Restaurant description

A whimsically-styled restaurant on the ground floor of the Alton Towers Hotel, Secret Garden Restaurant serves up a great selection of British classics and international delights alongside a tasty children’s menu.

Inspired by Sir Algenon’s global adventures, the restaurant serves a variety of dishes from around the world on a brasserie-style menu that uses the freshest ingredients and most tantalising flavours. To start, enjoy succulent New Orleans chicken wings, Thai-style crispy beef or the Muchos Nachos, which are perfect to share and come with a choice of tasty topping. Mains feature classics such as hand-breaded haddock & chips, and chicken tikka masala, a variety of tasty treats from the Secret Garden Grill including burgers and steaks, or Eastern-inspired offerings such as pork sweet & sour or vegetable penang curry.

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.

    Dinner after fireworks Steak wasn’t as amazing as I’d had from SG a few years ago Sent back and got a fresh one.. but not amazing... quite fatty and grissly- was tok tired to complain. Our waiter robin.. was lovely and attentive - but clearly exhausted after a busy and tricky day. Restaurant is looking tired now.. quite boring and without the ambience of flambos.

    Being generous, I would describe the food as average. The restaurant itself is nice enough, but Alton Towers clearly take advantage of the fact that you are in their hotel miles from anywhere and so don’t have any real choice of where to eat. The prices are horrendous for the quality of food. Starters were incredibly overpriced- Ed £5 for nachos which consisted at the most 8 chips! My wife and daughter had fish and chips. The chips were ok, but the fish appeared to have been cooked from frozen and was extremely watery and unappetising. My vegetarian burger was ok, but nothing special, and the rest of the party suggested that their food was just about ok. The only thing that wasn’t massively overpriced was the wine, which at £20 for a bottle of house red is about average.

    Service was great and it was nice that it wasn't too busy but the food really is disappointing considering the cost. Breakfast on the other hand was good.

    I’m afraid we didn’t enjoy our dining experience at The Secret Garden. The staff were lovely, smiling, welcoming and efficient. The food however weren’t. Steak was decent but well over priced, the kids mash and gravy were lumpy, the kids burger was slightly tasteless and the monkfish bhaji was extremely dry. We are not food critics but eaten out enough to know prices and taste.

    The food was amazing. Really top draw. Nothing could be faulted with the food or service at our table. The only negative I could find was that on arriving at restaurant we were left waiting about 5 minutes before anyone actually acknowledged us and about 10 members of staff saw and walked past us. However I have to say the food was so good it more than made up for this

    Hi there it was a table of eight Experience was ruined before we even add the food Our waitress was very polite and friendly However she got a little bit carried away with her conversation telling us about as she wants to eat healthy But with working right she only manages to grab a McDonald’s So I said don’t let you eat food here And she remarked if you see what they do with food you don’t feel like eating here realising what she had just said She began to backpedal which was to no help Saying that you know your friends and you don’t want your friends cooking for you and things like that Unfortunately for us we had five children what needed feeding so we did stay for the duration and the food was okay Even though horrible thoughts are going through our minds why we are eating and still are We did spend £200 -ish Luckily the next day we all felt fine and carried on with our day in the park as this trip was for my boys 13th birthday I don’t wish to share my views on social media at the moment So I do look forward to your response Regards Philip wheatley
