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.

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

    We had a fabulously relaxed evening, with wonderful food and great service. All three of my courses were memorable, which is unusual as often we tend to score our starters and desserts over our main course. I had lobster which was exquisite, followed by the lamb, my partner had scallops and grouse. His starter was the least complex and perhaps not as exciting but my lobster was always going to win! We were fascinated by the herbs used and had lots of discussion with our wonderful and very helpful server about the herbs used and their background. My chocolate dessert and salted caramel ice cream with pistachio was heavenly and I raved about it for ages afterwards (although I found the cherry to be superfluous) and my partner enjoyed his autumn fruits, but again we agreed mine topped his! Covid-wise we were looked after extremely well, with a pre-dinner call, temperature etc on entry, sensible instructions, incredibly well-spaced tables which meant we shared a huge upstairs space with only one other table. The entire staff were helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and unobtrusive. Ours was a special anniversary celebration and we felt we'd made the right choice for our rare evening out together.

    It was wonderful, the quality of service received from the staff was the best: attentive, Knowledgable, welcoming; a real delight. Food was out of the world. Only criticism I would give is that there is a tiny bit of atmosphere missing (especially now there’s fewer covers) so would have been wonderful if there had been a pianist playing the piano that’s proudly on display

    Please don’t hesitate to book - the restaurant is a real treat to visit. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

    A superb experience overall. From the moment we arrived the staff assured us calmly that covid compliance was being exceeded and reassuringly talked us through the measures to ensure this. We ate on the 1st floor in a stunning room with glimpses of the park from the windows. The food was all delicious, beautifully presented and described fully when served. Staff were knowledgeable about everything they served. It is very rare but this was as faultless as any meal I have had in recent years and we will definitely be returning.
