I would really liked to have had coffee and lunch here, but as I am on my own with my dog, there is a big sign saying no dogs allowed, I'm not leaving her outside on her own just to get coffee - so still can't go in there ! All other park cafes allow dogs !!

As a regular customer (over 8 years now) I couldn't recommend the Garden Cafe more. Simply stunning food, breakfasts are amazing (the recent addition of smashed avocado is delicious), great cakes and everything is home made.

Great Cafe with a good atmosphere and great tasty food, only issue is the price of the food I order differs dependant on who serves you, which is a shame as it's a great place. So try not to order anything not on the menu as the prices will differ daily.

I rediscovered this when a friend suggested meeting there. We had a lovely relaxed lunch, well as relaxed as you can with a toddler. The cafe has some toys to entertain children and is totally child friendly. We were inside due to rain but in better weather you can easily take drinks and snacks outside. Food was delicious, good sized... More

I had my 40th birthday here over the summer and it was absolutely perfect. With the option of outdoors or in, we got to enjoy the British summer, without worrying whether what the weather would do (it was glorious on the day). The event went really well. The cafe created a lovely outdoor area with sofas and a bar and... More

Having visited a number of tapas places, both in and out of Spain, I can happily say the The Garden Cafe puts on the best spread. I went this weekend with a number of work friends (I think there were 90 of us in total) for an annual trip. This is one that all of the office wants to attend,... More

Good place for small parties...especially kids' birthday parties. Big lawns in the front. A children's play park about 50m away. Very scenic in good weather. Cafe itself can be unpredictable as it depends on the staff there.
