The first thing to say is that if you don’t like the idea of eating in a dry-mud floored conservatory that looks like a Homebase garden section with tables, then this probably isn’t the place for you – because that’s exactly what it looks like.  The reason being that it is set within an upmarket garden centre, labelled as a café, but in fact is a restaurant which people book well in advance to gain a table because of its original and quirky concept.

The food on my visit was fresh, simple and frankly enjoyable.  My only criticism was that perhaps the dishes were a little too simple for the accolade and I am in danger of agreeing with the Michelin guide on the demotion to just being in the guide at time of writing (2105).  However, it remains a quirky and fun option to go for within SW London; diners should simply expect a 20 minute walk from the river trying to find it or in need of a taxi that knows exactly where it is in order to make the journey pain-free.  Definitely worth a bite, but only if it fits in with your timetable or visit there.
