As it is London, when the weather is good outdoors we flock, so Petersham Nurseries teahouse can be very busy and a little difficult to get a table. No need to despair, they have a great system to serving summer food quickly and easily &...More

We were really looking forward to this lunch visit, having planned a walk through Richmond Park before and savouring the luck of a booking. Although the picturesque surroundings of nursery were truly lovely - the food was not. It was a disheartening blend of poorly...More

Great Service and food set in a nursery. Certainly a great place to dine in a " Mediterranean" atmosphere. This can get very busy and it would be advisable to book before venturing out.

Food was great, although our asparagus starters were missing the parmesan (significant flavour in the dish). Unfortunately also it's just so so so over priced. Three course lunch, bottle of wine and glass of prosecco = £176!!!! Been once and won't go back...

Yes, the cafe is the same as restaurant. Alternatively, there's a teahouse option too where you can eat lunch or a cake. I is a bit cheaper, more spacious and doesnt require prebooking. It might get pretty busy on sunny days... More

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.
