The Colonial Restaurant

Perfect for lunches, snacks or drinks (fully licensed).
Available for evening hire. Tel: 01305 871732.

This restaurant is very special, constructed in the colonial style, built of timber with a raised veranda overlooking the beautiful Gardens. Ample seating inside, on the veranda and in the courtyard where wild birds congregate hoping for a share. We are able to offer very special meal arrangements to complement the events that take place during the season.

Opening times: open every day 10am – 4.30pm (kitchen open 10am – 3.00pm)

The restaurant is just before the ticket office at the Gardens and so can be enjoyed by all.
