    I walk around Delapre Abbey twice daily with my dogs. I was excited when I heard the cafe was to open in April and it looked great! However the reality left a lot to be desired with regard to pricing ...  more »

  • I found the new tea rooms to be a bit pretentious and expensive. Something a bit more humble would have been perfectly adequate and encouraged us to go more often. Despite that, it's still a lovely place to visit and walk around; plus - miniature railway every month. Choo choo!
  • Tried out the newly opened cafe. A little bit overpriced on the food. The cafe itself is lovely. Seemed a little chaotic,but they are still finding their feet. Wish it every success and I will be back.
  • One of the best places in Northamptonshire. Such a beautiful and peaceful place to spend time or walk the dogs. The gardens are beautiful all year round
  • Please make sure that you look at the time scale these reviews have been read as the Tea rooms have been closed for a few years now and even the marquee that was there last year is no more, this is just unacceptable that the council have not provided what they insisted would be carried on, I use this public gardens and have done for many years and seen how they have pandered to people with influence, power and money, doing "good works" Yes only to benefit themselves or their cronies ! They have never once mentioned the fact that these gardens were brought back from a terrible state, because the council would not spend money to restore them, by other groups including Learning Disabled ! If you do go then make sure to take your own seating as all the previous benches that were there, and there were many have somehow "disappeared" I wonder who's gardens they have ended up in ?
  • Nice walks anytime of year
