Although tucked away, the Walled Garden in Lower Sunbury is well worth seeking out. It offers free parking for the first hour and has a nice cafe inside serving a good selection of homemade delicacies. Best of all though is the scenery itself - the roses are spectacular throughout Summer and the well-tended gardens always have something to offer year round - a perfect spot for a stroll in your lunch hour!

The gardens were lovely. Not very big, so a nice afternoon stroll. The cafe is excellent - always a good range of cakes available. I understand bands play there in the summer months on the bandstand.

This is good value home cooked food and cakes. The only reason this loses any points are the really poor cappuccinos, however the americanos are good and the Victoria sandwich is one of the best. Also gardens are great and the gallery is small but worth a peak. If you are in the area this is worth 30 mins of your time.

We have been regular visitors to The Walled Garden since we found this hidden gem a few years ago. It is a beautiful, well tended garden with lots of climbers including clematis alongside roses, lavenders and various bedding plants (to name a few) with plenty of seating throughout where you can relax with friends, family or just a book. During the summer months there are brass and jazz band concerts held at weekends (weather permitting of course) which makes for a lovely day where you can either eat in the cafe or enjoy your own picnic whilst listening to the wonderful music. There are also sculpture exhibitions at various times of the year.

The cafe serves delicious homemade soups and lunches daily (except Mondays when it is closed) including various sandwiches, ploughmans, salads and filled croissants alongside scrumptious cakes, the majority of which are freshly baked by the ladies each day on the premises - these are not to be missed and you will be hard pushed to find better elsewhere in my opinion. Amongst those to tickle your taste buds are: Victoria Sponge, lemon drizzle, coffee, cherry & almond, carrot, ginger, fruit cake, brownies, tea cakes, muffins and of course scones (served with jam and clotted cream if you wish) with tea, coffee and cold drinks also available. Prices are very reasonable for the quality/portion sizes and the staff are both friendly and helpful. There is seating inside and out with the latter being especially lovely during the warmer months, however, the full length windows allow for great views of the garden whilst sitting inside at any time of year. Attached to the cafe is the embroidery gallery where you can view the latest exhibition and purchase gifts including a cookery book with the cafe's homemade recipes.

There are a number of car parks surrounding the garden within short walking distance that contain disabled parking spaces. The first hour is free then £1 after that or 2 hours free for disabled badge holders. I would certainly recommend a visit if in the area, especially if you enjoy looking around beautiful gardens and are partial to a slice of delicious cake!
