“Character & Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have to say Rosehurst oozes character, charm and of course 'taste' in many ways. I met some friends there for lunch and was not disappointed. I had a simple open sandwich which bursted a complexity of flavors. The homemade refreshments were also a treat.

Service was great and of course the items on sale were just so tempting.

I will definitely go back there.

“Another world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Visiting Rosehurst is one of those treats for special occasions or just for a little lift when you need some inspiration. The old Victorian brick house has been filled to the brim with all manner of gifts and bric-a-brac for sale, but it is the tea garden which is special. Set against the lovingly tended back garden with its lawns, rosebeds and shrubs, the restaurant has light meals to tempt most palates. Try the scones, quiches,sandwiches, salads and the "Eton Mess", a luscious concoction of meringues and strawberries. While you relax and enjoy your meal the children can play on the lawn nearby. It is not really a place where large, outdoorsy men feel comfortable though!

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I love this restaurant and try to go back there every time that I'm in PMB! The garden is spectacular, the service relaxed and the food wonderful and creative. As soon as you enter, you feel like you have wondered into another world.
