interesting venue and good food

This highly rated Michelin starred cafe (Restaurant) near Richmond in Surrey is very quirky as it is located in the middle of a garden centre and it has the feeling of a rustic farmhouse in France.

Super place to end up at after walk with kids from richmond and prounce around the nursery and finally have a slice of quiche with fresh salad. They only serve lunch from 12 even if it is all sitting there ready to be served from 1130. And forget about getting a good coffee. They only do filtered. Tea is the... More

Great food, average service. I'd hate to be here when it's busier than Thursday 14th May. The car parking, or lack thereof, is a bore, especially in the pouring rain. That said we went for the food and that was excellent. Small portions but adequate, wine was grossly overpriced. The beef fillet was a perfect piece of well hung meat,... More

My son and I were taking an after lunch walk along the Thames when he suggested a cup of tea at the nursery. What a very fine British Idea. We were too late for food (stops at 4} But still had time for a pot of tea (served until 5). Sitting at a nursery table looking at he flowers made... More

Visited the restaurant recently. Pretty surroundings! The food was outrageously priced and very small portions. We left feeling totally ripped off and hungry. £28 for a small piece of fish. Veg were extra! Parking a total nightmare. Will not be returning or recommending to friends.

Had been wanting to come to Petersham Nurseries for some time and finally went and was not disappointed. Lived up to it's reputation. Magical setting, excellent service, interesting flavours on the menu, possibly the best polenta I've eaten.....can't wait to go back in the very near future.

Great meal in a fantastic setting. Excellent food, well presented and the service was great without being overly fussy, much more enjoyable than the usual up-market restaurant dining experience. Most enjoyable lunch I've had in a long time and the best ever in a green house! Would highly recommend - and although relatively expensive I have given it 5 for... More

this is out of London about half an hour on the train and then a walk down the side of the river and across grass to get to ( be realistic about wearing shoes for a walk). It is just the most stunning place - and unexpected. It is based literally within a working nursery and so you walk through... More

We were there for lunch between vistits of Kew Gardens and the Hampton Court and on a lovely, sunny April Afternoon and it was a wonderfull experience. The location in a nice decorated - with a lot of plants and antiques - glass house is incredible, but for the price you pay the food was only ok. The lamb was... More

Description

The Petersham Nurseries Caf�� in west London is a pilgramage-worthy dining destination for every serious lover of great food. The dining room is set in a heated, plant-filled Victorian greenhouse with an earth floor, colourful artworks and mismatched vintage furniture. Loved by A-listers and hipsters alike, this is an idyllic place for lazy weekend lunches, discreet mid-week meals and super chic events. The short menu changes weekly - five starters, five main course dishes, simple desserts and one cheese - and the wine list includes some brilliant French and Italian labels. A true original, the Petersham Nurseries Caf�� is a must for all culinary thrill-seekers.
