Reunion with friends

As a group of six we had a lovely meal at the Walled Garden last Saturday. Great menu choices, well prepared food, lovely atmosphere and polite attentive staff. Well worth a visit. Seafood platter starter was excellent, also the mini sliders. Lamb main course was tender and full of flavour.

Been a few times with different people and never been disappointed. It's all served on a small wooden pic nic bench and the selection varies but always lovely and plenty of it. The surroundings are lovely and very relaxing.

Good quality food. Great service. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere. We go here quite a lot. It's great just to sit on the comfy sofas if you don't want to sit at a table.

4 women came here for afternoon tea on a Saturday afternoon. The sandwiches and cakes came out on a wooden bench type display, which looked good. We were served warm goats cheese fried ball which was very nice but everything else was standard and the sandwiches very disappointing. Dry bread with boring fillings; cheese and pickle, egg mayo and beetroot... More

We had Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner here staying in the attached hotel over a weekend and the food was fantastic, good quality product and very well presented. Never ever had afternoon tea but looked delightful and is served on a little picnic table!!!
