We visited after 18 months and were very sad to find the food at lunch time basic and no where near as nice as it had been in the past. The dumplings served with one main course were rock solid bullets- we left them all but no one picked up on this even after we had dropped one with a... More

We had a family lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We had the "new" winter menu and most of the dishes were good a couple were outstanding. The wild mushroom mille-feuille was delightful as was the starter platter. For dessert the fruit crumble was also outstanding. It wasn't totally faultless but the cooking was good with excellent service... More

We went here for my dad's birthday. The service was great and the food was yummy. They were more than happy to accommodate for my vegan diet. The only issue I had was that we had preordered a bottle of Prosecco to be served when we sat down as a little surprise, but staff came over to us twice to... More

We went to the Garden Room Cafe as a group of 7 ladies to celebrate a friends Birthday. The table had been booked in advance but on arrival wasn't even set! Unfortunately our party was reduced from 8 to 7 due to one of the girls being unable to attend, this was communicated to the restaurant prior to our arrival... More

After a walk around the park the Garden Room was a lovely, formal setting fro a quick hot chocolate. It has a grand, period interior in as much as possible having been converted to a café. Bright and comfortable, good welcoming service. Some seating outside for sunnier days. A more opulent alternative to the lakeside café.

This is such a lovely cafe/restaurant and the only place to go for afternoon tea at Roundhay Park. We had the best gluten free scones that I've ever tasted and excellent tea. The service was very friendly. It was lovely to sit outside and relax, whilst admiring the beautiful view. Make sure you visit here instead of the Lakeside cafe,... More

Really nice café/restaurant in the middle of Roundhay Park. Great service and a good selection of hot drinks. A tad expensive for me being a student but the drinks were generous sizes and the location is lovely.
