Petersham Nurseries Cafe @ Richmond, London * 優雅で美しい自然に囲まれる、木漏れ日のレストランでナチュラルなガーデンランチ

Away from the busy urban heart of London, Richmond is the perfect place for a mini day trip. It’s just 20 minutes from central London and is full of classical shopping streets, as well as rich, beautiful nature.


Richmond has been one of my favourite destinations in London since I visited this place for the first time to see Richmond Park. My new favourites – possibly even my new number one – is Petersham Nurseries.


It’s located 20 minutes walk from Richmond station, with a fantastic view of the River Thames and a little meadow with cows (depending on the season). You could go by bus or by car, but it’s such a nice stroll that I would recommend you to walk.


Petersham Nurseries is a garden centre with a fancy restaurant and cafe attached. They have just opened a branch in Covent Garden as well as their original Richmond shop. I have not been to the one in Covent Garden but I assume nothing can compare with the peaceful atmosphere that Richmond creates.


The restaurant serves ‘slow food’, cooked with flavourful herbs and ingredients. Everything I had here tasted fantastic. It was our anniversary lunch. They had plenty of options for wine, but we decided on sparkling lime and elderflower cordial to toast this amazing natural setting.


I picked John Dory fish for my main, as well as chocolate and olive oil ice cream for pudding. Not only the taste of the food, but the presentation of each dish, were very beautiful and made each menu item truly special.
Feeling ‘komorebi (dappled sunlight filtering thourhg the leaves)’ with natural tasting food, was so dreamy.


The shop in the greenhouse displays a variety of goods such as cups, plates, candles, face cream and chandeliers. The items were all well curated to match the image Petersham Nurseries represents. You will start wanting everything if you like their aesthetic of leisurely elegant, rich lifestyles.


They sell flowers and plants as well. We decided to bring a cute potted cactus and rosemary back to our flat. They will become great reminders of this fantastic anniversary afternoon we spent at Richmond.

Booking is essential for Petersham Nurseries Cafe that we visited which offers the more formal dining experience. Alternatively, the Teahouse next door is more casual and you can just turn up on the day.
