British, Modern Restaurants in Richmond
1. The Petersham Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Richmond Nightingale Lane - TW10
“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”.
2. The Duke British, Modern restaurant in Richmond 2 Duke St - TW9
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.
3. Petersham Nurseries Cafe British, Modern restaurant in Richmond Church Lane (signposted 'St Peter's Church'), off Petersham Road - TW10
“It’s just fab eating great food in a greenhouse in summer or on a blue-sky winter’s day”, say fans of this “unique and magical” destination (part of a garden centre near Ham Common), which famously “oozes Bohemian charm” and is a top “romantic” trysting spot. Even those who feel its modern British cuisine is “very good” however, concede that it’s “probably not as good as it was a few years ago” (when Skye Gyngell was at the stoves, and pioneering the use of edible flowers) and more cynical souls ponder whether “seating you amongst the potted plants on rickety furniture lets them get away with the high prices and mediocre service”. It now has a sibling in Covent Garden (see also).
4. The Dysart Petersham British, Modern restaurant in Richmond 135 Petersham Road - TW10
“The food is delicious, inventive and carefully sourced” at this upscale Arts & Crafts pub near Richmond Park, where “dining is so romantic with the fairy lights glittering through the leaded windows, log fire and flagstone floors”. Irish chef Kenneth Culhane’s cooking is “Asian-influenced and nuanced – it’s not flashy, but there’s a lot of thought in it”.
