SquareMeal Review of The Petersham Restaurant

The Petersham Hotel’s restaurant makes the most of its fabulous pastoral view over the river Thames, complete with cows grazing in the field. The space is formal enough to please afternoon tea devotees, but younger, smiley staff seem to have encouraged a more informal crowd for lunches and dinners. Chef Adebola Adeshina’s menu has some all-time crowd pleasers – grilled dover sole with capers and brown butter, and duck breast with prunes – but there’s plenty there to entice the more culinary daring. Particular highlights for us included a beautifully put together steamed crab lasagne with capers and tarragon, and a tender beef fillet served with a slow-cooked Jacob’s ladder and a rich bordelaise sauce. To finish, a hot cherry soufflé with orange compote and sorbet is worth the wait. Happily, the dishes sophistication hasn't reached the prices, with the set lunch menu easily affordable.

the restaurant had amazing views- the river, the meadow and the trees makes the experience quiet tranquil. The service was charming and the food was excellent although a bit on the heavy side. Lovely place to go with family on a weekend.
