Our favourite by far

On the edge of Richmond Park, 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.

This is probably our favourite restaurant in the area for special celebrations and worth travelling to.
Delicious and imaginative food. The portions are adequate - the food is rich and you don't go away feeling bloated, but others might think they are on the small side. It would be nice to have a greater selection of vegetables.
The restaurant was impressively well prepared to deal with food intolerances - lactose and gluten in my case - and the waiter solicitously identified those menu items which were potentially problematic and offered tweaks to the components of many of the dishes that would avoid the problem. Very impressive. It would be even better if flour-based dishes could be offered with gluten-free flour alternatives to extend the options, especially the delicious puddings where the selection was consequently a bit narrow. However this does not detract from the overall observation that the restaurant was very thoughtful and well geared up to deal with food intolerances.
Good wines were available by the glass and carafe, which too few restaurants offer.
Lovely ambience, particularly with the log fire burning on a chilly night, and dogs made welcome - hallmark of a truly civilised restaurant! Tables are very well spaced so there is no sense of crowding or having to listen to someone else's conversation.
