Why Richmond?

The Ivy Cafe, Richmond is an all-day dining British restaurant open seven days a week. Beautifully located near the river Thames and a few moments from Richmond Park, the restaurant features a private dining room and a bar, offering relaxed yet sophisticated dining. It has a casual neighbourhood feel, with a strong local appeal and loyal regulars, which means they hold back a proportion of tables for walk-ins, allowing locals to drop in throughout the day. Whether visiting for a leisurely breakfast, working lunch, cocktails with friends, or a three-course dinner, The Ivy Café, Richmond adds to the sophistication and charm of the already iconic Richmond.
