Yesterday I visited Petersham Nurseries in Richmond.
They knew I was coming.
I am currently under par but really wanted to visit while the dahlias were still out.
My friend Louise and I ate lunch from the famous Skye Gyngell’s kitchen.
The interesting thing about Petersham is almost everyone has a dog with them and that was no exception in the restaurant. Personally I would rather have a dog at the next table than a small child so I didn’t have a problem but it was almost like being in France where dogs seem to be allowed anywhere.
Bread and water
The other thing that we both noticed was how most of the visitors looked very similar…30 something’s who didn’t have many facial expressions…..
I chose the pork
I was very inspired by the artistic overview – someone of incredible taste has created a beautiful oasis.
Very tasteful facilities
I would say however it is a restaurant with a bit of a garden centre rather than the other way round.
