“Tea at Pyt House”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

A delightful cosy setting on a bleak wet afternoon. We had excellent tea and home made scones with jam and cream, very indulgent and well made. Lovely mismatched bone china and pretty decor.
Our visit was slightly riotous due to a bunch of unruly children whose mothers seemed unaware of our presence and allowed their children to run riot around both rooms, the staff tried valiantly to calm the atmosphere without any help from the parents! Note to self avoid half term!!
Notwithstanding the venue is beautiful and well worth a visit.

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Decor, prices and staff make the visit very worthwhile. A lot of thought has obviously gone into making the place relaxing.

“Freshest food possible”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

This is a restaurant in a rebuilt greenhouse (insulated) in the walled garden of Pythouse. The garden has been restored and is a working kitchen garden so all the vegetables are picked and used fresh. The results are fantastic. Lovely atmosphere as well. Some local produce on sale.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Some friends who live in the area took us here for dinner one evening. Well actually the wife drove & I paid but you know what I mean. As it was November I have no idea what the surroundings are like, it was dark. The welcome was very warm, the setting was interesting, the atmosphere was relaxed, the service was brilliant, the food was exceptional, the wine was fine & the bill was about right.
And if you don't like any of that you can buy the furniture.

“Wonderful atmosphere on a cold Autumn afternoon.”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

So glad I had saved time to visit this place, having done a circular walk early morning from my accommodation and discovered it halfway round, with the plan to come back later in the day. The Walled Garden sits at the perimeter of the grounds of the impressive Pythouse, which you can see in all its glory from various points along the road.
The Walled Garden is the old kitchen garden for the house and Im sure in the growing season is fascinating to walk around. Just now it holds the autumn colours, dew and sense of a going to sleep garden. The tea room sits in a restful corner and is housed in the old lean-to greenhouse. Charmingly and stylishly done, welcoming, interesting produce for sale and a gorgeous log burner in the outer conservatory room.
I discovered that at weekends they do evening meals too and only found this out as I was leaving after an hour in front of the fire, in a comfy sofa reading the Telegraph supplements, a luxury I havent enjoyed for a good while. The menu though looks great and Walled Garden Tea Room is somewhere to which I would love to return.
