Customer reviews for The Petersham Restaurant
((((( 12 July 2019 by Bill from London
it was a very impressive arrival into the forecourt of the beautiful Victorian mansion that is the Petersham Hotel. The reception team was helpful and welcoming and in no time I felt safe that I had registered my car's details correctly. A slow stroll through the finely appointed rooms with stylish interior design and comfortable seating in wonderful rich colours made me happy that I had chosen to entertain my friends there.
My arrival at the restaurant revealed the beautiful view, which makes Richmond on Thames so famous around the world. The staff were most kind and attentive and soon my guests arrived and enjoyed the warm atmosphere of the room and its elegant decor.
The food and wines were delicious and imaginatively presented. A real treat in all senses of the word. A perfect evening, very much appreciated, so thanks to all your wonderful team.
That said, I found the Forbes corrections irritating. We are in England and they repeatedly tried to make me spell everything in the American way. a bit too clever by half.

Wonderful experience. Very welcoming staff and a beautiful view. The food itself was an utter delight. Each dish brought novelty as well as freshness, subtlety and delight to every mouthful. The Bonsai desert made me laugh until I tasted it - then I was too busy savouring every morsel!

Fab hotel venue with lovely views over Petersham fields and the river Thames from the restaurant and bar area.
The service was excellent and the food delicious. The only downside was the soup which I found rather bland.

Overall experience absolutely amazing :) lovely and welcoming staff, we had best table in the corner next to the window and it was snowing 2x during dinner :) The atmosphere was really lovely.
With regards to food, starters amazing, desserts very rich and perfectly presented. Only disappointment was a Confit duck leg which really did not look like prepared by chef but rather looked like village pub food.

The new Chef is weak. The food is a bland with little taste. We hope he improves and gets confident with the food. We are coming again within the week and so are opinion may change and maybe he will be more comfortable with food preparation and a little less bland. As always the service was just great.
This is the 4th Chef we have been through and let's hope it works out well.

Our Family dined in the Petersham on Sunday 10th June Celebrating my Wife's Birthday. What a fantastic Restaurant, with views over the Thames to match.
The service was excellent and the food was out of this world. We have been to this restaurant on our own before so we knew what to expect and they did not let us
down. In fact the experience was so good that we will be visiting this restaurant again very soon.
If you are celebrating a special occasion, as we were, then I can highly recommend this venue. You will not be disappointed. If not a celebratory meal, then I can still
recommend it for fantastic food and service.
I want to say a very big THANK YOU to The Petersham for helping us celebrate my Wife's Birthday in style.
We all enjoyed the experience very much.
