For those seeking the ultimate luxury dining experience at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Spring Garden is where you need to be. This popup restaurant is discreetly located within an area of the Chelsea Flower Show that is roped off and manned by an attentive security guard.

It is here, in Spring Garden at Chelsea Flower Show, that the VIPs can relax and escape prying eyes to enjoy the very best luxury dining experience available.

Spring Garden is situated in a dappled woodland area of the Royal Hospital grounds. The trees automatically afford a certain degree of concealment, but extra measures are in place to ensure maximum privacy for all guests.

Spring Garden is a popular spot for global corporations to entertain their high-net-worth clients, with many of the leading banks and family offices reserving private areas. Faces from the Sunday Times Rich List have been pictured at Spring Garden throughout this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show and they have been thoroughly enjoying the delights of the restaurant.
