Despite torrential rain, the cafe was packed for lunch. We had a main course and dessert, both of which were excellent. Consistently good. Can be a little noisy at times.

We've been to cook's garden many times but it's been a while since the last visit. The food is still a real delight with great looking and tasting food. My only note was the menu was not as good as it used to be. The...More

We visited the bar attached to the restaurant. Has a small but tasty menu of delicious bar food with a good range of drinks. Very relaxed and enjoyable.

The weekend breakfast menu covers all bases, priced reasonably, generous portions of fresh produce. The best part is the open fresh outdoor garden setting you may be lucky enough to get. Otherwise there is plenty of indoor seating.

Sunny day place for brunch. Interesting menu items such as the Japanese egg sandwich. Sit outside and watch the world go by.

Pleasant ambience, and varied menu. Well presented food and good quality. A little overpriced. Worth a visit. Can be a bit noisy though. However they do have a quieter area under the gazebo

Popped in for dinner, atmosphere was good and the split bar / restuarant works well. My entree - Squid/Chirizo lacked punch and flavour, no Chirizo flavour. Steak was first class and was delicious, normally hate mash, but this time it was good. Wifes meal was...More
