Visited the Walled Nursery and ambled round the plants. Then popped in to the conservatory for a coffee. The wood burner made the area warm and cosy. The display of old gardening implements in the wall and the scattered pot plants created a great atmosphere. There were also fleece rugs to snuggle up in if necessary. The quirky chair legs... More

I took my better half here for a birthday lunch today and it was fabulous. Paula had homemade soup with really nice garlic, herb and parmesan bread and I had a fantastic bowl of chunky chilli with a flat bread and salad. Without any doubt the finest Chilli I have ever had and I have travelled a bit and eaten... More

The cafe is coming of age. Food even better, delicious, good portions, and perfect service. What's more STILL NO MUSIC!!! It is far superior to any of the eating places in Cranbrook and environs and good value for the quality. Thanks!

Everything here is done with care, just like the nursery side which has a good selection of well-tended and healthy plants. With a lovely atmosphere and plenty of space and peace to talk, no hassling, and good cakes, it is a perfect venue for an outing and a meet-up. Highly recommended.

The Walled Nursery is a lovely old walled garden, gradually in the process of being returned to its former glory; there are plants to buy and other quirky gifts, but the star of the show is the fab food at their newly opened restaurant, which is located in one of the old glass houses. Very friendly people, excellent service, really... More

My daughter and I had lunch here yesterday. We were made to feel welcome by the owner from the moment we arrived. There were roaring log fires in both the wood burners making the Vinery feel very cosy. Local artist Sandy Dooley's work is on display. There are blankets to wrap your self up in -which we loved! We both... More

We were told about this mysterious yet magical place a short drive well off the beaten track from Hawkhurst. It's one of these places you hear about about yet wonder if it'll ever live up to the promise. The setting is every bit as delicious as the breakfasts - American style pancakes and bacon and poached eggs, avocado and halloumi... More
