A warm welcome to the Garden Room Restaurant

Winner of the Best Restaurant in Doncaster for couples and friends…

The Garden Room Restaurant is the destination for great unpretentious home made food all made on the premises with love and care by a great team for you to enjoy at your own leisurely pace.

What can you expect?

Fresh, simple homemade food and cakes, casual atmosphere with something a little different served during the day and occasional evenings. We are located in the village of Braithwell, just a short drive south from Doncaster, east of Rotherham and just 5 minutes from junction 1 of the M18. We have a fantastic courtyard so can offer you inside and outside space, weather permitting!


Stylish converted tannery, homemade food on the premises, quaint surroundings, easy access and ample free car park.  Consistent excellent reviews, friendly waitress service, personal breakfast or evening meetings and speciality cakes to take away.

Events / Workshops

We host a variety of fabulous events/workshops throughout the year at The Garden room Restaurant.  Do make sure you come back and check the website for new events over the next few months or sign up to our newsletter.  You’ll find all our current events HERE.


We live in the next village along from Braithwell & the Garden Room is a favourite destination for a walk on a Saturday morning. In a lovely setting both inside & outside it quirky with a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy a coffee with brunch or a cold glass of white wine with a sandwich whilst watching the world go by. The staff are always friendly & even at the busiest of times service is good. I love the breakfast menu, especially the scrambled egg with bacon but can also recommend the majority of the sandwiches (we visit regularly) and the homemade chips are worth trying. We’ve taken visitors along & sat outside in the sun with a bottle of Pinot Grigio on a Saturday afternoon & it’s now a firm favourite. A great find & definitely worth a visit if you passing through South Yorkshire.
On our way to North Yorkshire Dales from the Midlands I looked on Trip Advisor for a good lunch stop. I found good reviews for the Garden Room. Having had a fabulous lunch with very friendly service I can now join in agreeing with those excellent reviews. When travelling North again we will definitely use this as a stopover again. We rang ahead and booked as there were 6 of us which turned out to be a good idea.

Fantastic food and service. Always a friendly smile. We are regular customers, would definitely recommend. Good for full meal or just coffee and homemade cake. Would suggest you try the fish and chips on a friday (just save me some). Keep you eye out for themed evenings & afternoon tea. Booking only as the afternoon tea’s and themed evenings are very popular. Also had my hen do champagne breakfast here and really went out of there way to help.

During the Summer its a great place to visit. We mostly take friends there who live out of the area, because we can rely on well presented and great food. We have never been disappointed and the chips are ‘to die for’ :-) My New Years resolution was to eat less chips…what am I going to do now?? I can recommend anyone to The Garden Room at anytime, staff are welcoming and efficient. It does get busy and it can be conversationally noisy, but the atmosphere is buzzing.
I love this restaurant. Whether it’s a visit for just drinks, or cakes, sandwiches or a meal, it never let’s me down. Their carrot cake is to die for! Everytime I have visited I have been really impressed. Everything is cooked to perfection and the service is great.
What a fab workshop. We have really, really enjoyed it. Can’t wait for the next one. A great day out at an amazing price.

It is so refreshing to visit somewhere that is a bit different. The Garden Room seems to attract a broad cross section of clientele and a good number of regulars. Service is friendly and helpful, the menu is a good mix of contemporary and traditional, well presented and tasty. A gem of a place.  Visited October 2013

Another fab meal at The Garden Room in Braithwell, this time with my parents who aren’t local to the area. We were hoping they would be impressed with decor and food. It was a winner!
