Petersham Nurseries

After months of drooling over the menu online, i finally found a fitting occasion to visit Pertersham Nurseries...the man's b'day = yummy meal for me as well! I immediately fell in love with the place, with its eclectic look of old English colonial meets country cottage. Then there was the food...simple, fresh and incredibly delicious, whilst incorporating all the wonderful produce growing on the grounds. The refined yet relaxed feel of the restaurant was pretty cool too. It's not often that a Michelin star and welly wearing diners collide, but it seems to work really well here! After a long, lazy, wine fuelled lunch, a walk around the nursery was much needed and resulted in me falling in lust with pretty much everything in their gorgeous shop. Oh, and just so you know, there is a lovely meadow nearby, perfect for a drunken afternoon snooze!
