very well-kept

Lovely gardens. Very well-kept. Nice cafe. A maze which seemed to be popular with children. Someone in a wedding dress having photos.

My husband had booked a surprise afternoon tea for me with my family. The service and quality of the food was fantastic. With a variety of sandwiches to choose from and the most delicious cakes. All of my family commented on the quality with some taking some home with them. The price was exceptionally good value and would definitely recommend... More

Good tasty food and large portions and helpful staff. We visit this restaurant a few times during each summer, sometimes taking friends. So far we have never been disappointed.

Not advertised to its full potential. This place is beautiful and fantastic. Great maze in its centre but when you walk out into the gardens it's just a wow. Has a lovely little cafe selling homemade food and treat's. Try the ice creams lots if flavours. Not badly priced and definitely fun for the family. Go enjoy get lost in... More

Very nicely laid out gardens set in 10 acres of land adjasent to the ruins Beeston Regis Priory. Though the signposting isn't brilliant. and also an interesting maze to navigate, there are several themed gardens to enjoy such as the romantic garden, riviera garden, winter garden, pine walk, some ponds and streams and a wild flower meadow. We sat in... More

We wandered round these gardens, such a tranquil place. Then a meal in the restaurant service was very good, meal too was value for money.

The GF visited the Priory Maze and Gardens whilst we stayed in Cromer. The garden is £5.50 per adult but we had 2 for 1 entry. The garden was extensive and has lots of different areas within it and looks great for those with kids. The priory isn't accessible which was a shame. The toilets at the cafe were exceptionally...

I called in the cafe at priory maze today on our last day of our holiday as a treat . we have been to the cafe many times and loved it there . having had a poor meal there last time we were a bit wary . but on ordering a jkt potato for my husband . and a cheese and tom baguette for me . the meals arrived . husbands was lovely good portions . mine had two small baguette slices. Not much filling chips . but no pot of coleslaw . this was stated on the menu as included . we know that as we always have ordered baguettes .

I called the waitress over to ask if they had stopped supplying coleslaw with baguettes now ?

She said no they usually do . went back to kitchen to ask . we were then told no they had run out of coleslaw and it would take fifteen mins to make some more . sorry !

As we had sat watching the chef using the griddle and reading text messages with his other hand . I didn't hold out much hope of getting any .

But we ate slowly . then my husband asked again is the coleslaw coming ?

Waitress asked in kitchen came back with a no they haven't done it yet .

I said well can we have a reduction on the bill then please ? As we aren't paying for what we haven't had . waitress then was seen trying to alter the bill on computer with assistance .

Another waitress came to clear plates and asked if all had been OK . I said no as we have had to argue about the coleslaw we didn't get . it's spoilt the meal now .

She said well we have taken a bit off your bill .

On paying the reduction was stated as 50p off . we then had to explain that what was actually stated on the menu hadn't been supplied which was bad .

And as my husband said had we been told part of the meal couldn't be supplied we might have ordered something else . but the worse thing was knowing the kitchen staff knew coleslaw was out at the time but still tried to give the meal to us as it was and hope we didn't notice or complain .

This really is the last time we will be visiting . the standards and portions have been cut drastically .we were regulars having a static caravan nearby . but unfortunately arguing to get the meal we paid for isn't fun . kitchen staff really don't seem bothered . the waitresses are pleasant enough . it's not their fault . so we didn't want to complain to them . but its really not good service and all we wanted was a complete meal as advertised . thanks for a lovely lunch ruined our day. .not much compensation either .
