Petersham nurseries café

    The Petersham Nurseries Café is quite simply, one of the most enchanting restaurants in Greater London. Charmingly casual, yet sophisticated, this little oasis is just 10 minutes from central Richmond in the leafy suburb of Ham, Henry VIII’s old stomping ground!

    It is a captivating place, set within a stunning vintage glasshouse. It calms you down and helps you reconnect with nature. The air is subtly scented by the jasmine and bougainvillea hanging from the roof; the tables and chairs are an eclectic mishmash of shabby chic antiques, and although not terribly comfortable, they are indeed beautiful and add to the unique style of the café!

    The cafe is a bastion of slow-cooked delights (actually in 2015 they won the “Best Slow Food Restaurant/Eatery” at the SF London Awards). Everything is seasonal with Italian inspiration. The menu is simple, yet delicious. It changes regularly and usually features around five starters, mains and desserts. It is priced at the higher end, but the dishes reflect that value in their quality and quantity.

    We enjoyed creamy Mozzarella di Bufala with the most delicious tomatoes I’ve ever eaten. The leg of lamb was well cooked and ridiculously flavoursome; the mackerel salad simply charming. When does one ever get to call mackerel salad charming? When dining at Peterham Nurseries, that’s when!

    The staff was efficient and fun; you could tell they enjoyed serving this quality of food. We can not recommend this captivating place highly enough! The cafe is open every day for lunch and has evening supper clubs throughout the year.
