My husbands lamb was very tough and full of gristle and the watercress very limp . My sole and sauce was great with grape halves. Unfortunately the green beans had not been... More

My wife & I went there for our wedding anniversary. The weather was great so we took our time enjoying the gardens with many flowers in bloom and the ponds which were teaming with life, fish, water skaters & birds that are attracted to the insects there. Recommend it.

Go here it is amazing. Lovely tree house play area for kids, and loads of different flora and fauna on some brilliant walks around the grounds. Top it off with a hot chocolate in the cafe. Great facilities

We visited here on Xmas eve and our daughter did the bauble trail. We have been here several times and it's a lovely garden to visit. It was very cold though and very busy. I think I prefer it in the summer but we still had a nice time. The café was very very busy. We queued for ages. But... More
