About Garden Restaurant
British and European flavours combined with the elegant setting and perfect views of our private, landscaped gardens
The Garden Restaurant Menu offers an extensive choice. Our Chef uses as much local produce as possible to create a truly memorable dining experience with our beautiful setting enhancing this experience even further.
Excellent meal, lovely staff and fantastic restaurant within the hotel to compliment our stay. Very enjoyable!
Lovely afternoon tea with plenty of food.. My only comments would be that the sandwich choice was limited for me as I do not like mustard, salmon or egg mayonnaise. I would also like to say that I was disappointed that we were not offered more tea while we were there for 2 hours. On a whole it was a wonderful afternoon with good quality cakes & scones and the staff were helpful and friendly.
We had afternoon tea priced at 37.00 for two which I felt was a little overpriced for the amount given. However, everything on there was absolutely amazing. Very tasty cakes and sandwiches. All extremely fresh. The best thing about here was the staff. All very lovely and helpful. My mum is partially sighted so we were a little slow to our seats but they were extremely patient. Would book again for a special occasion
Lovely afternoon tea. Great service and setting for a girlh gathering. Thank you for looking after us
Very friendly welcome, good service and food.Price a little high for the quality of the tea provided
Food was ok and mustard removed from sandwiches - as we had an 8 year old with us we expected something a little bit more child friendly as she didn’t eat any of the pastries only the ham sandwiches bought out fir her mum without mustard so wife had none - it was a gift so not sure I would pay to go here again
I so wanted this to be better than it was! Afternoon tea is supposed to be a treat, but this was not remotely special! Firstly, there was no one to greet us and show us to our seats, then there was no tablecloth, and a stained seat that I quickly changed. We had the dining room to ourselves, but it was late afternoon. The food was ok, but nothing special. Presentation let it down - scones were stacked on slices of cake - not particularly attractive. Obviously trying to serve 3 people on a cake stand for two. For the last Thursday night before Christmas, the place seemed very empty, which is a real shame. It has a brilliant location, parking and so much potential, but attention to detail let’s it down. Given the competition in Winchester, it really needs to up its game.
We all enjoyed lunch yesterday, the staff were helpful and very friendly. The food was amazing especially the Salmon and Roast turkey it was all cooked to perfection we will definitely come again Please thank everyone at the hotel for making us feel very welcome
Booking online was not easy; checking the booking by phone was not easy (left voicemail which not returned). Arrived having booked Sunday Roast lunch deal to find they were expecting us for Afternoon Tea. All came good as Sunday Roast was served but not at price I'd seen online - think this must be a quirk of booking the last week of November before the menu changed for December. Food was lovely and the lounge for coffee afterwards relaxing so all in all good and would consider going again.
I am sorry to say that we were disappointed with our afternoon tea, booked as a birthday treat for me. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and nice, but .... The room lacked any ambience - no background music , decor looking a bit tired, all a bit utilitarian. The tea was disappointing. Just a choice of tea or coffee, no choice of types of tea, and we were provided with a pot of tea with teabags and no hot water, and thick white crockery. It just didn’t feel special. The food was ok, but the sandwiches had been haphazardly prepared and a couple of them had virtually no filling in them ( one of mine literally had a couple of bits of sweet corn but nothing else discernible). The scones were served with jelly, not jam, and not quite enough cream. I suspect the scones were warmed in the microwave. The cake selection was ok but not exciting. After the tea was served no member of staff came to check if we needed anything or if everything was alright. In fact I think I saw the waitress who had served us with her coat on, going off duty. We had to go looking for someone to pay the bill. I am not a complainer usually but we were very disappointed that there was so much that could have been better with just a little more attention to detail.
Excellent, cheerful and helpful staff from start to finish. We were looking for a peaceful and professional experience to combat the hustle and crowds in so many Winchester establishments. This hotel is at the centre of Winchester, whereas others claim to be but are a 15 minute walk away for the able bodied!
Great as always
Extremely busy when we arrived but we were taken to our table overlooking the garden and had a lovely time in relaxing area.
lovely afternoon tea, sandwiches very tasty, fab warm scones and the chocolate marshmallows were to die for. great selection of tarts too. the waitress was really lovely and nice too.
My friends and I had a lovely, unhurried, tasty afternoon tea. Service was excellent. I will come again definately. Thanks.
Have had afternoon tea several times as it is always very good. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely afternoon tea, coffee was rather weak, and atmosphere was poor simply because we were the only ones dining at the time. The waitress did not come and check with us at any time whether or not we were ok and we had to seek her out when we required service. Value for money of course as it was discounted.
Very dull... bit plain and simple.... shame it was a 60th birthday present for one our friends ☹
A number of comments about the tea being tasteless - only 2 teabags in a large tea pot! More teabags needed. We used a Groupon voucher as a result we all felt the afternoon tea was very good value for money and most enjoyable.
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea. We were greeted and served by a really polite and accommodating young man and served well by the rest of the staff. The cakes and sandwiches were delicious. The only small criticism is that the coffee was not hot enough for my liking. Other than that, it was a lovely treat. Many thanks
The staff were amazing, so efficient and friendly. The food was delicious and we couldn't fault it all. We will definitely be coming back when we are in the area again.
Very friendly staff, no request was too much. Excellent service. Quality of afternoon tea was amazing!!
