Sitting amongst Catleya and other orchids, quaint little tables, real china cups and teapots, delicious warm scones with jams, this is an almost private little getaway from the world. You walk through the most amazing botanical garden inside a giant greenhouse then past a pond...More

Came here with some friends on our lunch break. Nice setting on the grounds of the Parkwood Estate. Limited lunch menu but it was more about the atmosphere for me. Only open during the warm weather and likely weather permitting. Prices were slightly more that...More
