Autumn 2020 Opening

We're delighted to be open once again, 7 days a week from 9am until 4pm daily.  In line with current guidelines, our restaurant has had to make a few changes which we hope you understand.  We're still in the same lovely location, with the same friendly team, but here's a quick overview of what to expect;

  • You can now book a table to eat in - please email to do so
  • As of the start of October, we are offering a reduced hot & cold menu alongside a great range of take away items including sandwiches, hot drinks & ice creams - see the MENU HERE
  • The dining in menu is slightly reduced compared to our normal offering, but there is plenty to choose from
  • Afternoon Tea can be booked, but please do so 48 hours in advance by emailing
  • We will be following government advice with regards to hand sanitising stations on entering, increased cleaning of all public areas and requesting your contact details if you are dining in
  • Email contact is preferred still at this point rather than phoning, as many of our office team are not working on site yet


The Garden Room isn’t just about our gorgeous location in The Mansion at Roundhay Park, it’s about using fine local ingredients to make outstanding local food.

Our Location

Our diners can enjoy their food in the surroundings of our restaurant at one of the highest points in Roundhay Park. The views from our terrace encompass lakes, woodland and 700 acres of the finest parkland in Leeds.

If you are coming to us via car, you will be able to park on Mansion Lane just outside - parking is free and there are no time restrictions.

Our Food

Our clientele range from the walkers of the park to diners coming for a special meal, and lots more besides. That’s why we have developed a broad menu and you can be sure that our ingredients are of the highest quality whatever your dish.

Throughout the week you can order from our main menu, which has our sandwich options, afternoon tea, brunch and a whole host of cakes and desserts.

If you don’t fancy any food, we can still offer you a drink (warm or cold) overlooking the park. We have an outdoor terrace area which is perfect for a relaxing glass of wine with friends or better still, a chilled glass of prosecco in the park!

Our restaurant is very popular with our diners, as seen by being given a “certificate of excellence” by Trip Advisor, which is given for consistently good feedback. Due to this we can get busy, especially during our Sunday lunch service, so we do recommend booking a table beforehand if you can - it's easy to do with our online system.
