Someone at work won a two course meal at the Petersham Restaurant in a charity raffle and gave it to me. We went there today. What a lovely place. Staff were faultless especially the Maitre D who knew precisely what was going on in his restaurant, where everyone was and what should be happening.
The food was superb, the service excellent, the views across Petersham Meadows and the Thames absolutely amazing and calming. PLUS the poshest ladies toilets in Europe!!
We would never have thought of going there for lunch thinking it was extremely expensive however, looking at the menu, we would be happy to go there every now and then for a treat. I am going to have a look at how much their Sunday lunch is as we often treat ourselves when we have had a busy week.
It is a thumbs up from me and the husband for the Petersham although I do have to say that I agree with the comments about the parking. I had no trouble actually parking but getting out of my parking space was quite difficult as there were cars parked in the middle of the car park between the two marked rows. I have a new car and had to do several manoeuvres to get out of the parking space to avoid smacking a Porsche (Company insurance would not have been happy with that!).
We have been to many good restaurants and hotels and in some of them the staff are a bit snooty, the staff at the Petersham are excellent. Looking forward to going back.
