“small restaurant perfection”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The food is always excellent, great friendly staff no distracting muzak and a very fine range of loose leaf teas if you're that way inclined. Its so close to perfect I don't want everyone else to know about it.

“Easter Sat”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Pleasant site in market town in Suffolk. Staff seemed polite and helpful especially young waitresses. My fruit cake was extremely moist and rich, more like a Christmas cake, but extremely good with tea, which was loose leaf in proper pot. She had lemon cake which was bursting with flavour and delicious, high marks for coffee to which is rare.

Perhaps the seating was just a tad crowded, but overall give it a go.

“quintessentially England.”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

England doesn't get any better than Suffolk and at SUDBURY, life is idyllic with beautiful water meadows well run cricket and football clubs and a perfect cafe called ,THE SECRET GARDEN.'Kirsty served us with great tea and coffee and our guests, first time visitors to Suffolk, were in raptures as we sat outside in the warm sun and marvelled at the pure and simple delights of an escape from the hectic life-styles we sometimes choose to lead.
