The Walled Garden Helen's Bay


Get ready to set your clocks one hour ahead, and "Spring forward" with a delicious lunch to celebrate the official awakening of summer in the Walled Garden

You will be welcomed with a refreshing summer cocktail, before a relaxing stroll through the garden where you will hear about our exciting garden restoration project and vision for the future. You might even pick up a few gardening tips in preparation for the warmer months ahead!!

This will be followed by lunch served in Old Mill House, created by talented local chef, Nina Christinacce, from Lightfoot, Bangor who shares our passion and vision for the environment and will use fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, as well as whatever bounty the garden has to offer.

The unique heritage feel of the garden will be reflected in the nostalgic table settings with mismatched china dinnerware, vintage floral linen and freshly cut flowers.

A selection of non-alcoholic refreshments will be available at lunch, but please bring your own beverage of choice if desired.
