Really pleasantly surprised by this place!

I have lived in the area for about 7 months and have never been to this place as it is not near the bus stops and I do not have a car. Was taken there on Saturday and what a lovely surprise. Very good quality and quantity food - reasonable prices and served by very pleasant people. Lovely view... read more

What a great little find! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The cream teas were delicious, though the other cakes on display looked delicious. May have to come back and try a meal here. All in all the whole garden centre itself was a pleasant experience.

We have visited this restaurant a few times and in the past have had a pot of tea with the excellent home made cakes. Today we ordered coffee (latte) which is produced with one of those push button automatic machines. The result was coffee that tasted like one imagines dishwater would taste. Utterly vile!! This is a shame because this... More

We're so sorry you were disappointed with your coffee. We use fair trade coffee beans and fresh milk in all our coffee and it is made in an Italian bean to cup machine. For many of our customers the coffee is not only acceptable it's exceptional so your experience is hard to understand. If you'd have brought the coffee back... More

A good range of lunch options at very reasonable prices, good service and good food - yes, this is a garden centre and not a restaurant but some of the latter could learn a lot from this outlet.

Home made cakes, steak & kidney pie and a range of snacks and main meals. Very good quality and also has daily specials. It is very popular with locals and can get busy at lunchtime but it is worth it. Also a great design shop and .... god plants too

Hardly a better setting than the restaurant at the Sidmouth Garden Centre. With rolling countryside around, it's a good experience to sit outside on a sunny day and we have enjoyed many a coffee and cake in that sylvan setting. The coffee is usually ok, the hot chocolate delicious and the cakes pretty good - especially their 'brownie' - one... More

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
