My friend and I took out mums who are 87 and 92 respectively for afternoon tea. Have got to say this has to have been one of the better ones we've had. The views were stunning, the staff were very attentive and the food was...More

The lunchtime and a'la carte menu was nice in that it is restricted and still with a good choice, but the service let's this place down. An indifferent welcome and confusion over what table we should sit at kicked off an over attentive service unable...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.
