We enjoyed our outdoor table while the kids played with the pet rabbits. Food was great, service was friendly and we enjoyed a long lunch after visiting Rabbit Island.

A great stop for coffee but visit the rest of the complex for fresh local vegetables, cheese, plants and crafts. The cafe is spacious and has good outdoor areas too, friendly service.

Big breakfast was generous. White chocolate and raspberry muffin delicious. Very busy but service was not compromised. A very popular place with indoor and outdoor dining. A lovely spot with very friendly wait staff. Thank you

The food is always consistently good here at TGE and plenty to choose from. The outdoor setting in the gardens is lovely for a family get together over lunch or afternoon tea (the cakes and deserts are to die for).

We visited today with three adults and two children and all were happy! The kids menu includes “proper” nutritious food such as meatballs with house made sauce. My husband’s bacon was over cooked and he won’t order that again but my chicken roulade and nana’s...More
