Lovely meal, would recommend.

Ate here whilst on a 3 night stay in the area with family. Staff very attentive and friendly. Lovely restaurant. Food was good although being vegetarian I would like to see more veggie options. Slightly higher priced than the average meal but nevertheless enjoyable.

Visited this restaurant with my partner for "date night" after seeing the pictures on here. The menu choices were wide and varied. The food was delicious. They have Bistro menus where you can have 3 courses for under £20 or 2 courses for £15. The staff were friendly and attentive. Lovely atmosphere and chilled subdued environment. We had a lovely...

Took advantage of the exceptional Summer afternoon tea offer (2 for £10) and decided to treat my daughter on her birthday. After having visited a few weeks prior I knew the food and service should be exceptional. We were seated quickly and the afternoon tea did not disappoint. My only negative is that we were'nt asked if we wanted tea... More

Very good staff and excellent surroundings, with views across extensive gardens. The main menu is not extensive, but has a good selection, albeit a little on the pricey side. We visited on a Sunday and chose the special three course menu. This was first class and was good value for money. Having had such good value, we declined to return... More

Beautiful menu.. Very clean.. Service was spot on.. I had a fillet steak, it was awesome.. It's a little pricey, but it's a great place for a special occasion.

Enjoyable afternoon tea on the sunny terrace in the walled garden. The food was nice although the sandwiches had not been freshly made. The service was lacking slightly despite there being more staff than customers. Had to repeatedly ask for obvious things such as milk for the tea!! Overall though I would recommend to others good value at £13.50.

We have been frequent diners at the walled garden for many years. We particularly enjoyed the £15 for three courses bistro menu that was available up to 6.30pm each day except Friday (when it rose to £25 per head for the same menu but they just had a singer on too! Pricey...!). Anyway, this bistro menu has now been removed.....along... More

I used to come here regularly with my late Mother. Went last week with my Husband to sort of celebrate a year after her death as she really liked it there. So glad we went. The first glance at the menu and it seemed a tad expensive for lunch and we weren't that hungry; it being a hot day. We... More
