The Garden Restaurant at Gates

Gates Garden Centre, Somerby Road, Cold Overto, Oakham, Leics, LE15 7Q, United Kingdom
Telephone01664 454309


A cosy and stylish restaurant seating up to 360 people; with an outdoor verandah that’s perfect for summer and a lovely ‘snug’ area by the wood burner in winter. It’s a warm and relaxed environment that welcomes visitors of all ages.

Serving a range of food for all tastes; including light lunches, coffees and a wide range of refreshments – there is something for everyone, whatever your appetite! If afternoon tea is more to your taste, we’ve found that ours are very popular and we stack them full of luxury scones, jam and sandwiches.

Treat yourself to a break in The Garden Restaurant and take some time to enjoy the views of the beautiful lakes and surrounding countryside.

If it’s just a quick bite in a quieter spot that you prefer, or a tasty cup of barista coffee and a slice of homemade cake, then head to our cosy Courtyard Coffee Shop instead.

Located within the popular Gates Garden Centre, why not make a day of it and browse the extensive range of indoor and outdoor plants, as well as many other items, including garden care and hardware, gifts, homeware, outdoor living, wildlife and pet care?
