Restaurant description

On the edge of Richmond Park, Michelin-starred The Dysart Petersham is a family-owned and run restaurant driven by a passion for food and wine, commitment to quality ingredients and responsible sourcing. Local, seasonal produce packs the menu, with many ingredients from their own kitchen garden.

Dating back to 1904, the building maintains many original features alongside simple décor and a wealth of beautiful woods. Facing south over Richmond Park, the main rooms offer sun-soaked views, with a large log-burning stove on hand for colder days. Blending naturally into the village and the landscape of Richmond Park, The Dysart’s garden becomes a tranquil outdoor dining area on the warm days of late Spring, Summer and early Autumn.

Home to an antique rosewood Bechstein grand piano, music plays an important role at The Dysart. Some of the finest classical and jazz musicians have graced the salon scale stage, both for monthly Sunday evening classical recitals, and in providing a subtle backdrop to dining on a Friday and Saturday evening.

Retaining the character of a country village, Petersham is just half an hour from central London. Richmond Tube Station is a 25-minute walk from the restaurant.

    Food was average at best, service poor and slow. No explanation of dishes served. Main course was not properly hot. Plate not pre heated. For 1 Michelin star very poor. Wouldn’t recommend. Will publish full review online at a later stage. Best avoid.

    Wonderful food and great service, the mackerel starter was a revelation and so light and refreshing. Home made focaccia stunning ( very morish!) and the grouse was also exceptional according to my husband. Wine list by the glass had some great choices —- overall couldn’t fault it and COVID wise absolutely felt safe and all the right measures in place without feeling overwhelming.

    Warm welcome, excellent ambiance & pleasant decor. The waiting staff were attentive but not overly so. Food & wine both excellent with a good choice.
