The Petersham Hotel
Evolving a classic.
The Petersham Restaurant in Richmond is unique, benefitting from panoramic, floor-to-ceiling views of the famous bend in the River Thames and surrounding Petersham Meadows.
Kanvass were invited to re deisgn this classic “local favourite” restaurant in the Petersham Hotel.
Working closley with owners Luana and Greville Dare, we evolved the design to create a timeless classic.
The restaurant space is unique with a sublime view of the Thames, arguably the most stunning along the whole river.
This space is light filled and provides an ever changing dramatic backdrop for diners with light and shade providing a rich background in any weather.
It was the early morning light that served as the inspiration for us bringing in the lighter and playful tones drawing from deep blues and greys.
With a very strong following for Head Chef, Jean-Didier Gouges and his modern British food and the warm and welcoming atmosphere, friendly service and fantastic food the Petersham remains a huge success.

“Their professionalism, their can-do attitude and their talent for design are just a few of the reasons why I would not hesitate to use Kanvass again on future projects or indeed recommend them to others”
Greville Dare, The Petersham Hotel
“As a Richmond resident for 12 years there a was a deep connection with the signature elements to this wonderful property that we wanted to enhance. The restaurant views of the river were our core inspiration, ever aware of the impact of the changing seasons and its affect on the interior. We are delighted with how it has worked to bring light and life into the space.”
Tristram Hillier, MD, Kanvass
“The hotel overlooks Petersham Meadows and the bend in the River Thames between Richmond and Teddington, a view that has been most famously captured by J.M.W Turner (Tate Britain) and which became a popular beauty spot in the 18th and 19th centuries.”
“Designed by London-based firm Kanvass, not only does the award-winning eatery possess stylish fixtures and fittings, it also enjoys panoramic, floor-to-ceiling views of the famous bend in the River Thames and surrounding Petersham Meadows.”
