Richmond is a popular tourist destination in London (sometimes also referred to as being in Surrey) but free of the typical tourist traps. We’ve hand-picked the best of the best here. And nope, none of these places have paid us to write nice stuff about them. They’re simply good and we love delivering our cakes there.
The dining-out scene in Richmond is good - you have the usual suspects in the form of chains such as Ivy Cafe, Cote etc, but you also have fantastic independent restaurants that are so popular you have to book well in advance.
Al Boccon di Vino - This is the most charming Italian restaurant you’ll ever visit. It’s small and cosy, perfect for date nights with someone special, or for groups. It can get boisterous, but not in an obnoxious way. The food is surprising here. It’s not your usual pizza-pasta. And there is NO MENU. The restaurant has a set menu, depending on what’s in season, and it’s a surprise course after surprise course after surprise course (we’ve lost count of how many courses) of delightful Italian cuisine. Prepare to spend the whole evening here. You’ll lose track of time from all the fun you’re having getting stuffed without having to think.
Sebastians - A good and solid Italian offering authentic wood-fired pizzas, pasta dishes and other favourites. I particularly love the aubergine parmigiana which can be ordered as a starter or a main. The outdoor covered and heated patio area is particularly nice. But overall, it’s a great restaurant choice for girls/mums dinner out and groups.
The Gate at Richmond Harbour Hotel - The bar and restaurant at the Richmond Harbour Hotel has a gorgeous outdoor area. Perfect for summer celebrations.
Petersham Nurseries - This extremely photogenic venue is a fancy garden centre-posh restaurant-casual tearoom all-in-one. It’s lush and brimming with greenery. The restaurant is called the Petersham Nurseries Cafe and is a beautiful space serving fine Italian cuisine. It’s ideal for intimate dates or family celebrations.
Gaucho - For a chain, this location can’t be beaten. Smack in front of the river. Hence, it’s the best Gaucho of all the Gauchos. Also, as it’s a chain, you get what you expect, which is the exact same everything as last time if you’re lucky.
Richmond has a variety of old school wooden beam pubs, the smallest ever pub (the Victoria), and modern pubs. We’ve naming the best and what we like about them.
The Britannia - With three dining areas, this pub can cater for any style of gathering. The food is excellent British pub food, and the service is attentive and friendly. It is one of the most well run pubs in the area and celebrating any occasion here would go down well.
The Watermans Richmond - Formerly, a sticky floored drinking hole. It has since been taken over by the same management as the popular Britannia Pub and given a plush Parisian gastro-bistro make-over. The menu is predominantly seafood but they also have something for everybody (the steak tartare is especially good!). The cocktail list is concise and refined. Perfect for couples dining or groups. During the warmer months they also have a charming outdoor area, and it’s the ideal location to go for a sweet scenic walk along the river after.
The Roebuck - A pub with a view hard to beat. While it is a standard pub-grub type of venue, they DO cater for gluten-free too, and the view over Richmond Hill, known as Turner’s View, is spectacular. You can pop outside with your drink and drink in the views. The function room upstairs (were we had our son's Christening meal with a Peter Rabbit Cake) unfortunately got badly flooded and isn't expected to re-open until March 2023.
The Marlborough - The large astro-turfed beer garden is fantastic in the summer.
The Victoria Sheen - A special mention should go to the Victoria pub in East Sheen. Whilst a bit set away from the heat of the action around George Street in Richmond, the pub is a fantastic choice for any celebration. It also has a playground to entertain little guests and the food is fabulous.
Richmond-upon-Thames is one of the nicest areas to have a wedding. With lots of beautiful backdrops for those all-important photos - the river, the romantic winding lanes, the cobblestone streets and the terraced gardens, it also has some well-known wedding venues.
The Bingham - A modern hotel with panoramic views of the river from their terrace, this is one of the nicest boutique hotel wedding venues.
Pembroke Lodge - Set within the beautiful and expansive grounds of Richmond Park, Pembroke Lodge is a warm and inviting venue with period features.
Petersham Nurseries - We’ve already waxed lyrical about how beautiful this venue is in the restaurants section. They’re available to hire for weddings too.
The Petersham Hotel - Stunning from the outside and the inside, this hotel overlooks the Thames.
Terraced Gardens - We’ve had many kids birthday picnics in the gorgeous Terraced Gardens. String up bunting on the trees, and lay down your blankets near the flower beds, the sweet Hollyhock cafe (which serves delightful plant-based food and drinks), or the covered podium and let the kids discover the secret tree-cave.
My Gym - Kids soft play centre offers party packages. The best thing is they take care of everything - from food for the little ones, to the entertainment. All you have to do is bring the best cake - and you know where to get that from - Anges de Sucre.
If you’ve arrived ahead of time, fret not. There’s plenty to browse around Richmond to kill time.
Richmond Green - Have a calming stroll along the green.
Riverside Promenade - Have another calming stroll along the river.
Coffee Shops - Pop in for a killer cup of caffeine at one of Richmond’s fabulous independent coffee shops. We’ll name our favourites - Bridge & Hill Stores, Kiss the Hippo and Coffeeology.
Hot Chocolate - If caffeine isn’t your thing, have a small hot chocolate from Knoops. You won’t regret it. I recommend the 70% blend.
Nightlife isn’t a thing in Richmond per-se. The only late-night venue is Be-at-One and that’s really for when you really want to be out-out. However, Richmond has some very stylish and sexy cocktail bars that are open till 00:00-01:00.
Chalk - Trendy cocktail bar with very refined and exquisitely balanced drinks. In fact, the drinks are so good you can actually take them away ready-mixed to have at home.
So Bar - Fabulous cocktail bar with speakeasy vibes. Perfect for dates and groups. They have an upstairs lounge area available to hire too for private events.
Dropkick Johnnys - Excellent whisky cocktails in the bar above the Tap Tavern. Ideal for small groups as it is a tight space.
Scotts - Swish seafood restaurant, from the same owners as Scotts Mayfair, J Sheekey, Caprice et all. Expect fancy white tablecloth service. Whilst it is a posh restaurant, they have a wonderful oyster bar for drinks with a fabulous view of the river.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always interested in knowing which celebrities are local to the area. And Richmond is FULL OF THEM. If you’re lucky enough, you might catch a glimpse of Tom Hardy and Sir David Attenborough. If you’re not that lucky, you might see some influencers posing.

Peter Rabbit Christening Cake at Richmond Hill - The most gorgeous Peter Rabbit themed christening cake based on the classic eponymous character loved by children and adults alike.
Lemon Cake at Richmond Park - We had a cute picnic with our newly improved lemon and raspberry cake delivered to Richmond, washing it down with lemonade and daiquiris. Setting up a stylish picnic is super easy! Have a look at how I did ours with some very easy props.
Pink Sweetheart Birthday Cake in Richmond - Whilst I'm quiet on social media, we've been baking up a storm in the bakery with our extraordinary birthday cakes, voted as the best in London over and over again. Freshly baked, and delivered straight from our bakery to Richmond.
DeliciouslyStella Birthday Cake in Richmond - Possibly one of the most beautiful parts of London, and somewhere where I'm lucky to call "home" - Richmond-upon-Thames, and with our new cake delivery service to Richmond
