Eat & Drink
Head chef Mark Jarvis and his team create modern British cuisine using the best locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Guests dine in the light and airy dining room, with its wood floors and French doors opening on to a balcony perfect for al fresco suppers.
Start off with the heritage beetroot with goat's cheese, pistachio and aged balsamic, then opt for the succulent Telmara farm duck with hispi cabbage, prunes and kohlrabi, or maybe grass fed beef with roasted onion, buttermilk and oxtail. Sunday roasts are a big favourite here, too.
Scrummy desserts include gingerbread with orange, quince and stem ginger, or the wicked Valrhona chocolate with blackberries and ice cream. Be sure to have a nibble at the hotel's famous cheeseboard, or pop in for afternoon tea with home made scones.
Buffet breakfast – continental and everything from smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to the full English – is served until 10am.
Available morning and evening.
See & Do
Soak up life on the riverbank with a boat ride along the Thames – or sit with a glass of Pimm’s at a riverside pub and watch life on the water. Richmond is a great base for excursions to Hampton Court Palace, one time seat of Henry Vlll and scene of many a lusty liaison, or the sights and scents of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. You can go riding or walking in nearby Richmond Park (spot the herds of red deer) or hire a skiff and picnic along the riverbanks.
Holler for your favourite team at the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.
Get into the strawberries and champagne lifestyle at Wimbledon – and watch some tennis while you’re at it.
Go green fingered at the big Hampton Court Flower Show.
