Roz Ana, Kingston

On an unassuming roundabout on Kingston Hill is the lovely Roz Ana, a chic restaurant and bar, which offers regional specialities from India. Stand-outs include a Goan-style pork belly vinha d’alhos and Southern Indian mooplah beef curry. And don’t miss the crispy soft shell crab with toasted coconut.

With a prime spot on Kingston’s riverside, Chakra has gorgeous views from the terrace and an opulent interior. Dine on the likes of delicious spiced king prawns and lamb shank nihari, or try the vegan menu for Indian with a twist.

The Dysart, Petersham

Inside a beautiful arts and crafts building, the Dysart offers modern and sophisticated cooking showcasing stunning ingredients. Suppliers are carefully chosen, and there is a ‘nose to tail’ and ‘root to stalk’ ethos.


The Petersham Hotel, Petersham

You can come in the daytime and gaze out at ‘that view’ over Petersham Meadows and down to the Thames but equally we enjoy the night-time vibe which manages to be both casual and refined. It is also an excellent spot for afternoon tea.

Al Forno, Kingston

This homely welcoming Italian is a great spot for a summer evening and serves excellent pizza and pasta dishes. We also love the Neapolitan street food starter of arancini, frittatine and croquette.


SMOK’D at The Grey Horse

This is a meat-eater’s heaven with all kinds of ribs, joints and burgers all barbecued to perfection. We would go to the ends of the earth for its beef short rib. Fortunately, we only have to go down the road. There’s cocktails and a huge whisky bar too.

Cappadocia, Kingston

This Turkish restaurant opposite Kingston station has expanded massively over the years to cater to its growing fan base. The grilled meats are stunning as is the home-made bread. If you can’t decide, a mixed meze plate is a great way to sample some of the delicious dishes on offer.


No. 97, Surbiton

A sleek and contemporary space, No 97 is a restaurant and gin bar with local and seasonal food served in a friendly atmosphere. There’s a great weekend brunch menu too.

Al Boccon di’vino, Richmond 

This eccentric restaurant in Richmond has no menu and a party vive. Expect fantastic Venetian dishes with incredible pasta, meats, cheeses and a main course served with great fanfare!
