petersham hotel

its amazing how quick time flies – its eilleen’s birthday, she would have been 86 on monday- we have decided that its much more memorable to celebrate her birthday rather than her day of passing.  we had a lovely  family lunch in the  Petersham Hotel with a table right by the windows with the spectacular view of the river .  there is a special 3 course lunch which is very good value, so i definitely recommend it as a lovely venue for a special family get together.  the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.  i also loved the drive over hammersmith bridge and through barnes – lovely views by the river – its definitely the nearest you get to being in the country whilst being in london.

if you do get all the way to richmond, then i would also recommend that you visit  Petersham nurseries –go for afternoon tea or even try one of their tea tasting days or flower arranging courses.  i just love to browse the lovely shop – its a perfect place to buy gifts or just be inspired by the style and plants.  there are also an amazing choice of herbs to buy.
