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.

    Everyone (including our 9 and 11yr old) had an excellent time. Great food and a relaxed, refined setting made a great family time out. We went for the taster menu. The hake was everyone’s favourite and the apple/wasabi combination of the palate cleanser very successful followed by a satisfying desert. As a suggestion I would propose (if I may) a different cut of meat for the steak for a smoother texture.

    Lovely, brilliant and completely surprising. Don’t expect the slick, practiced approach of the longer standing ‘1 stars’ in the area... The Dysart goes its own way and is all the better for it. My new favourite restaurant and can’t wait to go back.

    The dysart is fabulous - lovely ambience, perfect service and interesting, inventive and tasty menu with great value prix fix ... even better your dog is welcome. It’s rare to be able to go out in London and have such a classy dining experience with the dog in tow. The michelin star is well deserved We will be back

    Very good meal. We had a guest with specific dietary requirements and the restaurant went out of their way to be flexible and accommodating. We had the tasting menu which is a selection of dishes from the a la carte. All the food was good on each course and had good flavours. The ambiance was really good and the service was polite efficient and friendly.

    We haven't been here for ages but saw it has recently received a Michelin star. We had an overseas visitor and took the opportunity to go for lunch. The whole enterprise has gone up a gear since our last visit and was much more slick and professional in all areas. The food was fabulous. Only (mild, I understand they don't want "no shows") caveat - it was irritating to be asked to reconfirm on the morning of the visit as we were busy, I just missed the call on my mobile and then had difficulty ringing back as requested as the phone was continually engaged. I always inform a restaurant if I am late or need to cancel.

    Absolutely first class. We had the fixed price lunch menu with a good selection of options. Every course was absolutely delicious. The restaurant itself has a lovely spacious yet intimate feeling. The tables were a good size - we were a table of four and did not feel cramped like you usually do. Highly recommend this to anyone! I will be returning very soon.
