Service was great. Very polite staff. Catered for my toddlers eating needs. Carvery for 2 and pulled pork burger delicious. Fish was apparently not so good.

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.

With unique touches like a central tree ornament and a family-friendly vibe, the Alton Towers Resort Secret Garden is a 33-minute drive from Stoke-on-Trent.

    We were staying at the AT Hotel so booked a time slot for "breakfast" in the secret garden.
    It was the weekend so it was very busy however we were seated quickly & the service was good - as it always is.
    Unfortunately the same cannot be said about some of the breakfast, as when changes are made it's never for the better it seems.
    We visit & stay up to 3 times a year & this was the worst we have sampled.
    Although the food was replenished very quickly when it ran out - it seems cheaper alternatives are now being used.
    Before there were small individual pots of flavoured yoghurts to choose from - now 2 massive bowls 1 x natural 1 x berry, so unless you like those flavours then you go without.
    They have taken away items from the children's section - chipolata sausages & spaghetti hoops, replacing them with normal sausages & tinned tomatoes!
    They offer Marmite for toast but not Nutella anymore....... kids love Nutella!
    There is a very large selection/variety to choose from to suit most individuals, however this time we felt it wasn't as nice as it had been previously, so we left a little disappointed.

    The service was excellent but the food was n ot good. The food was dry over cooked and generally very disappointing.

    The restaurant was convenient as staying in hotel. The table was good and waitress friendly but the service was awful. Drinks order taken quickly but drinks took ages to arrive. The bottle of white wine was warm and was not opened. The food was good but really slow. Starters were just slow but we were still waiting for our mains after an hour. We had to chase the food. The waitress looked embarrassed. The kids were getting restless due to the wait. A shame as could have been a really good night.

    We would like to thank Aaron the chief for coming out to see us and getting us something to eat that was different off the menu I'm a vegetarian and my daughter is allergic to nuts. We are really fussy eaters too and Aaron put himself out to help us out. So excellent service thank you.

    we had breakfast and an evening meal while staying at Alton Towers and firstly if you have any food tolerances then you will be ok here as i have a problem having salt and this restaurant was very helpful and accommodating with this. The food was of a high standard and came out on warm enough plates to keep the food hot while you ate the meal. Desert was super too. Breakfast wasn't as good as not much choice on hot food and no longer offer scrambled egg, so i was disappointing with that as i do like a bit of scrambled egg. If you encounter a young lady called Zoe who was working on both breakfast days we attended, she is most hard working member of staff in the restaurant and a real credit to the company.
