Said finest local ingredients used in the cafe, not the case unless frozen, microwaved food is your bag! Mediocre coffee, but a nice pot of tea

A small but beautifully designed garden. I've taken annual membership this year to get the best of this place. Some attractive winter foliage and bark for winter colour. Always a pleasant walk in a bright day and a great restaurant. On the flat and easily...More

Few hours here as we had Groupon voucher with free cuppa. Lovely garden, lots of shrubs and trees. Very eclectic. Good to see shrubs etc not in a row.

the gardens are lovely, and the cafe is great. Worthwhile reserving a table during the summer months as it very popular with locals as well as visitors

These gardens are pretty but small and probably ideal for a person who enjoys sitting in gardens and enjoying the tranquillity they offer, rather than someone who enjoys walking around them. It probably takes less than an hour to complete the gardens and at the...More

The gardens have seen better days and the traffic noise is intrusive so if you are looking for pristine flower beds don't bother paying the £4.95 entrance fee. The cakes however are something special. The cafe/restaurant is full of character and you don't have to...More
