A real find for a pleasant, relaxing Sunday visit with good food and excellent service.
A lovely light and modern cafe created in an imaginative extension to an existing church, now the Garden Museum. The service team was very welcoming and efficient and the food of a good standard. Altogether, an enjoyable experience and good choice of venue for lunch.
I was disappointed with the choice of menu offering and the very small size of the vegetable portions. My granddaughter ended up with a pork chop and nothing else (not liking mustard sauce or braised chicory and you were unable to offer alternative vegetables or anything filling).
We also had to wait a very long time after ordering for the meal to arrive.
The bread ran out and the toilets were dirty on January 3rd. They clearly hadn't been cleaned from the Gardeners Question Time event.
More widely, (please pass this on) I was charged twice for an item at the shop and the handout on Captain Bligh is extremely badly written and seemed unfinished. Was there meant to be a second page?
A disappointing visit which I had really looked forward to.
Sunday lunch watching the snow come down in their perfect glass cube. Lovely staff and stunning food.
The Garden of Earthly Delights! We had a fun and delicious informal birthday lunch at the new Garden Cafe, which is attached to the Garden Museum near Lambeth Palace. In a bit of wasteland, it was wonderful to discover this genuinely original and charming restaurant staffed by delightful people and cheffed by two young men who really know their trade. The restaurant is light, airy and pretty with (on one side) a lovely garden view and peaking over on the other, the Thames. The menu is original, fresh and changes daily. It's not open late (usually closing around 5.00) so check times before you visit.
Staff were very friendly and attentive, offered me bread while I waited for my partner to arrive, and more bread to mop up the juices of my cod dish. Nice selection of local beers and a well-made hot chocolate. The food was imaginative and delicious. Floor to ceiling windows gave a lovely view of the garden on a rainy day - didn't feel like we were in the middle of the city at all.
Delicious food, served in a great setting. Lovely selection of wines and tasty coffee. Only suggestion would be to not book a table at 2pm plus, felt ousted into our deserts because the kitchen wanted to leave. Bit unprofessional, very friendly staff and have recommended again.
Great venue, very interesting menu and delicious food
The food at the Garden Museum Cafe is quite superb. This is a real find and well worth making a trip to sample some of the most interesting new cooking I've experienced in a long time. Lovely, imaginative wine too which reinforces the sense that the team are always trying to deliver new sensations - and they are succeeding!
