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.

    Wonderful evening at the Dysart - first class food and wine as always, a gorgeous setting and flawless service. Dinner was presented immaculately and tasted absolutely delicious; we especially love the menu of dishes based on seasonal food but given a special Dysart twist. Also enjoy the fact that we can pair wine by the glass with each dish, and recommend this option. Social distancing measures have been addressed elegantly, with consideration for diners and the layout of the Dysart lends itself to this very well. The team created a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed our evening immensely. Highly recommended; we hope to be back there very soon.

    Our visit was just perfect from beginning to end. Everyone at Dysart were professional and the food sensational. We had the tasting menu with the wine flight. They paid attention to the fact that my friend is a Pescatarian and when my lamb dish was served she was presented with a wonderful risotto. Each dish was a true delight such fantastic food amazing I would definitely recommend Dysart it is the first time we had visited and we will be back! The setting is beautiful so bright and airy such a special building so much space between tables every member of staff wore masks and everything was very clean. I thought it was a good idea to take client's temperature before we were admitted.

    We had a wonderful time. The team at Dysart were very considerate, particularly in managing the current COVID dining world. Food and Menu very good, sensible wine list. Thoroughly recommend it.

    This was my first meal out since lockdown and I felt totally safe, wonderfully looked after and the entire experience was fantastic as always. Barney and the team have put a lot of thought into ensuring a safe experience and at no point did I feel nervous or too close to other people. The food was amazing - I had the Turbot - just heaven and the sauce was to die for. The Dysart team have amazing attention to detail from the minute you engage with them to the moment you leave - they can't do enough to make it a wonderful and special experience - I would highly recommend this restaurant and I shall be back very soon...

    This was our first meal out after lockdown and, as always, it never disappoints. Thoughtful service, quiet calm ambience, perfect food, reasonably priced, a total delight.

    We had the Tasting Menu! Wow - it was really delicious! Impossible to pick a favourite dish. This was a post COVID visit and the Dysart dealt with the social distancing, cleanliness and Poe impeccably . Better than a 1 star Michelin experience. Very creative chef!
