The restaurant that takes its home in a four-star boutique hotel in Richmond has undergone an extensive refurbishment, which is due to be unveiled tomorrow.
The Petersham Restaurant has been redesigned to make the most of its views across the River Thames, with floor-to-ceiling windows and colours inspired by the colours of the early morning.
The project was carried out by London-based firm Kanvass, with deep blues and soft greys brightened by strategic placement of mirrors, which help to bring natural daylight into the room.
The 70-cover restaurant is open throughout the day, with menus for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner designed by head chef Ade Adeshina.
The Petersham Hotel is a long-standing family business, having been acquired by Colin Dare in 1978, and remaining in the family ever since.
Colin’s son Greville Dare is now the managing director, while Luana Dare, Colin’s daughter, is also a director of the hotel, and was heavily involved with the new restaurant design.
Greville Dare, managing director of the Petersham Hotel said: “The new restaurant design is in keeping with the classicism of our majestic Victorian hotel building, and the essence of the restaurant which our guests know and love remains the same. What the refurbishment has done is breathe new life and modernity into the space, fully integrating the fantastic views, which we hope both our existing and new customers will embrace.”
