About The Garden Café
The Garden Cafe serves food that is seasonal and visually stimulating, with a focus on simple ingredients and a menu that changes daily
I gave only four stars for service because I think the young woman that was our server may have been new. When our kid goat and lentils dish was served to us a bit to under cooked yesterday, she didn’t immediately take them back with her to the kitchen when we asked they be done a little bit more thoroughly. It appears she had to go seek approval and or directions from somebody in the know. However, I have been to the Café many times and find the menu to be incredibly and refreshingly creative. What is more important are the flavors. I have never gotten a bad meal here and find that the food delicious. Oh, and the bread is outstanding!
Very enjoyable lunch. Well presented food with some original twists that tasted really good. Nice atmosphere with attentive service. Good location and a relatively unusual setting. Very light and airy. Would recommend it and look forward to visiting again.
very nice staff, helpful and smiling. Attractive surroundings, good food although only sampled a small part of the menu
Service friendly but a bit slow Presumably a 5-star rating is better than a 1, but it would be helpful if your survey spelled that out!
Excellent food, and wonderful service would thoroughly recommend this restaurant many thanks.
Lovely setting but very open plan and therefore quite noisy. We found the portions on the small side, particularly the 'mixed' cheese platter which consisted of only two small slithers of cheese - think too describe that as mixed was a bit of a stretch tbh!
The food was delicious.
Lovely setting. Service great. Unfortunately on this occasion the food (lunch) did not live up to this. The fish was inedible. We did complain and were not charged for it. Overall most of the food was not presented very well and overpriced for what it was. The duty manager needs further training in customer service skills.
A unique menu of delicious food in a lovely setting. I will definitely be recommending your restaurant to my friends.
As usual, an enjoyable meal in the lovely light dining room. I like the interesting ingredients (lambs' heart, John Dory, but also imaginative veggie options). The only disappointment this time was the fresh mint tea, in which the mint was barely detectable. We asked for more, but it wasn't any better. I've ordered it before and it's been fine so I assume someone doesn't know how to make it?
Great meal again! Much enjoyed a meal after evening event at the Museum. Well done The Garden Café staff.
Had a delicious beetroot and apple salad followed by a tasty venison lasagna rounded off by poached figs and panna cotta. perfect .
As excellent as usual! Thank you friendly staff, clever chefs and all the behind the scenes people who helped make it a lovely evening for my friend and I.
Nice airy restaurant. Food a bit fancy but not too costly.
An excellent lunch delicious in beautiful surroundings and nicely served by your team! Thank you! We ll be back!
The restaurant is nice with table service and a good atmosphere. We felt the food was a bit fussy. We looked at the menu and struggled to find something normal on it. It would have been nice to have a sandwich option on it as we went at lunchtime. A real shame sour dough bread is all that is on offer and a side salad was extra! I asked for a Coke to drink and got some kind of pretentious organic Cola, it wasn’t very nice and barely fizzy. Real shame actually as the atmosphere and location are really good. For dessert, we didn’t eat from the menu as there was nothing we liked, so asked for a couple of cakes from the counter instead to share, they were very tasty.
Food was delicious and the venue in the museum is great . Staff helpful and relaxed atmosphere . We had a fabulous time Thank you
Service is terribly slow and we were shocked to see that people who had ordered a starter were served long before us (who started with the main dish) when they had arrived long after us. This should never be the case and the waiter wasn’t to be blamed: this is the responsibility of the kitchen only! It’s a real shame as the food is good.
Very pleasant luncheon in a delightful location. Interesting menu. Appreciated the linen napkins; becoming rare these days. Also appreciated that one could order a glass; carafe or bottle from all the wines on the list. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient,and helped make it an all round pleasant occasion.
It is a wonderful place with delicious food and the best service. It is a pleasure to be there.
Excellent freshly sourced produce creatively prepared - no Masterchef towers or artistic flourishes. Simple and delicious.
Lovely meal in delightful setting after an excellent lecture = wonderful evening
I had a great time at The Garden Cafe, it was my first visit and I was very pleased with the atmosphere and the high quality of food and service. It was wonderful having a coffee while looking at the amazing trees. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to going again soon.
