Stewarts are a family-owned chain of two Garden Centres, one in Christchurch and one in Broomhill, near Wimborne. Both have excellent Coffee Shops with 5 star ratings from the Food Standards Agency. We are open late on Thursday nights, when we have local musicians entertaining with live music. Our coffee shops close 1 hour before the Garden Centre closes. Please see our website for more details.

Hearty portions of well cooked food

My parents have enjoyed many meals here so my mum and I visited for lunch recently. There is a wide choice and the food all looked very tasty. We both chose the Turkey and Ham Pie which was lovely. Really big chunks of meat throughout a large slice of pie, generous portion of chips (or boiled... read more

Lovely garden centre - expensive as always but sell a vast array of goodies. Impressive tea rooms here, selling all sorts of hot and cold foods.

Sadly an impromptu breakfast stop was spoilt by discovering green mould on the bacon roll !! Luckily pre bite ! Changed by staff who just seemed not interested ! Better attention to stock rotation and storage maybe !!!

Dear DinerSouthsea, Thank you for taking the time to post a comment and I do apologise that our service level dropped below what is expected on this occasion. We do have fresh bread deliveries every morning so will be taking this up with our supplier to find out where we can add further checks to this process. If you could... More

Good value Sunday breakfast , plenty of choice . My one criticism would be that the food can be a little on the cold side if you happen to get there when it has been quiet and the food has been on the hot plates for a while.

I was at Stewarts Garden Centre as part of an event recently. I found the service and food to be exemplary. They really went out of their way to make everything perfect. And the setting is pretty good too!

I would recommend Stuarts for tea and cake. But cater for lunches,sandwiches too. After you have eaten. They have lots of plants etc afterwards.

This really is a lovely garden centre, ample parking space, disabled and child friendly. There are a few shops on the way into Stewarts, and a great Cafe inside. As you walk through the shop there are gifts for all occasions, cards and wrapping paper, as well as books. The indoor plants are all indoors( of course) and they have... More
