    I recently had brunch here with my partner what a beautiful setting it is. We had a warm welcome with a table by the window to look at the beautiful grounds outside. The menu is just right with good choices that suit everyone.

    It was a sunny day, the gardens looked wonderful but we three friends were met at the cafe door, by a very expressionless, unwelcoming woman, who I presume was in charge and obviously not having a good day. The younger looking staff were lovely, polite and helpful. The food was delicious. My advice is get a new front of house.

    This garden cafe thinks it’s a upmarket restaurant, all the wonderful light lunches it had are gone, no cakes anymore and we were told to go elsewhere if we wanted cake, we were celebrating a birthday The cafe was only half full whereas it used to be always full

    Absolutely beautiful afternoon tea - Becks was lovely the service was great. My Nan who doesn’t get out much just loves coming here it’s her favourite place and she always talks about the best scones and cream at one garden - she loves that they are generous with the cream. I love the lavender scones a little twist on the original. Thanks so much ☺️

    The food we had was delicious my only concern is it’s a friendly cafe vibe at fine dining prices and portion size. Be prepared to have at least 2 courses if you’re hungry at around £25/ 30 per head without drinks.

    Very pleasant food with multitude of flavours. Only hiccup was when food order was mixed up and 2 meat dishes rather 2 vegetarian dishes were brought out for a party of 3 where 2 individuals are vegetarian! It then seemed to take a long time for the correct dish to be served such that the individual ended up eating by themselves. Would happily return but will double check the food order next time.

    Expensive. £8 for a bowl of pea soup and a tiny piece of toast. Admittedly very tasty. Fabulous setting. The Plumpton wine was pleasant but £30 a bottle. Apparently the menu changes frequently and is seasonal . The day we went it was very meat based. Other than the soup there was a Moroccan dish suitable for vegetarians. Service was good.

    Very nice food, inventive and well presented. The staff were friendly and charming. However the establishment requires an experienced manager to allocate staff, time manage and control flows. We waited twenty minutes before our order was taken and then another ten before our coffee was served. I commented previously about this issue so hope now my suggestions are considered

    Lovely setting, but it seemed like they were unprepared for the number of bookings they had taken. Most of the staff seemed new, and strangely only one member of staff was able to take orders - the rest were wandering around looking a bit helpless. We had to wait 45 minutes for our food, and I had to rescue my meal from a nearby table where I could hear them saying they hadn’t ordered that. The food was quite nice when we finally got it, although my sons burger bun was a bit burnt.

    Lovely setting however it was very difficult to get to speak to anyone about my booking. Messages weren't responded to and I had to go there in person in the end to have my questions answered. Very inconvenient. The food was nice but over priced. Some of the meals were very small. Long wait for the food and then one of the meals had been missed off the order so we then had a wait for that one to be cooked. The staff were sweet but service wasn't great. This is the second time I've eaten here and the second time I've had a poor experience. Sadly I don't think I'll be coming back.

    Food was delicious but things went very wrong with the service. Our server was delightful when she came but it’s clear that there was a huge confusion and we had to go indoors to order our desserts and ask for the bill. Customers all round us were getting the wrong orders or nothing at all. One order arrived for a table after the people had left. All rather basil Fawlty.

However, we always listen to our feedback and will take this to the team. We are now offering pastries during the mid-week during the mornings, and will suggest adding pancakes as a special throughout the year. We hope to see you back soon.
