From beginning to end a great experience, attentive service and gorgeous food. The canapés and bread before the meal were exquisite. For my starter I had the duck salad which was cooked perfectly. For the main I the beef which again was cooked perfectly. Rounded off with a cheese board. Throughout the service was spot on with regards to drinks... More

We visited here with family on a Sunday to celebrate an engagement. Although it wasn't serving your typical roast the cuisine was tasteful, colourful and had a choice for most people. Most of all I would hazard a guess most of what they serve would be pleasurable to the pallette. The main reason I feel compelled to write this review... More

Second time I've been - first was as a solo diner for the vegetarian tasting menu; on this occasion I went with my family (including two girls aged 10 and 13). Sensational both times. This time, we all took the weekend lunch prix fixe menu - there is a kids' version too - and it was a treat to have... More

This actually looks like an pub on the edge of Richmond Park, but it is extremely accomplished gastro dining with modern interiors. A pianist plays on some evenings and the taster menu, both regular and vegitarian is well worth the treat. Pricely but excellent. Sit and enjoy beautiful food and accompanying wine whilst listening to the lovely sounds of the... More

Quite disappointed actually after reading such good reviews. I'll put it down to the staff maybe having a late night on Saturday and not really being up for a table of 3 kids and 2 adults. The low mark is because of the staff. The food was fine but nothing stood out to bring back any fond memories. I may... More

A lovely place to go for an evening dinner. Clearly well established now - and they've got it off to a tee. The quality of the food, and the service, is great too. It's a serious food restaurant. Without being too pretentious. Lovely parsnip soup with coconut (unusual). And the beef main course was divine - real quality and cooked... More

A friend and I wanted an alternative place to eat near to the Petersham gate into Richmond Park and came upon this restaurant almost by accident. We weren't overly hungry and asked if we could have a light lunch. We were offered a starter as a main, so to speak. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was a delight,... More

Such exquisite flavours, such excellent service, ad such a quiet atmosphere. And very reasonable for the set lunch price. We'll be back. We only had the chance for one glass of wine but even that blew us away. The canapes/amuse bouches were to die for!

My absolute favourite place to eat when we're in the UK visiting our daughters. Fantastic food, tremendous atmosphere and attentively looked after by Barney and his team once again. Love it and will definitely be back again.

A lovely place to go. Clearly well established now - and they've got it off to a tee. The quality of the food, and the service, is great too. Quite atmospheric in a traditional "gastropub" way; but it's not a gastropub any more. It's a serious food restaurant. With gentle live piano music. Lovely. Great mackerel starter then pigeon -...

Description
The Dysart Petersham is family owned and run. Everything about The Dysart Petersham, its initial restoration, approach to food, drinks and service, commitment to quality ingredients and responsible sourcing, concern for tradition, garden, is driven by a guiding family view and firmly rooted in the shared values of Manager, Barny Taylor, and classically trained Head Chef, Kenneth Culhane. Both are constantly inspired and re-invigorated by our beautiful, country, surroundings in this village and the changes it sees through the seasons. They are supported by a wider team, front of house and behind the scenes in the kitchen and by gardener and forager, bringing delights to us at unexpected moments. Both love the moment when new ingredients arrive each day, freshly gathered to influence the dishes. Together, the team is passionate about food and wine, sensitive to the increasing need, understood naturally in earlier years better connected with nature, for ethical treatment and welfare of animals, thoughtful and natural cultivation of plants, the value of old varieties and breeds, the richness that wild herbs, flowers and plants add and the wise use of resources. Both are keen communicators. Both want to make guests happy. Barny is never happier than when showing our nature board, explaining the ingredients, the flavour balances, the cooking methods, sourcing and traditions to those who want to listen - and why a particular wine is so good with them, often a surprising wine, but has the sensitivity from experience to know when guests simply want to enjoy the company, the food, the wine, the hospitality - the occasion.
