starter. My wife the Roasted Cod Fillet ( as her mains and I had the Grilled Pork and Honey Roast Pancetta. The cod fillet was succulent and deliciously cooked. The grilled pork was also fabulous and both the portions were quite big. We then finished by sharing the Blackforest mousse which was a sinful chocolatey delight. Overall, we rather enjoyed the food that Chef Alex Bentley had produced and would be willing to come back for more.

“Menu needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

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 introduce some new dishes.House Terrine, Potted Schrimps, Classic Salad, Gammon Steak, Open Lasagne have featured on the menu during all these years.Vegetables (if they appear at all) are carrots, beans and courgettes. Flavours are also thin on the ground. Could do better.

“Great food, lovely location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 had the quail with fattoush salad. The quail was cooked beautifully and the salad was fresh and the dressing was really tasty. Paper thin slices of chilies gave a nice kick to the salad. My guest had the fish, it was wonderful. We finished off with a beautiful cappuccino and ice cream with salted carmel. The service was friendly. I will be back.
