The recently renovated Harbour Hotel in Richmond finds its home in London’s greenest borough and feels like a countryside escape despite its city-centre address.
Private dining here is completely flexible and tailored to you, to ensure you have the freedom to build a bespoke package that’s perfect for your guests. Smaller groups can plump for a table in the main restaurant – taking full advantage of the buzzy atmosphere – while larger parties might prefer the exclusivity of the Library space. It’s here that you can dine with between 14-20 guests in the characterful panelled room. Elsewhere there’s The Richmond Room, which can seat 50, or the The Cedar Room, which offers a more traditional group dining feel and can offer space for up to 80 seated guests.
Whichever of the various rooms you choose, you’ll always be treated to the same high-quality cooking from the passionate kitchen team. While each event is handled on a bespoke basis, starters might include creamy burrata with heritage tomatoes, roasted hazelnuts and a slick of green basil oil or a luxurious plate of plump grilled scallops with a pea puree and crispy bacon. Mains include seabass with grilled fennel and orange as well as a hearty 10oz steak complete with fries, watercress, and your choice of sauce. Dietary requirements can be catered for too, and there’s even a plant-based menu for vegans and vegetarians to take advantage of, meaning mixed groups are easily accommodated.
The experienced in-house team members are on hand throughout to help you tailor things to your requirements – whether that’s creating a bespoke canapes selection or organising unique entertainment. If you really want to go all out, you could also speak to your event planning lead about decorations. Whether you bring them yourself or the staff arrange the set-up, decorations can be a great way to theme your private dining experience at the Harbour Hotel in Richmond.
