“Not a great first time visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Despite having lived in Monmouth for 9 years and a regular Millbrook visitor I decided not to head off to my preferred garden centre lunch venue at Raglan and try the Red Door. On another day I may have come away with a different impression. Today was busy but not overly so, with lunchtime tables available inside and out. We had a 30 minute wait for 2 sandwiches and chips. Drinks however came straightaway. Sadly the bread was dry, the bacon in the BLT chewy and despite a polite reminder, no vinegar appeared for the chips.

It looks a good spot and seems to feature well in Best in Monmouth so we'll have to try again and hope for better results. Certainly it's a popular spot and easy parking.

We are sorry that your first visit was not as enjoyable as you, and indeed us, would have liked. The day you visited was particularly busy and, as all of our meals are prepared freshly to order in the sequence that they are placed, a delay can unfortunately occur although we generally pride ourselves in a general turn around time of between 10 and 15 minutes. We hope that you will not be put off by your first experience.

“Give it a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

A bit out of the way - in the Millbrook Garden Centre. Cakes all seem home made, tea and coffee hot and well made and service is always with a smile. A range of lunches are on offer although we have not eaten there so cannot comment on their quality although they look jolly good!!

“A Fantastic little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This Diner is situated in a Garden Centre and as we had not had breakfast, decided to try it.
The bacon was thick and delicious, eggs soft and runny, with a golden yolk and everything else that goes with a cooked breakfast, was cooked to perfection.
It's a small place, but they can cater for larger parties(busloads?) in a separate room. Everywhere was spotless and bright and the people couldn't have been more helpful and even suggested places to visit locally.
We were staying at a Travelodge about 3 miles away, with nowhere to eat nearby, but a pub (not great), so we breakfasted here for four days and each day the food standard was high.
If we are ever in the area again, we will definately be eating here.
