This wonderful, almost churchlike place with stone walls and an open fire is a great pub facing Richmond Park’s Petersham entrance. Best of all are the evening jazz and classical recitals (first Sunday of the month; check the website for details). Live music also plays in the restaurant for diners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
Families are made to feel welcome, the food is very good, and the large terrace is packed on a warm afternoon. Take bus 65 from Richmond tube or train stations.
