Twickenham is a suburban area and town in Greater London, lying on the River Thames 10.2 miles west-southwest of the centre of London. It has an extensive town centre and is famous as being the home of rugby union, with hundreds of thousands of spectators visiting Twickenham Stadium, the world's largest rugby stadium, each year. The historic riverside area is famous for its network of 18th-century buildings and pleasure grounds, many of which survive intact. This area has three grand period mansions with public access: York House, Marble Hill and Strawberry Hill House. Another has been lost, that belonging to 18th-century aphoristic poet Alexander Pope. Among these is the Neo-Gothic prototype home of Horace Walpole which has given its name to a whole district, Strawberry Hill, and is linked with the oldest Roman Catholic university in the country, St Mary's University, Twickenham.

The Bingham is Richmond's dining and drinking destination with one of the most picture perfect views of the River Thames. Head Chef, Andrew Cole, creates modern British biased dishes with fresh seasonal ingredients. Service is friendly and responsive in the capable hands of Ricardo Barros and his team. The bar serves authentic cool cocktails and aperitifs made from some of it's garden infusions, such as the Rose vodka. It's a great place for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and Sunday's where it opens from midday to 7.30pm for a long lazy lunch session. The bar is open from morning for coffee, tea and hot drinks and then by evening for drinks until the sun goes down.
We ate here last night and had the tasting menu, 5 courses for £50. We have visited the Bingham numerous times as it has always provided great service and delivered great food but have left feeling rather let down this time around. The starter of mackerel was nice but the accompaniment lacked flavour, the risotto was undercooked, the beef was chewy and lacked seasoning. The desserts were ok but we were already disappointed. The service was good, what you would expect from an establishment like the Bingham. There are many restaurants in Richmond offering better value for money.

A Cena restaurant is located just over the Richmond Bridge in East Twickenham. A fantastic local italian restaurant set in a warm, friendly, elegant but relaxed atmosphere with a menu that constantly changes to suit the changing seasons and ensuring only the freshest and best ingredients go into our dishes. The wine list is superb ranging from small, modest Italian Vineyards to some of the great names and vintages. A Cena means "at dinner" and is pronounced "Ah Chenna"
Saturday night, and the restaurant was full and lively. Tables well spaced. Great welcome from owner, Justine. There are lots of smart staff, who are helpful and on the ball. Menu reads very seasonally and appetisingly, with lots of veggie options too, and the results were delicious:including mozzarella with chick pea pancakes, lamb with mint salsa verde. Really inviting wine list, all Italian (a good sign in an Italian restaurant, obviously) with useful short descriptions; I asked for guidance and was not pointed to the most expensive.
Definitely going to return.

Set in a converted Victorian butchers shop, Le Salon Prive brings classic French cuisine to the leafy London suburb of St Margarets, Twickenham. A homely dining room swirled with relaxed Parisian style features intricate stained glass windows, wicker brasserie furnishings and rustic brickwork, while the seasonally changing menu offers French staples alongside elegant fine dining dishes.
Unknown to me this was the venue of my companions wedding meal 35 years ago. Although the restaurant has changed hands (many times?) The ambience remains the same. Careful restoration kept many features including stained glass windows. Indeed there are photos on wall celebrating filming of a Poirot episode with David Suchet. This French Bistrot style is carried over into the food. We enjoyed a three course meal courtesy of a travel zoo voucher. A restricted choice but we all found something we liked. Food was well cooked and presented and portions were good for this fine dining style. Out of Twickenham centre but very convenient for local station only a few minutes stroll. Will return again- definetly before another 35 years!!

We took our daughters to Chez Lindsay for an early evening meal. The food is Breton - perfect for family eating. The service is pitched just right attentive without being invasive. The girls felt grown-up but spoiled. They loved the crepes and sorbets. We enjoyed fish and crepes suzette. Well worth a visit if you are bored with corporate consistency.

A local institution - no menu, multi course meal, always popular. Don't bother bringing vegetarians. But a most enjoyable and tasty evening for omnivores, albeit a little on the pricey side. Expect to be surrounding by groups celebrating birthdays, and shell out around £75 a head inc. some wine. You won't leave hungry, and you'll get to see a pig's head with an apple in the mouth at your table - a dash of Henry VIII!

A freshly-decked al fresco area is a relaxed spot for summer dining. We are a friendly community pub with a modern and relaxed atmosphere offering delicious fresh food prepared daily. The conservatory, restaurant and bar areas are bright, modern and cosy. Serving fresh food in a stylish restaurant and bar. The Old Goat pub has been fully transformed into a Belgian and British gastropub in 2016. Brouge bar restaurant Esher is our newest sister restaurant.
excellent friendly young staff and good service
menu is a strange mixture of different things...thai curry, fajitas, burgers, moules, sunday roasts etc etc...it would be better sticking to being a belgian restaurant and cutting the menu right down
Food- average standard...over poweringly seasoned, watery sauces..not impressed tbh and would not be racing back

Opened in March 2009, Masaniello brings you traditional and authentic Italian cousin with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.In 2012 has been awarded from the Italian Chamber of commerce as Quality Approved Italian restaurants in the World
We went for dinner on Saturday evening. We shared starters- all delicious but particularly would recommend the grilled octopus. Main courses were steak, lemon sole, veal and a pizza. All of us were happy with our choices. The service was friendly as always. Definitely the best Italian restaurant in the area.
