“Ruined”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Lack of respect by staff when mentioned they should reconsider smoking to be allowed in their walled garden. Meal was ruined by smokers and their poison that's takes over the small undercovered terrace. I was told that regular clients enjoy smoking. Rude and ignorant.

“Brilliant for dairy and gluten free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Ok so generally I dislike eating out as its usually very difficult for people to cater for gluten AND dairy free, understandably. However, look no further because The Garden Café are not phased in the face of danger i.e. a difficult customer! They knew exactly what I could and could not eat, the menu was helpfully marked up too, and the staff were in general very pleasant and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding, reasonably priced and BIGGG portions. They even had a choice of cake for me too which any coeliac would know is not common.
So, all in all, massive thumbs up!

“Proper vegetarian restaurant , still ok if you're not one !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Had a lovely cheese tomato and onion toasted sandwich today with a lovely salad garnish. On a sunny lunchtime there can be no better place in Frome ! Sit outside to appreciate it all,apparently when you go outside to eat in the winter they give you blankets. !!! You have got to love new Frome ! Just don't bother if you want a rare beef sandwich !!

“Converted my meat loving husband to tofu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had the shared tapas here for lunch and it was fantastic. All freshly prepared, really simple food done really well. The tofu was a revalation, can't believe how tasty it was. The service was with a smile and it is so great to see an independent place doing so well.
