British, Modern Restaurants in Richmond
1. Steven Edwards Bingham Riverhouse British, Modern restaurant in Richmond Upon Thames 61-63 Petersham Road - TW10
“A really romantic setting with stunning views over the river” – this boutique hotel dining room in Richmond features “delicious, refined dining” from chef Steven Edwards (owner of Brighton’s etch and a former winner of MasterChef: The Professionals) from Thursday dinner to Sunday lunch. It’s “pricey, but a great treat!”. A simpler menu is available for the dining room and verandah Monday-Wednesday.
2. The Ivy Café British, Modern restaurant in Richmond upon Thames 9 Hill Street - TW9
“A bit clichéd, but never lets us down”, say fans of the sub-sub brand of this famous brasserie chain, who “have no idea why its reviews are so bad”. For too many reporters, though, these outlets represent “a failing imitation of a classic that is itself rather variable”, with a “disappointing. expensive, mundane menu and inattentive service”. The best bet? “Stick to breakfast and enjoy the surroundings”.
3. The Watermans British, Modern restaurant in Richmond upon Thames 10-12 Water Lane - TW9
“A lovely pub on Water Lane leading down to the Thames: now more of a restaurant than a pub” – a smart refit now lends a brasserie vibe to the dining room at this traditional boozer, off Richmond’s picturesque waterfront. The makeover – in late 2019 – was by the Ram Pub Co, which is part of Youngs. Few reports as yet on the rather posh-for-a-pub menu (they serve a selection of oysters, for example), but early feedback says it’s “the food is good, especially the fish”, and for a comfy yet relaxed get-together you could do much worse than a trip here.
4. The Petersham Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Richmond Nightingale Lane - TW10
Stunning views across Petersham Meadows to the Thames are the highlight of any meal in the dining room of this rather stately Richmond hotel, built in 1865. The cooking is generally competent, if some would say “overpriced”, but has its fans: “we love it for family get-togethers”, while “afternoon tea here is perfect for catching up with friends”.
5. The Duke British, Modern restaurant in Richmond 2 Duke St - TW9
2019 Review: This ‘Food and Fuel’ gastroboozer with a Victorian bar remains a local staple for its “nice friendly ambience” and – amongst other things – “great steak, every time!” Stop Press: The Duke was acquired by Brunning & Price in August 2018, so perhaps change is afoot.
6. The Fat Badger British, Modern restaurant in Richmond 15-17 Hill Rise - TW10
The Gladwin family (owners of Shed, Rabbit, Nutbourne, Sussex) are opening their fifth venture in late 2021, supplied by the family farm and vineyard in Sussex: a new bar/restaurant just off Richmond’s high street on a site that was once GBK. We are promised ‘distinct countryside luxe-style, serving modern farm-to-fork food in an atmospheric, sprawling space overlooking the Richmond riverside’.
