Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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.”

Summary

This “beautifully situated hotel on Richmond Hill” is a little “old-fashioned” and “conservative” and generally appeals to an older crowd. It offers “magnificent views (especially at lunch)”, the food is “better than you might expect from a hotel”, and overall it’s a “delightful experience”.

Summary

“Unbeatable views of the Thames” are the stand-out feature of this “elegant” (if “rather dated”) traditional dining room in a “lovely, old, grand hotel”, near Richmond Park – a particular hit with its silver-haired clientele; service is “gracious” and “un-rushed”, and it’s just the job for a special family meal.
