Eat & Drink
Dining at The Bingam is a Michelin-starred experience. Chef Shay Cooper uses the best and freshest regional produce for modern takes on traditional favourites. Start off with the roast quail with pickled mushrooms and caramelised fois gras, then move on to the succulent saddleback pork with barbecue beans and smoked potato, or beef Wellington with a tangy mushroom sauce. Sunday roasts are a big favourite here, too.
Scrummy desserts include pear and plum tart with ginger ice cream and the signature Bingham trifle of Muscat jelly, mandarin sorbet and orange blossom Madeleines. Try and leave room for a nibble at the hotel’s famous cheese board, or pop in here for afternoon tea with home made scones.
Buffet breakfast – everything from smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to the full English – is served until 10am.
Available morning and evening.
See & Do
Soak up life on the riverbank with a boat ride along the Thames – or sit with a glass of Pimm’s at a riverside pub and watch life on the water. Richmond is a great base for excursions to Hampton Court Palace, one time seat of Henry Vlll and scene of many a lusty liaison, or the sights and scents of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. You can go riding or walking in nearby Richmond Park (spot the herds of red deer) or hire a skiff and picnic along the riverbanks.
Holler for your favourite team at the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.
Get into the strawberries and champagne lifestyle at Wimbledon – and watch some tennis while you’re at it.
Go green fingered at the big Hampton Court Flower Show.
