I was really looking forward to eating at Petersham Nurseries as I'd heard great things about it. I was excited to finally get the opportunity to do so, as part of a relative's birthday lunch, but unfortunately it was, overall, a disappointing experience. First, though, the good parts. The room - effectively a big, heated greenhouse populated with bric-a-brac and... More

I had learned about Petersham Nurseries from my friend, and it is such a beautiful place for all sorts of meal occasions - girly lunch, romantic date, family outing, it works for all! It has two eating areas - the cafe and the teahouse. The cafe is serviced, slightly more pricey, and has different food options. Reservations are required, and... More

Booked a Sunday lunch here in November - birthday treat - and it was well worth it. Good food well-cooked, attentive staff, celeb spotting, lovely wine, fabulous leafy surroundings. Like lunch in a very posh greenhouse complete with shabby chic distressed things. Overall good value for money and will return.

So this is the thing with me. I don't mind paying £30 for a main course but it has to be worth it. The service has to match the food. The ambience has to match the service and the food. It's very frustrating but apart from unique interior, this place is quite average. Good quality ingredients but the food is... More

This is a unique venue in London that everyone must visit! Beautiful space, especially in the summer! Both the cafe and the restaurant have great food and lovely people work there.

We stopped off here on a bike ride for tea and cake in the cafe. There were lots of choices which all looked great, although it is quite expensive. There are lots of places to sit, either outside or inside in the greenhouses.

We recently enjoyed a Sunday lunch at Petersham Nurseries and have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting is great - think colonial-esque green house. The service was quick and friendly although not the most personable - perhaps due to the sheer amount of service staff they seem to employ. Our risotto and pappardelle starers were well cooked, high... More

I took my wife for a birthday lunch to Petersham nurseries and we enjoyed the food and the experience very much. First off, the location and setting is very unique - the nursery and cafe (which is a heated glass house) are tucked away overlooking a vast field and you will forget you are in a city. The staff were... More

My party of 3 ate at the restaurant. It was the first time we'd ventured into the restaurant and it blew us away. (NB - the coffee shop is separate entity in the same venue). It was a bright autumnal day and we arrived early and we're sat immediately. Questions asked and answered about the menu we settled in to... 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.
