The opening of Scott’s Richmond marks the beginning of a new chapter, and the scene is set for a decadent new narrative.

Sited on a westward meander of the Thames, some 15 winding river miles upstream of central London, Scott’s is roaring into the town in a burst of champagne fizz, with a cocktail of old-world elegance and glamorous destination dining. With a stately terrace for al-fresco feasting on the banks of the Thames, an opulent Champagne and crustacean bar and a glittering dining hall set across two floors.

Smartly waist coated staff are prepped to weave among sweeping banquettes of linen-clad tables, bearing silver platters to awaiting guests – at Scott’s the service is as exceptional as the food.
