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.

But not something I would go back to What made out night was Phil our waiter who attended to us exceptionally well. He read our table and individual needs ( ie wine tastes and vegetarian) The somelier was also very informative So thank you

The food was delicious and always feels like it is fresh and well sourced. Both food and the pear bellini cocktail we started with were interesting and delightful. The staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel that they were invested in us having a pleasant and happy experience. We particularly enjoyed our beef cheeks, which were meltingly soft and the perfect comfort food. This a lovely hidden gem in the heart of Covent Garden. Can't wait to find an excuse to go back.

I knew we had to book somewhere special for a dinner and Petersham Nurseries delivered. My friend loves greenery, foliage and growing things, plus seasonal vegetables and good wine. Petersham Nurseries had all of these things in abundance. The service from start to finish was impeccable. Particularly note has to go to our sommelier and his lovely pin of grapes! He helped us pick a special wine for the evening. Our server also brought a vegan menu out to me without me having to say so (I'd put it in my reservation). The whole thing was completely unhurried even though we were a few minutes late and were the second last table in the whole restaurant. All the food and portions were just spot on - fresh, delicious, perfectly-sized. I could have perhaps done without the drunken two (!) birthday parties shouting and singing happy birthday as I think the restaurant is too classy for that, but overall, the night was absolutely fabulous and we will remember it for a long time. Thank you.
