Garden Kitchen ~ Revisited

 photo gk-1_zps21e0919c.jpg
With the new Spring season comes a new Spring menu, at one of my favourite local eateries, Garden Kitchen. Invited for a return visit (you can see my previous visit here) last Bank Holiday weekend, a friend and I enjoyed a lazy, casual lunch in light and airy surroundings. With lots of seasonal flowers scattered around us in sweet mis-matched plant pots, it was easy to believe that we were actually in the midst of a British Spring/Summer, instead of this rather undecided weather situation we have been having lately.

The day called for some refreshing drinks - we enjoyed glasses of traditional, home-made lemonade upon arrival and glasses of Prosecco, Bloody Mary and Strawberry Blonde Mojito cocktails throughout our meal. Toasted Welsh Rarebit, Brie and Asparagus tart along with yummy fries were eventually finished off with huge slices of delectable carrot and salted caramel cakes with coffee.

Enjoy the photographs, I make absolutely no apology for quite intentionally making your mouths water.

  3. I always walk past this thinking how nice it is, but i have such a terrible phobia of plants and pot plants in particular. I can't go anywhere near them without feeling panicky! Ha, sounds so silly but it's right up there with spiders on the scary scale! x

  4. Oh this looks amazing! I recently went to a garden theme restaurant in London called The Folly. It was so good I had to write about it.

  6. Oh, I remember your first review about this place, I added it to my to-visit list in the UK. :) But my timing is terrible because looking at your wonderful photos didn't do much much good when I was starving. Everything looks so delicious, particularly the cakes. xx

  7. This is so near the top of my list of places I want to go to when I feel well. I went quite a few times to the old one, but this new version seems even better, esp with all the garden and flower things around. The fries look lush as do the cakes.
