Named after the gardens it graces, this restaurant has a Hamptons-meets-the-Highlands look that resembles a busy conservatory. Soumak rugs and the open kitchen framed by jars of preserved vegetable jars set the curated-homely tone for Matt Moran's tribute to garden-to-plate dining. Yes, you'll see  lamb from the Moran family farm, plus a seasonal map of the kitchen garden that supplies leaves, herbs and beets. Chiswick attracts a well-groomed crowd with a weakness for flavoursome, uncomplicated fare: roast chickens, sea-farmed barramund, slow-roasted fall-off-the-bone shoulders from those Moran lambs. Simple doesn't always mean predictable, either: honeycomb in the beet salad is a pleasant surprise, as is the zinginess of minty pea purée with the spanner crab. The venue has a happy buzz and the service is mostly snappy. Turn to the potent wine list, sit back and relax. Moran's 'country' hospitality delivers.
