Picture of Star & Garter, Putney, London

Star & Garter, Putney (Bar / Restaurant)

Picture of Fish! Kitchen, Barnes & Sheen, London

Fish! Kitchen, Barnes & Sheen (Restaurant)
“A good local addition to the dining roster in the East Sheen and Richmond area with an appealing range of dishes from hearty fish and chips to more exotic choices such as lobster or swordfish. The fish is fresh and artfully presented. Dessert isn’t the best but a modern, clean decor and friendly service make this a worthwhile spot for dinner out.”
