A tea shop that opens for evening meals. It's like the best French meals - a small, carefully considered menu cooked to perfection. My husband had millet with his main course rather than just potatoes or rice, and although I teased him about budgerigar food he said it was absolutely delcious - high praise from him. Everything here tasted fantastic, the portion sizes were just right and it was a very reasonable set price for two or three courses. The staff were welcoming and happy to chat if you wanted them to, otherwise courteous and efficient. The service was neither too fast nor too slow. The tables were far enough apart to give you intimacy if you wanted it but near enough to chat with other diners if you wished to do so. This is no swanky restaurant - go to the Mill if that's your scene - but the Secret Garden certainly served up the best food we ate in Sudbury. I thoroughly recommended it.

I love the ambience of this place. The owner is friendly, and even if the service can sometimes be slow, the food is always worth the wait. Nice, seasonal specials at lunchtime with a French twist, and fantastic bread and patisseries. Lucky Sudbury!!

We were really pleased to find this little place on our first visit to Sudbury. We only stopped for a mid morning snack but really enjoyed the scones and croissants. Brilliant tea menu, great cappucino and lovely hot chocolate. Very busy - it seems best to reserve a table if you can. Lovely staff. We'll definitely go back and perhaps try lunch - the menu sounded very nice.

Quirky and very French , great food and value. Just wish there is more than one meat main dish on the daily specials. This sells out quite quickly and if you don't fancy the vegetarian option it can be embarrassing when you leave?
