“Birthday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Just had a lovely lunch out with friends. Celebrated a couple of birthdays. Fish was on the menu and as usual most women like to go fairly low-cal for lunch if possible. Fish was not available until after 1.30pm when the delivery arrived. Not great. The food was lovely but every meal had either pork fat, bread and pastry (veg tart and garlic bread eg.) Loved the food but it would have been nice to be able to maybe choose a salad?

View of the garden was sensational to look out at as we ate. Nice and cosy restaurant and the noise level was good. Even though the restaurant was full we could easily hear each other speak which is unusual. Most places have either floor tiles or timber which can be very noisy.

Most impressed, will visit again!

“A complete delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Cloudehill is a revelation. A beautiful garden, full of unexpected delights. A friendly yummy restaurant with stunning views. A nursery run by engaged, passionate gardeners. I first visited in winter and will be going back regularly to see the beauty of all the seasons.

“Yummy pork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Fantastic! The house host is a lovely lady and great chef.
My advise is to order the pork, it is something you could quite literally die for but it is the only way to go,....eating something as good as this was a pleasure and we'll be back again and again.

“Beautiful Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Spent a few hours wandering around the gardens with a photography group. Even in winter there was something magical around every corner. I would recommend a visit if you're in the area, or looking for a day outing.

“Nursery visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We were just brousing, weather was very cold and we had our young child with us - didn't go into the garden. Staff were friendly.
