In the heart of the Golden Triangle, The Garden House bears all the hallmarks of a traditional pub, while being smart with more than a dash of bohemia. It has always had a natural air of ‘cool’ about it, without being pretentious or having to try too hard, and is ideal for the young at heart.
Throughout the day, the atmosphere is calm and peaceful – ideal for a working lunch or catching up with friends over coffee. The Garden House serves excellent homecooked food throughout the day at very reasonable prices. Wash it all down with a great selection of wines and ales.
For Sunday Lunch, pick a ‘basic’ Roast (from 3 different meats and a veggie option, with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, mixed seasonal veg and a rich gravy – £9.95) and customise with your own extras (extra meat, extra veg, pigs in blankets, stuffing, mashed potato, cauliflower mash, crispy bacon) at 50p – £2 each. Imagine a superb, giant carvery of the highest quality, all freshly cooked.
At night, The Garden House comes alive and many is the time when I have entered to ‘standing room only’ (get there early to get a table!). The huge beer garden (one of the largest in the Golden Triangle, if not the City Centre) buzzes in the summer with guests of all ages.
Within walking distance of the delights of the City Centre, The Garden House is the perfect place to dine pre-Theatre (or before going out for a ‘night on the tiles’), or if you’re simply looking for somewhere with a real personality to take a long, lovely lunch.
