With stunning views over the river and friendly staff this made for a delightful afternoon. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were just perfect and the selections of teas or coffee was fantastic. Well worth a visit especially if you like a bit of Old England.

This hotel restaurant has very good food, impeccable service and a stunning view over the river Thames. Very good wine menue as well (a bit pricy, but lots of choice). Nice atmosphere!

Love this place, in an ironic sense! Old school dining, stuck back in the day, with decent food and snotty service. Do visit only because it's hilarious.

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.
