Our bar promises to make your evenings even more exciting with live music, DJ performances and entertainment. Inspired by nature and evolving with the seasons, the thoughtfully curated cocktails are made using botanicals, herbs and edible flowers.

The decor at La Goccia Bar draws inspiration from Petersham Nurseries’ horticultural heritage and understated grandeur. A striking centrepiece, the bar in La Goccia is made entirely from a variety of real leaves, individually hand cast in bronze. The bar allows for casual seating, lounging and dancing if desired.

Ethos of Our Food

Provenance

Being one of the pioneers in the slow food movement, we celebrate traditional methods of growing quality ingredients. This ethos has flowed into building relationships with organic British suppliers and sourcing responsibly from small like-minded producers, including our own farm – Haye Farm Devon. Bringing the very best organic and sustainably produced meat and vegetables straight from the farm to our kitchens.

Seasonality

With our menus being refreshed through the season, our chefs only use produce which is at its peak. Most ingredients are British first, while some speciality ingredients are sourced from Italy – such as Parmesan, White Truffles, Olive Oil and Vanilla pods. As we are so seasonally led, the colours of the plate naturally reflect the changing view outside.

Simplicity

Our offering is simple in so far as we don’t seek to change an ingredient’s essence in any way. We are classicists. When we have beautiful produce, well grown and correctly sourced, we use them in our recipes in the simplest way to bring out their natural favour and beauty.

The Petersham Family

Team

Headed by our Executive Chef Lorenzo Gagliardi, our kitchen teams are constantly working with producers to evolve our menus with the seasons. La Goccia’s Head Chef, Catarina Almeida, delivers elevated classic Italian Cicchetti sharing plates in the fast-paced open kitchen in Floral Court.
