I'm trying to restore all my content. On boot I press & hold Cmd ⌘ R .
This takes me to the Internet Recovery option, yet I want to restore from my Time Machine backup.
What could be the problem?

If the drive is completely empty & doesn't even have a recovery partition, then the Mac will automatically go to Internet Recovery if you hold Cmd ⌘ R at boot.
To prevent this, hold the Opt ⌥ key at the chimes & choose your Time Machine volume to boot from. You should then find the option to Restore from Time Machine Backup.
