Love this wee place, that isn't really that small once you go through the door. It has a beautiful garden area - well named Secret Garden. You would never know when driving past that it is there. Ambience is great.

Went there on a cold night a couple of weeks ago. Restaurant was cold - only one small open fire which did nothing to warm the place. Owner was rude. Waiting staff were friendly. Lamb shank was worst I have ever had - hardly any...More

A friend and I went to the Secret Garden for Dinner last month and were appalled at how terrible the service was! When we arrived both staff behind the counter took a look at us then continued working with no acknowledgment what’s so ever. After...More
