Welcome to The Secret Garden Tearooms
Having begun our story many years ago in the nursery conservatory we went on to create our busy, welcoming tearoom, function room, marquee and the beautiful garden area you now see today. We also have a courtyard with some covered seating offering heating and cosy blankets and cushions for you to relax whilst eating our delicious homemade cakes and lunches.
Remember, you can always incorporate into your day a trip around our Nursery. With over 130 years of experience you know that at Writtle Road Nursery you’re in very capable hands. If you need advice with your garden or the products we sell please feel free to ask our staff who are more than happy to help you.
Some dates still available for Christmas lunches, please phone Wendy for availability.
Due to the high demand for our function room we are now offering our catering services including waitresses at The Heritage Centre in Galleywood. If you require further details please contact Wendy at the tearooms.

We have recently said farewell for now to Gemma, Kristina and Zena all having additions to their families.
We had Zena’s baby shower in October, presenting her with an amazing Nappy Cake made by Dee at Happy Evie After. Zena gave birth to a rather large healthy little boy Dominic on 9th November.
We like to welcome everyone at the secret garden but due to lack of space and health and safety regulations we are unable to cater for pushchairs in the tearooms but more than welcome in the function room if available.

What we've got going on at The Secret Garden
We recognise that Funerals or memorial services are a very difficult time with a huge amount of things to do for the family concerned. We will ensure that the family is able to concentrate on the funeral arrangements, knowing that the wake is taken care of sensitively and in a caring manner.
We can cater for all occasions. Our outside catering offers personalised menus and waitress service is available if required. Please contact us for further details or call 01245 348 337.
