This is an exceptional restaurant. It is open for tea and lunch during the week, and on Thursday and Friday evenings it is open for dinner. The menu has a variety of offerings. The electric decor is like no other, and it provides a very intimate dining experience. The food is nothing short of terrific!

It was nice to have this semi-private space reserved for the 6 family members. The small bites of multiple sandwich choices was both delicious... More

Really enjoyed my lunch today at the Garden Gate Tea Room. The menu is excellent and the food is really good - and really reasonable. I had the salmon which was a big portion & tasted fantastic. Just a pity I dont live near this Tea Room or I would become a frequent visitor!
