From plant-filled urban jungle living rooms to tiny windowsill gardens, us Londoners know a thing or two about fitting foliage anywhere we can squeeze it. And that doesn’t stop with our one-bedroom flats. From gardens in the sky to enchanted forest dining, London’s restaurants really don’t disappoint when it comes to getting our green fix.

Whether you’re looking for lush greenery with a view, or a greenhouse café draped in jasmine, here are 13 brilliant plant-filled restaurants in London to feed your plant obsession… and feed yourself while you’re at it.

Sky Garden

Renowned for its world-class views across London, the Sky Garden is first and foremost, well, a garden. Boasting exotic greenery, foliage and palm trees, our top tip for plant-lovers is to head here just before sunset. Grab a cocktail, settle in, and watch the sun go down over the city in one of London’s most stunning leafy surroundings.
