We visit as often as we can (Not often enough!) We've eaten on the Valentine's Friday night special for the past 2 years & been delightfully impressed. Gina & Stu have the sense to have a small but perfectly formed menu that always suits us.
This must be just about the best restaurant in South Yorkshire.

This is a charming restaurant in the pleasantly quiet village of Braithwell. On the same site as the now defunct PSI garden centre, I have watched it change from cafe/tea rooms to a 'proper' restaurant in every sense of the word.
The room is airy and light, with bright, quirky and regularly chaged decor. There's seating outside on a sunny terrace too for warmer days. Dogs are welcome outside. Service is ourstanding and very welcoming from a bright and enthusiastic team.
The menu offers something for everyone, from breakfasts, through coffee and cake, to three course meals.
We go there most often for lunch, when the menu includes an excellent range of sandwiches (hot & cold - all on a choice of bread), creative salads, home-made soups and classics such as burgers, fish & chips and meat pies all which have been tried and never found lacking. There's also a regularly changing specials board. Their skinny chips are the best I've tasted. Portion sizes are very generous, three courses require a very big appetite.
There's a good selection of wine, beer and hot drinks.
Prices are reasonable, and very good value for the quality.
It's predominantly a daytime operation with occasionaly evening openings, often themed around special events or occasions.
The clientele is as eclectic as the decor; couples, families, cyclists, larger groups and ladies who lunch.
A great place for a long leasurely meal or snack, any time of day, any time of year.

The Garden Room Restaurant is a most perfect little restaurant hidden in Braithwell.The decor is clean and fresh and reflects a garden theme. Everything is clean and fresh and modern. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. In summer you are able to sit outside and if you like you can take your dog with you as they provide water bowls for them.
They serve beers and wines and a selection of champagnes. Dining here is a real pleasure and is consistently of the best standards.. I thoroughly recommend this place.

Went for sunday brunch on the 11 november. A nice touch to observe the 2 minutes silence.
Staff were friendly and helpful but so slow offering a second drink that I had to go to the counter and ask. It was not that busy so not sure why we were missed.
Have a plain bacon, egg and toast breakfast which was well cooked and well presented but pricey for a basic meal.
We love this place and will come back. I guess with popularity comes a price tag?
