Description: Welcome to the Farringford Garden cafe, which is set within the historic estate of Farringford, former home to Poet Laureate, Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Inside you will find a warm welcome from our friendly staff.We choose the best seasonal ingredients to create a truly delicious and affordable menu with something to tempt everyone. We offer a a sandwich menu for those with a smaller appetite. Our tempting pizzas are handcrafted and cooked in our wood fired oven. we recommend that you book your table. During the summer months the outside terrace is very popular with both self-catering guests and local residents alike.Our Garden Cafe is now closed for the Winter season. Thank you to all of our customers for another enjoyable Summer. We look forward to seeing you all when we re-open in the Spring!

We booked for a family birthday & did'nt realise that we could'nt have pizzas in the evening, I only checked out the restaurant at lunch time & pizzas looked amazing so was a little disappointed that we had to have a more expensive a la carte menu, that said, the food was really delicious & we all enjoyed it. Although the estate is v dog friendly we could'nt take the little dog in but sat on the terrace, luckily it was a beautiful evening. it was a tuesday night & there were no other diners, maybe with a little more relaxed menu on a summer night & pizzas the restaurant may have been full. x

I was fortunate enough to attend an authentic Curry Night at the Garden Restaurant, i had heard that the food was very good, so wanted to see for myself. The first thing that strikes you is the beautiful setting in the grounds of Farringford House, the Restaurant is situated away from the house, and is tastefully decorated. The waiting staff were very friendly, efficient and attentive, offering you assistance with the Menu if required. The thing i liked most is that it was most definately authentic, as i was advised that the Chef creates a variety of menus from varying regions of India and Pakistan so was not your bulk standard takeaway Curry, it was an excellent dining experience with 4 courses of varying local delicacies of manageable portion sizes, most importantly the food tasted amazing! I will most definately be revisiting this Restaurant to try one of the other regional curry nights, and to experience the food on offer for a standard evening Menu. I will be reccomending this Restaurant to my friends and family.
