A bit tired and underwhelming service 3*

We called in for a late breakfast after a meeting nearby. After waiting more than 10 minutes, eventually we had to go in search of someone to take our order. Also, there was some food on the floor by the table leaving us with a sense of the place as unkempt. hen it arrived the food and drink was... read more

Visited here with my wife at lunchtime and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The starters were very reasonablly priced the soup was good, mushrooms excellent, the mains were just the right amount without 'over facing' you. I had the Black Pudding which was great and I would definately have again. Great service, great ambience would visit again soon.

This is a lovely place to go for a meal. I went with a party of 6. Everyone had a different meal and they were all cooked beautifully. The restaurant has a selection of tables. Some are located in a nicer area than others. While you wait for your table and after your meal there is a comfortable area to... More

We went to The Walled Garden for Sunday Lunch and were not disappointed. We chose to dine from the menu - £15 for 3 courses.. The food was excellent and you couldn't fault the service, it really was great value for money.. we would definitely recommend a visit!

Treated ourselves to afternoon tea with friends, the food is served on miniature picnic benches which is quite unique, the food is ample and delicious and the service excellent. We have tried various venues in the past including the Hilton and found that apart from Betty's in Harrogate, the Walled Garden beat them all hands down.

I visited here a few weeks ago and things don't seem as they once were. We used to go to the walled garden quite a lot and the service was always spot on and the food was always excellent with a different menu everyday. It seems though that there has been a change in management recently though and all the... More

I have been going here for several years. The food is always excellent. Recently there have been staff changes and the level of service is not as good as it was. However it is a good place for a relaxing meal with good food and wine.

Having lived in Preston for nearly 30years The Walled Garden has consistently provided good quality food, a good selection of wines, attentive polite service in a wine bar/bistro setting. Never disappoints.

Had heard a lot of good things about this place but was extremely disappointed by the end of the night. Neither the location, atmosphere or food was anything particularly special and certainly didn't warrant the prices.
