This is on the north side of Kew Bridge, and houses the worlds largest collection of 'steam pumping' machines.
In high summer the main lake is buzzing with wildlife...birds, fish, dragonflies...all at the hight of activity.
To the west of the gardens is this view, across the Thames, of Syon House, which is worth a visit for its Butterfly House and Ornamental Gardens...
Light, airy, contemporary, cosy.
Crisp white tableclothes and cheerful, helpful staff and exquisite food make this a great destination for a grown up lunch before strolling around the grounds of Kew Gardens.
Favorite Dish: I had a crispy Seabass on a bed of gremolata.
