Located in Central London, The Petersham focuses on the finest seasonal produce, quality ingredients and Italian flavours, serving lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

Drawing inspiration from the family home, Petersham House in Richmond, the interiors of this stunning Floral Court venue demonstrate the Boglione’s passion for contemporary art, Murano glassware and understated grandeur, reflecting their personal tastes and collections.

Seasonal Sample Menus

Our menus are based on a slow food ethos, sticking firmly to seasonal produce, with as few food miles as possible. Haye Farm, in Devon – run by the son of our founders – supplies us with meat, eggs and produce all through the year, so we are sure of the quality of our ingredients.


Vegan and Vegetarian menus are available

La Merenda Afternoon Tea

Drawing on the Boglione family’s Piedmontese heritage, the menu combines the quintessential British afternoon tea with the vibrant flavours and delicious produce of Italy. Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, Turin has a rich history of café culture, as its coffee houses have been home to lively debates between artists, revolutionaries and politicians since the 17th century.


Afternoon Tea timings: Thursday – Saturday: 3pm – 5pm Sunday: 2pm – 5pm

Vegan and Vegetarian menus are available

The Team

Headed by our Executive Chef Lorenzo Gagliardi, our kitchen teams are constantly working with producers to evolve our menus with the seasons. Head chef at The Petersham in Floral Court is Raffaele Parise, working with an amazing team that have worked in some of the best restaurants in the world.

Ethos of Our Food


Being one of the pioneers in the slow food movement, we celebrate traditional methods of growing quality ingredients. This ethos has flowed into building relationships with organic British suppliers and sourcing responsibly from small like-minded producers, including our own farm – Haye Farm Devon. Bringing the very best organic and sustainably produced meat and vegetables straight from the farm to our kitchens.


With our menus being refreshed through the season, our chefs only use produce which is at its peak. Most ingredients are British first, while some speciality ingredients are sourced from Italy – such as Parmesan, White Truffles, Olive Oil and Vanilla pods. As we are so seasonally led, the colours of the plate naturally reflect the changing view outside.


Our offering is simple in so far as we don’t seek to bathe ingredients in heavy sauces or to override or change their essence in any way. We are classicists. When we have beautiful produce, well grown and correctly sourced, we use them in our recipes in the simplest way to bring out their natural favour and beauty.
