We booked the alcove for lunch to celebrate our sons wedding. We were a party of 6 with a 4 week old baby. From the moment we arrived we were beautifully looked after. We had house champagne enjoying the view and moved to the beautiful...More

We were highly impressed with the view from where we sat. The service was ordinary, nothing to complain about. It was expected for the price that one pays. From experience eating out in different restaurants, the service that makes a difference is the personality of...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

Burnt toast to accompany a terrine, Pea soup that was tasteless and not seasoned adequately (in fact no hint of salt or pepper) and a tiny Tomato salad that was bland and unappetising. These were our starters and it did not get better. In fairness...More

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.

Great place for a gathering and the service is really professional but terribly slow to take the pudding order and even slower to arrive with the puds. No other gripe though; lovely lunch. Good value set lunch even on a Saturday.

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.
