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.

    After spending the day in Alton Towers it was nice to come back to the hotel for a relaxing meal. We give this restaurant 5 stars, the chefs cater for all types of food allergies or intolerance's and give 5 stars for that too. The food was cooked perfectly and taste was perfect, cant wait to go back!

    Food was very overpriced and not at all enjoyable. The menu was very scarce and the burger that I’d ordered was very disappointing, I had to leave most of it. On the plus side my son enjoyed his meal, especially the ice cream factory for pudding!
    Service was quick, staff were lovely (very engaging with my son) and ‘food’ arrived quickly too. If it wasn’t for the food quality I would have rated much higher!

    Terrible, all the staff are young and inexperienced and don't even know the drinks or food menu as are the staff across the whole business.

    Food was excellent, would highly recommend the Pork Belly, superb, so many different flavours on one plate!! On the downside we felt a bit chlostrophobic where I was sitting & table was a little on the small side, was dificult to have a conversation without shouting as the tables were set very close together. We did request a nice table position in the more open area overlooking the patio as it was my birhtday, but this was not honoured, it also took a long time to get served with drinks, but once our server arrived she was extremely nice & efficient. Overall it was great value for money & the staff worked very hard

    Slow service, mains came at the same time as starters, when the issue was sorted the mains were over seasoned and over cooked.

    When the mains and starters came at the same time the waiters had an argument over who made the mistake, making me and my partner highly uncomfortable.

    Over priced and had to wait 20 minutes for the card machine to pay, to be told it’s broken and have to pay cash.

    Very poor experience. Waited 50 minutes for food, and the good was luke warm and of poor quality. Not worth the high prices being charged. Will not be dining here again.

    We ordered a steak, a lamb, Mac cheese and hot dog plus starters. The lamb came out with no meat on it. Just bones so I showed the waiter who agreed with me and sent it back to the kitchen. I reordered another dish. The kids Mac Cheese hardly had any cheese on it. It tasted disgusting The hot dog came in a brown bread roll. My child said it was awful to which we agreed after tasting it. We complained but no-one came over to apologise, so we left. Never again.
