This little cafe is as its name state a little secret garden. The surroundings are beautiful in the garden. The staff are young but very efficient. The food was top class. Will definitely be going back.

We quite often pop in when the weather is good, so that we can sit outside and enjoy the lovely garden and food. Food is always good and I'd like to praise the young girls running the food and taking the orders. It's quite often very busy and very hot and they do an excellent job. There's always a little robin in the garden too.

Beautiful peaceful garden, very friendly service and tasty food. There is a good selection on the menu too. Cakes were quite nice but you could tell they were bought in and were slightly dry.

This cafe has a truely secret garden. Lovely seating indoors with the garden area a bonus. Some of the outdoor seating is covered good for shelter if its a bit wet or shade on those hot days. The food was great we had the cream tea, and sandwiches both very fresh. The staff were friendly and brought our dog a bowl of water. Would recommend a visit

This is a must if you visit Bideford. Right in the town centre you enter into a tiny shop area. Then you go your table in a beautiful secluded garden. The food and choice of menu is excellent. Prices are very good a great place for lunch. Will definitely return.
