Afternoon Tea at The Petersham

Indulge in this quintessentially British tradition overlooking the River Thames. Savour freshly prepared cakes, pastries and sandwiches alongside a glass of our very own Petersham Champagne.

A British Tradition

This delightful tradition has become somewhat of an institution at
The Petersham over the years, but we have always remained true to the classic combination of sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries. Baked fresh each and every day, our pastry chef has perfected the art of the perfect sweet teatime treat. All our afternoon teas are served with fresh clotted cream, jam and of course, your choice of fine tea.  And, with panoramic views of the River Thames from every table, there is no better place to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in Richmond.

3.00pm – 5.30pm on Monday - Saturday

£27.50 Monday – Friday
