Really nice meal. Chicken tikka was delicious.

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.

Service extremely poor. Everyone gives an excuse as to why your table is nothing to do with them when you make basic requests during the meal. Over two hours to complete a meal with two young children (one fell asleep waiting) is not acceptable. Food is average at best. Steak and chips was good, but our other options had little to commend them and were mostly tastlesss. Who decided to put quarters of unchopped iceberg lettuce on boards/plates? This leads to fluid leaking all over the plate, the table and the diner when you eat it! Overall poor.

After reading mixed reviews before booking i was a little apprehensive that i would be left dissapointed with my dining choice however other places were fully booked so had to go ahead and i was actually surprised, i have no idea what people have to complain about, i am a bit particular about things but i really couldn't pick fault with much at all! Presentation of food was very good, the chicken pengang curry was lovely as was the tempura veg with noodles (nice to see optional vegetarian dishes that have some thought rather than usual dishes such as macaroni cheese, fajitas etc). A little disappointed that the childrens meals did not come with veg, appreciate some children dislike veg but the option to add it would have been welcome, very good that even though children's menu states under 12's that even older 'children' are still able to order from it if they wish which then caters for those fussier eaters who would possibly struggle to find something from the regular menu. Clean, airy atmosphere, staff friendly and very attentive and overall cost of meal was as you would expect to pay for a family of 4.

Arrived 10 minutes before reservation after 20 minutes had to ask to order drinks. 45 minutes later still not got a drink asked a member of staff she said she would sort it 15 minutes later had to ask for drinks again. This was now after 10pm on a 9pm reservation. Food arrived but one persons order was missing so had to wait again.
Food was okay but not worth the price had to then ask for bill as nobody came back to check on drinks etc.
Would not recommend I would hate to dine when it’s busy the place was a quarter full.
Said Thankyou on the way out but our waiter ignored us probably because we did not tip.

Service was very unprofessional. The greeting lady and the chef has an argument on the floor and then she complained about speaking to HR the rest of the time.

Little disappointed that you had stopped doing pancakes for breakfast as my daughter loved them, the staff did make her some waffles though which was great
Eggs weren’t cooked very good though to be honest very sloppy whites which were inedible
Evening meal - all good, just a comment regarding the prawn cocktail, I think you could justify charging the price when you use large prawns like king prawns rather than the small prawns I think it’s overpriced for what you get but everything tasted great

Booked in for 9:15pm arrived and ordered straight away as Kids were famished after an afternoon in the water park. 2x adult burgers a kids burger and a vegetarian moussaka. Dinner arrived nearly an hour and a half later. Not sure why they just kept telling us fois was on its way. When tables are cleared down and breakfast set up and you still haven’t received your dinner it sort of puts you off. Burgers were ok nothing special and the veg moussaka was more a bowl of mush that seemed to have been microwaved and topped with some cheese which definitely had not seen a grill or oven...Kids were past eating by the time food arrived and overall a disappointing experience.
