I simply love this place! The menu is simple, but always fresh and delicious. Staff are friendly and welcoming. The interior is interesting and quirky. Love the interesting house plants on display and it is great to see the glass house renovation continuing. It is always a great pleasure to introduce people to this treasure and all my guests have always loved it and in turn brought their own guests here. Visit!!! And don't forget to see the old melon house with the succulent collection!

The Walled Nursery cafe is not only charming but also provides some of the most delicious lunches I had in a very long time. You get four choices. But four choices created with great care and skill!

If you are in the neighbourhood definitely go there!

The Nursery is excellent - wonderful Victorian greenhouses, interesting plants. Food on the stodgy side.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we're sorry you didn't enjoy our café so much, we like to think that we offer simple, healthy meals....in fact the opposite of stodgy! We're pleased that you enjoyed your visit overall. All the best, Monty and Emma

Having been to petersham nursery in Richmond on Saturday where every sense is tantalised, I felt the same feeling upon arrival here! It was raining as we took our seats near the log fire in the Vinery. The sense of snugness was wonderful with the rain beating on the glass! Everything was right.
The menu was simple and uncluttered, but with something to please us each. Just lovely. Cleanly presented, fresh, tasty and unusual. We could’ve stayed all day in there!
The greenhouses and plant centre were a joy as was the shop and even the loos!! One can tell a lot about a place by the state of the loos, so 10 out of 10 all round!
Have already told a host of friends and family about this treasure!

Thank you for leaving us this lovely review....it was a grotty, wet day but our customers still came in droves and this makes all of our hard work so worth while. To get a review like this is the icing on the cake....we really appreciate it. Happy Easter Monty and Emma

An amazing location in one of the 13 glasshouses they are restoring in their 2 acre walled garden nursery. So wonderful to see such a rare collection of Victorian glasshouses finally being restored to their former glory. The cafe was a lovely warm oasis on a cold February day, when really it’s too early to be able to get out into your own garden. A really nice quirky design layout of the interiors of their glasshouses being used for their lovely nursery, shop and cafe. We stopped for afternoon tea and cake, finding the cafe busy with log burning stoves keeping everyone snug and a great choice of excellent cakes. We would definitely visit again anytime we are in that area.
