The food is always consistently good here at TGE and plenty to choose from. The outdoor setting in the gardens is lovely for a family get together over lunch or afternoon tea (the cakes and deserts are to die for).

Great meal, excellent service, pleasant ambience. The food is superb, and cooked by an iconic Nelson chef, John Appelman. He has devised a truly international menu, and the only problem we had, was to make a decision as to what to order.
