This restaurant looks fairly unassuming from the outside but as soon as you walk in you know you are somewhere special. The staff are all lovely and can not do enough to make your meal a wonderful experience. The menu is a set cost for 3 course and the value on offer is amazing. The wine menu is extensive and...

We have been here a number of times, and each time it has been a lovely experience. We save it for more special occasions. The staff are lovely and helpful, always pleasant and the food never disappoints. Interesting, varied and delicious.

It was a bit of a trek to The Glasshouse from Kent & Buckinghamshire but my goodness - really, really worthwhile. The service, from arrival to our departure was spot on - just enough to make sure you had everything you needed but not so in your face that it was overwhelming. These people really knew that we'd come for... More

I've been to the Glasshouse a number of times and it never fails to impress. The finest ingredients, well cooked, good service and great wines.

It was not good at all. Bred English mushy. Fish over cooked very dry. Hardly no sauce. Un tasty. Very disappointing. Just 2 poor scallop fighting to breath. I do not recommend. I am French I love food. This is not to the standard and reviews are over rated.

Had a very lovely evening at this restaurant. The food is very tasty and very well presented. The service and attention to detail from the staff is exceptional. Topping up your wine glass as soon as it is empty and folding your napkin whilst you visit the facilities, are services you normally only get in big city high class restaurants.... More

We dined here Sunday lunch time. The food, service and ambiance were all first class. Without a doubt one of the best meals I have had. Can't wait to return. Many thanks to all of the staff.

Following a last minute cancellation we managed to get a table at the back near the kitchen and bar. The service was impeccable. We started with the Orkney scallops and roast duck with both dishes well presented and very tasty. I had the Rib of Welsh beef, although cooked to perfection I found to be a little tough. The accompanying... More

The sun broke through the clouds as we traveled on the District Line to Kew Gardens. There always seems to be good weather when we eat at this restaurant, flooded with natural light. For starters, we both had ballotine of rabbit wrapped in very tasty pancetta, with Dijon mustard, caramelized kohlrabi and lovage cream. The rabbit meat was beautifully moist... More

Impressive menu. Food presenation was excellent and very interesting. Service was good without being overbearing. Unfortunately I found the prices of wines excessive and the cheapest wine (at £32 including service) was to me almost undrinkable.
