We make it a point to go to The Secret Garden at least once a week. The setting is charming, the food amazing and the staff are so wonderful and attentive. The Hostesses are darling and the wait staff is helpful with suggestions and advice. Large parties or just tea for two, this is a must. Dress up with hats and gloves and boas or just relax and enjoy fantastic food, a nice tea selection, and a bit of pampering. We have done a large Birthday Party here as well, with no problems or hitches. We enjoy this rest and lunch a great deal, could you tell?

II's always interesting to revisit a place that one has enjoyed to see if the same high standards still exist.
I am happy to say that after eating at SG recently things remain very good! The owner has been meticulous
about presenting a delicious menu, excellent service, and a warm, friendly environment.
Don't miss the opportunity to enter The Secret Garden. Just wish they served coffee.

It's such a pleasure to visit an establishment that takes itself seriously. The atmosphere was charming, clean and welcoming. Our lunch (chicken salad and a panini) was delicious, attractively plated and freshly prepared.
I will make it a point to visit again. Congenial service and an enjoyable experience that I highly recommend.

My wife and I went here for the Carols by Candlelight tea on a Friday night. This was our second year going to the tea house during this Christmas tea. The service was not rushed, the food was very good and the selection of teas included seasonal blends with spices, citrus and other flavors. This tea service costs $42 and includes a non-alcoholic beverage, soup, sorbet, and a full high-tea service three-tiered tray. A vocalist and organist provided the music for the evening. The entire tea service lasted about 2 1/2 hours and ended with all of the guests being invited to participate in a sing-along of carols that were provided by the staff. A very enjoyable evening that gave us both the chance to enjoy ourselves in a very comfortable and welcoming venue. We'll be back for year three next year.

We wanted a cream tea being British and came across this tea house. We both had the cream teas and it was excellent. We will be back and can recommend this if you want to sample a typical cream tea British style!!
