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.

    Thank You Dysart! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food and wine pairings were exceptional. Not only delicious but so well presented they were also visually stunning! We look forward to booking again so intend to sign up to your newsletter. I particularly look forward to a time when staff are not required to wear face masks and we may be able to enjoy an aperitif outside......

    The view on Richmond Park is wonderful. The interior design was done really well and feels light and airy.

    We booked the tasting menu for our wedding anniversary dinner. A really lovely evening in a lovely setting upstairs. The staff were extremely polite and knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine accompaniments. Wanted it to feel like a special evening especially given current restrictions and it did not disappoint. Each course was delicious and the right quantities so that we felt full but not uncomfortable. I think the duck was my favourite but difficult to single out a specific course really. The 'Happy Anniversary' plate of petit fours was a nice touch at the end.

    The restaurant has taken the Covid precautions as seriously as any restaurant I know which it should be praised for caring so much about its customers as well as staff. However, the ambience and setting was a lovely as ever and the staff as friendly as ever. It was good catching up with Barney and hearing his news and how they have dealt with lock down. The food was superb and some of the flavours were truly exceptional. We have been regulars at the Dysart for special occasions for some years now and will continue to be.

    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.
