3 Church Road, Teddington, TW11 8PF [Map]
In the heart of Teddington, just off Broad Street, Al Borgo is a family run Italian restaurant that aims to offer the cuisine with a 'modern twist'. Spread across an elongated room and a patio, the décor is pleasant and unfussy and the interior is marked by neatly arranged tables with white linen and a well-stocked bar.
Head-chef Massimiliano Grandi and his team infuse creativity into the cooking and you could expect to see starters such as mixed fried fish and courgettes, culatello with glazed fig and saffron rice crouton and veal carpaccio with rocket and radish salad. Amongst the mains, homemade gnocchi baked with fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil share the stage with pan-fried calf liver with butter and sage, pan-fried squid or sea bass fillet in potato crust. Simple desserts such as apple strudel and chocolate salami feature along with more fancy ones including the likes of white chocolate soufflé or rasberry tarte with gratinated zabaglione.
3 Victoria Road, Teddington, TW11 0BB [Map]
The Bloated Mallard is a chic pub and restaurant that has retained its Victorian charm with open fires and hand pumps that serve three real ales. The Teddington venue is lovely to spend an evening in with good food and wine in a lively atmosphere or a lazy Sunday afternoon listening to soothing jazz in front of a roaring log fire.
Choose to spend time in the restaurant or head to the bar for a more casual dining experience and catch up with friends over sharing dishes of baked camembert or a plate of nachos.
The kitchen endeavours to create simple, honest homemade food using fresh seasonal produce. Lunchtime dishes could include beer battered fish and chips, Barbary duck, steak sandwiches, burgers and seared tuna steak niçoise while Chef Matthew's sea bass fillets with red pepper salsa, rarely fail to please at dinnertime.
The pub's function room can accommodate up to 70 people and hosts parties, weddings and other special occasions.
11 Waldegrave Road, Teddington, TW11 8LA [Map]
Pizza Express remains a hugely popular bedrock of casual eating. Its popularity is testimony to the fact that across the country, they have restaurants where you will always be guaranteed a good nosh, with children's tastes being well catered for.
Pizza Express has gone even more Roman, and following the success of that particular example of listening to their public have introduced Romana pizzas, including the scorching Etna and the hearty Siciliana.
These pizzas are now thinner, bigger and crispier, and if that sounds like a marketing line, it is. However, unlike many such lines, this one is true, and their quality is always consistent, though cleverly they have still managed to retain a homemade feel to their pizzas.
As an alternative to pizza, try their pollo pesto - cavatappi pasta with torn chicken breast, mushrooms, red onions and mozzarella in a creamy gruyere, parmesan and pesto sauce and finished with grana padano - or the niçoise salad with mixed leaves, yellowfin tuna, free range egg, green beans, potatoes and tomatoes with olives, anchovies, capers and house dressing.
Many of the big chains have come a long way, and Pizza Express is certainly amongst them. One of the first to be quoted on the Stock Exchange - in 1993 - Pizza Express is not a franchise operation and retains tight control through its own staff.
Their wine list - though short - contains some surprisingly good offerings, especially their intense Australian Chardonnay, and a big, full-bodied Merlot from Cusumano, Sicilia.

136 High Street, Teddington, TW11 8JB [Map]
Restaurant Noel embellishes their menu with the delicate flavours of French cuisine effortlessly, creating a charming destination for those who are looking for Gallic fare in Teddington High Street. Smart and stylish, this is a wonderful spot if you want to spend time with friends over a tasty meal, and their decor with its shades of browns and beiges is restful and provides a sense of serenity, helping you to slow down and enjoy everything that is placed before you.
Fresh, seasonal produce is used to create dishes of exceptional quality, some of which could include a starter of soused herring and leek salad with chardonnay vinaigrette followed ably by a main course of roasted cod with potato, chorizo, caper hash and saffron aioli. Finally, there could be a chocolate fondant with mint ice cream to finish. The wine list at Noel is varied, offering some interesting choices from the New and the Old World.
53 Broad Street, Teddington, TW11 8QZ [Map]
This is one of those places where relaxing atmosphere and good food blend to create a comfort zone that draws you back within its doors, time and again. Red Peppers, with outlets in Birmingham, Esher and Teddington, has unpretentious décor and friendly staff, and has become a lunch time favourite for many. In summer, you can sit outside and enjoy your meal on the terrace overlooking the canal.
The menu has a few international undertones with Thai and Mexican influences creeping in and starters such as small rack of baby back ribs or smoked mackerel pâté. But it is the pizzas there which hold the most appeal, with a range of at least eleven to choose from carrying toppings that include chicken fajita, goat's cheese and eggs Florentine. Desserts include sinful delights such as tiramisu and chocolate parfait while the Italian wines on their list are totally on the same wavelength.

3 Broom Road, Teddington, TW11 9NR [Map]
A charming riverside garden seating with an external fireplace, illuminated water bodies, chunky sleepers, 2 decking areas, an outdoor grill kitchen and hog roasts during summer sets this refurbished restaurant apart from its peers in the neighbourhood. Inside, sectioned areas attract diners who prefer a more intimate setting while enjoying their meals. The venue can be approached by boat and at the rear there is a mooring with a shingle beach.
The menu focuses on dishes comprising fresh fish, oysters and mussels as specialties. Barbeque favourites include the ploughman with ham, cheese and pickles and venison burgers and hungry anglers can gorge on bread and butter pudding and apple crumble.
