Lunch in London’s Prettiest Glasshouse

Lunch in London’s Prettiest Glasshouse

Nestled away in the back streets of Richmond lies beautiful Petersham Nurseries, a garden shop, teahouse and more surprisingly, a Michelin star restaurant. If you love being surrounded by nature then this will be your botanical heaven.

It’s taken nearly 5 years of me living around the corner from this beautiful spot to finally visit and I am so glad I did. What better way to brighten up a grey, rainy Saturday afternoon than eating amongst the foliage in Petersham Nurseries Glasshouse restaurant?

Decked out with rustic antique furniture and fragrant flora, you are transported to a calm oasis as soon as you step inside. Not only do the team use the plants to create a lovely atmosphere, they also celebrate plants in their cooking.

Using seasonal herbs and vegetables to influence their menu, you can expect fresh, flavoursome dishes with a little Italian inspiration. And the plates that are dished up will be as pretty as your surroundings.

To start with Tom and I shared mozzarella covered with chilli, oregano and orange which was lovely and ideal to share if you wanted something light and refreshing. As I am writing this I am getting craving for it again!! Cue mouth-watering.

For mains, something a little more comforting was ordered – delicious pumpkin risotto with gorgonzola dolce. It was the perfect dish for a rainy autumnal day. While Tom ordered turbot with fresh autumn leaves.

Overall Petersham Nurseries is ideal for any occasion in my opinion – whether it’s an afternoon with the family or you are after a romantic dinner spot for 2, it’s well worth a visit. I am already planning my next visit.
