We went for a coffee and cake and after half an hour walking round the water gardens stayed for lunch. Staff were welcoming and eager to help with allergies. You can eat inside but on our visit it was sunny and warm so we ate by the side of the River Wey. Lovely place.

So gorgeous and beautiful food and coffee. Will go again x very Traditional English style.
We used a voucher we received for Christmas to visit Sunday 05/05/24. We arrived just before 3pm but luckily we'd booked as it was still packed. Our voucher was for 2 x cream teas which were lovely, the scone was warm and tea served in a proper tea pot. Nice friendly staff, food arrived promptly even though busy. Beautiful gardens out the back where you can sit if it's nice. The wishing well is actually a spring which winds all around the site, very nice for a wander after your food. We would return and try the Sunday lunches as they looked good too.
