The Secret Garden is the respite you’ve been searching for, outside of the concrete confines of the city. Perfect for family outings, The Secret Garden offers an extensive breakfast, lunch and tea menu, with views over sprawling lawns – and a play park for the little ones.
Dining isn’t confined to a room, but is solely outdoors and moves out onto a terrace and the lawn, where picnics are specially catered for (you only need bring a blanket). High Teas are an absolute must – The Secret Garden knows exactly how to put on a fantastically decadent affair: Victorian sponge cake; tarts; quiche; dainty sandwiches; custard puffs; scones; eclairs – you name it! There is also a ‘Tea for Two’ option, served after 14h00 daily.
The breakfast menu is petite, but we prefer it that way. English and Continental breakfasts are served, with Filled Croissants and Smoked Salmon breakfasts served as an alternative. The sandwiches are scrumptious, with a choice of bread filled with such delights as Sweet Chilli Chicken, topped with baby spinach, avocado and feta, or the Kingfisher Sandwich, with a smoked salmon, cottage cheese, caper and onion filing. Salads are absolutely more-ish, while those with more of an appetite will love their burgers.
