This is a self service Debenhams style cafeteria, not a restaurant. I had the roast chicken with 'root vegetables' - this was 1 small chicken leg with coleslaw (the root veg I presume!) topped with some salad leaves. This cost £11.50.....I also had a small...More

This is a cafeteria style restaurant on the grounds of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. There is a lot of outdoor seating and some indoors as well. They serve lunches, teas, cakes, and wines and beer. Food quality is acceptable and can be quite...More

Unfortunately all the food was swimming in various sauce and non of the hundreds of fresh vegetables they have was available by 2.45. The left over of what it was did look terrible. Had to eat the sale and it was full of salty cheese

Excellent food. We have eaten at this restaurant many times. The food is fresh, uncomplicated and well catered for vegetarians (although I am not one). The chefs are always willing to accommodate some requests.

Long, slow moving queues for poor quality, expensive food and inadequate, dirty seating/tables. Bring a picnic or visit nearby cafes/restaurants first!

We visited on a Saturday afternoon toward the end of Sept 2015. Rugby World Cup was in full-swing so perhaps this explains the crowds ? Large hall, plenty of food-variety and plenty of seating in the pavillion at large [shared] tables. Dining experience was fine...More
