This wonderful little restaurant located at 25 Charles St, Newport, offers a safe haven from everyday weariness, where you can enjoy bistro style food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All food at the Secret Garden Café is homemade and freshly prepared from scratch, and is meticulously executed by head chef Phil with love and care.

Voice caught up with the ever-busy chef in his kitchen to ask him a few questions:

So Phil, what’s new on the menu for spring?
The Macho Pollo Burger with seasoned chicken fillet, chirizo, riquito peppers and cheddar in a brioche bun. We will also look to introduce some new additions to the full menu for the warmer weather, some which have been on our menu before and some other brand new inventions, watch this space!

Your handmade burgers are the talk of the town – what’s your best-selling burger with the people of Newport?
The Dragon burger sells really well for those who can take the heat. It’s a handpressed steak pattie, prepared using my homemade hot sauce and comes with crispy bacon and cheddar.

You’ve just launched an exclusive burger and pint meal deal for £10 too, what burgers and drinks are included in this great offer?
A cool pint of Kozel and our classic cheese burger.

What other ways can people treat their loved ones at the Secret Garden this spring?
We have gift vouchers available, so that loved ones can be treated whatever time of year.
