Mother’s Day – Sunday, 22nd March. We will only be serving Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea today and not our usual coffee shop lunch menu. A polite reminder: Only food and drink purchased from The Secret Garden Tearooms may be consumed on our premises. We can cater for most special dietary requirements. BUSINESS AS USUAL AT THE SECRET GARDEN. Full Afternoon Tea is now served from 3pm daily – you may also wish to purchase Afternoon Tea Vouchers as a gift.

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.

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 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.
