“Wonderful variety of gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Quite an extensive collection of plants, I particularly loved the Japanese garden. Interesting sculptures in the park as well. For the price of a gold coin donation it's good value for the whole family. Great views too.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

A lovely view, very busy on the day. Quite an extensive menu. For the price a little expensive, but very enjoyable. We had a living social voucher which made it good value but I don't think I'd pay the full asking price. A beautiful place and a walk around the gardens after lunch just completed the experience. So I guess I'm trying to say it's a little over priced but the food is good and it's a lovely setting.

“A great hideaway treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We enjoyed roaming the paths. A joy was the japanese garden. The Old trees that we found were a joy. The mothers with young children rolling the slopes and picnicing were showing a childhood and parental memory that was a step back in time.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

A lovely treasure that is still free to visit. Beautiful gardens to walk through and to sit down and have lunch. Only negative was beening Mothers day the resturant was booked out and the kiosk was running low on food, we were lucky to get some of the last couple of pies and muffins, there was a bit of a wait too has only one lady was serving.
