    I'm sorry to say we walked out. There was no table service and we'd have had to join a queue of at least 30 minutes at the bar. Who knows how long the food would have taken. The tables around us were full of belching young men with their tops off. There was no one around to ask for help; not at all what we had planned when booking a table for a summer's evening at the Orangery. Very very disappointing.

    The staff are alway friendly. I like the venue as it’s bright and inviting, happy to sit there with a group of friends but equally on my own, unlike sitting in a bar. Food is reasonable and presented well.

    Lovely location, but was surprised not more made of it, in terms of organisation, service, food interest & availability. A lot of the very basic menu wasn’t available. No table service, so you have to pay & wait for food by the bar, which is disconnected from the orangery. We were sweating away at our seats enjoying meeting friends & were quite briskly told by a staff member that the table we were sitting at was reserved (-it was, for us!). The orangery had a lovely ambience but was like a sauna, it was a sunny spring day. Young staff were doing their best but didn’t seem that clued up on the reduced menu for the day. The whole thing felt very half hearted. Feels like a massively missed opportunity to create something a bit more special while keeping it simple & affordable, especially considering the location.

    This is a lovely location especially when the sun's shining. It's a funny set up though with food orders taken from and served at what looks and feels like a take-away food bar. This is further aggravated by all coffees getting served in take-away cups, no crockery cups are available. For food we ordered antipasti. It's cultural misappropriation. It's completely made up of British food items. It's a pity because everything here has such potential.

    We had a pleasant visit and some tasty food. It was a little noisy when a group arrived but otherwise it was very nice. It's a shame that you could only use the door furthest away from the bar, especially when it started raining. It would have been better if the door closest to the bar was open.

    Good place for a drink, they had live music on the Saturday night. We didn’t eat, so can’t say what the food was like.

    A great addition to Imperial Gardens, bright, light and airy which is very important in these Covid times. The soup was tasty but cold and took ages to arrive. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
