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 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 Writtle Road Gift Shop.  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.

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.


Jane Wickes our Manager has been with us for over seven years.  Wendy, Tracey and Jane Watts are our Team Leaders and will assist you when making your booking for functions.

Tom our Head Chef is always available to discuss your menu requirements.  He enjoys spending his time researching recipes and sourcing fresh local ingredients.

We work really hard to make sure you enjoy your visit to The Secret Garden and go away having had a time to remember. Here are a few of the things we do:



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.


Outside Catering

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.


Corporate Breakfast & Evening Meetings

The Secret Garden is an ideal place for business meetings in discreet surroundings.  Please contact us for further details or call 01245 348 337.

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.
