Come relax and enjoy good food in pleasant surroundings. The Mad Hatters is not your usual Garden Centre Restaurant. It is full of traditional charm with local memorabilia on display of the Braund Family that once resided just a stones throw away at Buck Mills.
The restaurant overlooks the lake that is fed by a babbling brook, which turns the water wheel on the mill house. Children are welcome to feed the fish under close supervision of an adult. The gardens surrounding the restaurant are full of interesting ideas and you will often see our staff out there busy tending to the plants.
At Lunch time you are guaranteed a real treat, our varied day time lunch time menu is supplemented by a daily specials menu that is available from 12pm until 2pm.
We aim to use locally produced food where ever possible, including local free range eggs, meats and cheese. We also aim to cater for any dietary requirements you may have, just make our waitresses aware when you place your order.
On Monday & Thursdays we run a Two Meals for £12 special menu that always has a varied choice of home cooked food. It’s always best to book a table to avoiding missing out so call us to reserve your space.
Please be aware that we only take bookings from 12pm-12:30pm on both Monday & Thursday. This is to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to dine with us.
On Sunday we run our award winning Sunday Carvery from 12pm-2pm. We highly recommend booking as we are often fully booked.
We offer both well done and medium rare beef, honey roast ham and either pork or turkey. The Pork and Turkey are rotated on a weekly basis but if you would like to know what meat will be available please don’t hesitate to ring up and ask one of our staff.
Please be aware we have a reduced breakfast menu on Sundays however we can still provide breakfast sandwiches, toast and our normal cakes and scones.
