If you are looking for a wander around one of the most beautiful, secret gardens of London, followed by a light lunch of seasonally sourced ingredients and a glass of something well chilled – Limpet Barron & David Hughes’ Tangerine Dream Cafe in the Chelsea Physic Garden is for you. Polished service, fine wine and set menus it is not (although restaurant Gordon Ramsay is just around the corner). This is a quintessentially British escapism, with slightly disorganised, yet freshly prepared food, which you can enjoy al fresco whilst overlooking London’s oldest botanical gardens. Still one of the capital’s best hidden gems… – Harry Fawkes
