  • Charming
  • Good for special occasions
  • Great for fine wines
An elegant refined, a la carte restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden, The Petersham is a culinary oasis in a fast-paced urban environment.
During spring and summer months, tables flow out on to Floral Court, giving diners the opportunity to eat and drink al fresco.
Respecting the Slow Food philosophy of Good, Clean and Fair, the menu offers simple, seasonal and sustainable food with a focus on quality ingredients and Italian flavours. Suppliers have been carefully selected during food buying trips, with family owned and run Haye Farm supplying poultry, eggs and organic fruit and vegetables to all Petersham Nurseries restaurants. Drawing inspiration from Boglione’s Richmond family home, Petersham House, the interiors demonstrate a charming elegance.

    Food is delicious but very small portions. Ambiance is good but staff are very aggressive with their service, just wanting to sell you the most expensive wine and trying to sell you more and more dishes and drinks all the time. It’s as if they get a commission on everything they sell to you! Very expensive restaurant for the quantities you get. It was not like this two years ago. I will not return anymore I’m afraid.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Petersham’s. The service was lovely. Everyone was gracious and spoke to us as if we were the only guests. The meal was terrific. I had the oysters and the glazed rib. The oysters were fabulous and the glazed rib was like eating butter. The rum baba afterward was excellent! The meal was so enjoyable and I would highly recommend a visit here. The flowers everywhere just added to the experience. Well done!
