A whimsically-styled restaurant on the ground floor of the Alton Towers Hotel, Secret Garden serves up a great selection of British and international recipes, with a great kids' selection including numerous healthy choices.
The Secret Garden menu features a wide variety of brasserie-style flavours, made with the freshest ingredients. To start, there is forest mushroom bruschetta, vegetarian spinach and mozzarella risotto balls, and a sharing platter including salt and pepper chicken wings, BBQ ribs, and grilled corn on the cob. Hearty mains at this Alton Towers restaurant include European favourites like slow-cooked leg of duck with sweet potato mash and summer greens, a tempting grill selection of steaks and burgers, and beer battered fish and chips.
Desserts at Secret Garden restaurant include colourful creations like the oriental fruit salad, fresh lemon tart with crushed meringue and lemon curd, as well as a 'build your own sundae' option.

Shocking service ... Food ok .... We come to Alton towers hotels twice a year and have seen this restaurant decline ... No one apart from 1 server seemed to know what they were doing . Front of house greeting would be more useful in a morg .. It's not cheap to come here and you are spending more of your family time chasing your drink you have been waiting for for 30mins or the other part of your food you ordered that didn't actually arrive when it should of ...so to say we will think twice about eating here again is an understatement certainly wouldn't recommend it

Breakfast was great except no booking when we arrived at 8am on New years Eve morning. Even though reception had booked us in the previous night.
New years Eve meal was fantastic.

I was dissapointed with the secret garden experience
3 hours to get served over the 2 course diner took that long we could not have desert as to late for our children.
Food was incorrect on service had to be returned and corrected
Uncleared tables all around us and food on floors just left
Was not busy just unde Staffed and staff not interested tables left unattended and chairs left out, tables just left where they stood and not in there correct positions
Been rheee years in a row for a festive break the cost now and it's feel value for money is not the same the quality and standards have dropped severely to the extent I will not be coming next year which is a real Shame as my children love it at Christmas time
A sad customer

we were sat next to an air vent which was blowing out freezing air. We did complain about this and were told maintenance had been informed. However werent given the option to sit elsewhere. It really did make the meal unpleasnt, we were dressed in evening wear and we were all freezing cold throughout the one and a half hour sitting. We waited a long time for dessert and i had to chace it up as to not miss a show. At one point my daughter began to cry with the cold So I had to go and get her jumper, this ment my meal went cold. It really was a shame as the overall stay was enjoyed by us all.

We dined new years eve. It was fabulous! The service was outstanding from the minute we entered the restaurant. The food was delicious, very well presented, hot, on time, with outstanding waiter service. The decor was beautiful and adjusted for the festive season. Would definitely recommend. Wonderful way to see the year out!

Never eaten here before, the food was delicious, our waiter Nico was very helpful & polite. Overall a fantastic experience & one we hope to repeat again soon!

The food we had was great, but we weren't acknowledged for 25mins until I approached a member of staff and with a 3 and a 5 year old this was ridiculous and in the end we gave up waiting for starters and helped ourselves to the main Buffett. Tables around us had much better service though, it was just hit and miss which server you had and what other tables they were responsible for.
