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.

Lovely place to eat, albeit somewhat expensive

A beautiful and unusual setting for a meal. We had lunch here: 3 courses with glass of wine and both food and wine were delicious.

Very attentive and helpful staff, although not convinced that it justified the "discretionary" 12.5 percent service charge. Wasn't going to argue that point in front of people however. At just over £70/head for lunch, it's... More

We came here as a family group and we're delighted with all aspects of this place. The menu was comprehensive and interesting with an emphasis on fresh ingredients. Starters and bread for dipping in very tasty olive oil were just right. Two of our party had monkfish, two pollock and one rabbit as mains - all were perfectly cooked and... More

Top tip, become a friend of Petersham before you eat and you can have the set menu prices and order from the a la carte menu! Mainly a lunch place, you get a spectacular views over the River Thames on you way here. Walk here from Richmond and enjoy the views, also bring your dog as they are dog friendly... More

I love Petersham Nurseries, the venue is a special place with a beautiful interior and a fantastic atmosphere. The food focuses on good combinations of fresh ingredients (of a very high quality ) served in a relaxed yet attentive manner. The wine accompanying the meal was fantastic (recommend the Prosecco with rose petals). I have been here several times and... More

This restaurant has often been recommended and we knew it was considered to be a bit special. The setting was lovely and made the bumpy ride up the unmade track worthwhile! The food was certainly good and well presented, although the main courses were not quite as wonderful as we were expecting. But it was an occasion and one to... More

This nursery with all that it has to offer is a cut above the rest in every aspect. There is obviously a very well traines artistic hane behind this exceptional attraction - especially geared to the connoiseur of fabulous plants and ideas around exquisite gardens

I took a client here in December 2015. The place was nice and the food good but we had two mains, a side dish, three drinks and a coffee and the bill was £97.31. I felt a little robbed, if I'm honest. So go there is you aren't worried about money but don't if you are.

The once mighty Michelin-starred greenhouse is a shadow of its former self but treat yourself to leaf tea and home made cakes at this lovely and popular spot.
