Easy to reach from central London by train, Kingston borders the verdant Richmond Park, with its resident deer. To the south east is Hampton Court Palace and Park, the grand historic residence completed by Henry VIII in the 16th century. With so much to see and do in the area, you’ll be pleased to know that there are several great restaurants in Kingston where you can rest your weary pins. And most serve food fit for a hungry member of the royal family.
Kingston restaurants represent an impressive range of world cuisines, from Japanese and Korean, to French and more. The area also boasts a smattering of celebrated gastro pubs. One such posh-pub-grub purveyor is the Canbury Arms, just minutes from Kingston Rail Station on foot. Food fans have bestowed the Canbury with numerous accolades, including titles from the Great British Pub Awards, Time & Leisure Magazine, and The Good Food Guide. Menus here are British, seasonal, and locally sourced.
Continental cuisine enthusiasts will enjoy Rococo, a riverside Italian with a budget-friendly £4.95 lunch menu. Food here is fresh and authentic: dough is made on site and head chef Giovanni spins the pizza bases to order. Alongside pizzas, a strong selection of seafood, pasta and meat mains grace the menu.
