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 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 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.
