Superb Service as usual

Four of us dined on Saturday 30 th Jan, table 24. I mention the table number so that the young lady who looked after us so well throughout our dinner can take her well deserved credit for a job well done. I think her name was Sara. So, to the rest of the experience. As always at the Walled... read more

I have always enjoyed the Walled Garden but have noticed the standards seem to have slipped over the past few months. Last night was a prime example. I had arranged to go with a friend on my Hi Life card and had booked the previous week. We arrived on time and were told the table was currently being relaid and... More

I stayed at the Barton Grange for an extended period and had dinner at the Walled Garden Bistro several nights. The Bistro menu was a nice rotating choice and I very much enjoyed the nightly soups. The bread given with your meal is soft as a pillow! The staff was great and if I'm ever back in the area I... More

my wife and I visited the restaurant for the first time last week, on a friends recommendation, the food was good but the service could have been better, the restaurant was quiet but we seemed to wait along time for our drinks and food to be served when there was plenty of waiters/waitresses around, the table that we sat at...

Firstly I must just say that on Fridays there is live music and the artists work on a 4 week rota. On the evening we went there was a young man called Will Lewis playing a clarinet and he was wonderful, he made our evening. The menu is not huge but there is something for everyone. There was also a... More

When ordering our food, yes I'll admit, we were the fussy customers. But, we were ordering our toasted sandwiches (as we went for a birthday lunch) without asking for extras. Instead, asking for them without one of the components. For example, a beef sandwich without the onions. Surely this makes things easier? The girl taking our orders was huffing and... More

You will feel comfortable as soon as you walk into this bistro, a lovely venue with a nice lounge area and restaurant. Our luncheon recently was excellent and good value for money. A very pleasant dining experience.

Went here for our Christmas Day lunch. We booked end of September and we got the last table. Although it was expensive (£70pp) I wanted to ensure a good time with my family. I was not disappointed! The food was stunning - it was one of the best meals I have ever had! For my meal I had perfectly cooked... More

Our group of seven had a lovely meal here and the servers were really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and well presented. I'd also had afternoon tea here previously which was very nice. However, they need to sort out their confusing menu system. We were given the bistro menu but then after we had made our selections, we... More
