Literally The Prettiest Place For Lunch On A Sunny Day In London

share on:

We can’t actually believe we haven’t heavily featured this place before, but here it finally is: the beautiful Petersham Nurseries. This Insta-perfect restaurant brings the outside in, literally.

If you’re ever in Richmond Park on a sunny Sunday afternoon, we’re pretty sure you’re going to want to take a short trip to this nature lover’s paradise.

Take a seat in their sun-drenched greenhouse…

Or soak up the sun in their perfect pergola…

Petersham Nurseries have been Insta-goals since they reopened in 2004, transformed from a little local garden centre into a stunning restaurant/teahouse/shop combo that had Londoners flocking to visit. You can opt to grab a classic cup of coffee and a cake in their charming greenhouse Teahouse, or go for a slightly more formal affair at their award winning the restaurant, The Café.

Don’t worry too much about planning a visit to fit in with the weather though, because it’s still beautiful rain or shine, and you’ll be protected from the elements inside their cosy greenhouses. And there’s definitely something soothing about the acoustics of rain on glass, isn’t there?

It’s hydrangea heaven:

And their food doesn’t look half bad, either.

You can even pick up a few homeware ‘souvenirs’ while you’re there.

Serious interior-inspo.

This place is actual goals.

  1. Yes and no.

    Starter: Amazing! Yes!
    Mains: dismally unimpressive
    Dessert: my gran could have done better

    Plus a £1 charge added to the £145 bill for the tap water they gave us…um, I don’t think so. A great pity !
