The Quince Tree is a kind of low rent version of The Petersham Nurseries. That fact that it occupies a greenhouse in the accessible (relative to Richmond) Clifton Nurseries in Little Venice means that if you squeeze in a light lunch here after a walk along the canals, you might as well be a thousand miles from London’s lunacy. In fact there’s barely anything here to remind you that you’re only a few minutes on a bus from Marble Arch. It’s equally good as a morning spot for a quiet coffee and a laptop session, although perhaps not ideal if you’re prone to summer allergies.
