Built on the side of Richmond Hill in 1865, The Petersham's dining room has river views, comfortable banquette seating and smartly dressed tables. On the great value set menu you'll find chicken liver parfait with a range of heritage beetroots and pink onions, followed by Dingley Dell pork loin with creamed potatoes, pancetta and Agen prunes. Trade up to the carte and the opener might be roast poussin with pearl barley, celeriac and artichokes, followed by a tranche of wild sea bass with smoked shrimps, baked pasta, braised leeks and sea purslane. Desserts include rice pudding beignets with chocolate sauce, or classic tarte Tatin with caramel ice cream.
