“Brilliant views over the Thames at the window tables”, from a “unique” vantagepoint overlooking Petersham Meadows, add to the “tranquil” atmosphere at this impressive-looking hotel (built in 1865 by the same architect as Portland Place’s Langham Hotel). On most accounts, “decent” cooking creates “a real experience” (if in a rather old-fashioned mould), but there’s also the odd report of “perfunctory” standards. Top Tip – “a fantastic location for a relaxed afternoon tea”.

“The view from the restaurant is one of the best in London”“the best tables are near the window” where you can enjoy the “splendid setting overlooking the Thames” – from the traditional dining room of this old-fashioned and “romantic” Richmond hotel. Fans (often silver-haired) acclaim its cuisine as “a safe bet”, but a number of meals this year also ended up feeling “pricey” or “perfunctory”.

“A window table for lunch is one of the nicest spots in London”, at this old-fashioned Richmond hotel, with “incredible views over the Thames”, and whose “rather formal” style suits its older clientele. “The food is good by hotel standards, especially the Sunday lunch, but it’s advisable to book.”

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
