Expensive and service with a sneer

Over-priced sandwiches and toasties and unhelpful, condescending staff. On the positive side, nice selction of cakes and the scones and cream teas were tasty.

This garden centre is so nicely laid out, good selection of plants and garden requirements catered for. The best bit about the place is on a sunny day it has a delightful outside seating area which is dog friendly. The food and drinks are great, average prices, but lovely view across the valley from the outside seating area. Lunch, or... More

The Christmas shop was very good this year and we bought a ridiculous dancing singing Christmas tree. It amuses and makes us smile in equal measure. We always visit the restaurant which has a very pleasant aspect... More

I have been to this restaurant on many, many occasions. That probably tells you that the food is reasonably priced, usually of good quality and tasty. The staff however leave a lot to be desired. I understand that dealing with the residents of an area with an ageing population can be trying. BUT, I'm sure they deserve a smile now... More

One of our favourite haunts whether for coffee and cake or Sunday lunch. Always found staff friendly and helpful, they even welcome our loopy labradors in the summer when we can sit outside!

Very friendly staff, clean restaurant. Breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea , either is a must. Plenty of parking and friendly staff on route to the restaurant. Portions are good and good value. Hard not to spend time browsing before and after a bite to eat. Vegetarian options are very tasty and made daily on the premises. Lovely area to sit... More
