Visited here today and impressed- this isn't your normal cafe in a garden centre. Vegetarian meals and also gluten free meals on offer- home made quiches and lots of lovely cakes. Excellent lattes and very clean every where- definitely worth a break from garden shopping.

Many garden centres sell food, but most seem to be overpriced and uninspired. Stewarts is an exception to the rule, with decent food (excellent cakes!) very competitively priced. The "afternoon tea for two" is a particular bargain consisting of a plate of 8 little sandwiches (4 varieties), plus a second plate with two small cakes or similar (recently they were... More

We've visited Stewart's twice now and on both occasions have been very impressed. The centre has a wide range of products of good quality for every aspect of the garden. The cafe/restaurant is superb. The food is of a very high standard and the cakes are out of this world. Will be visiting again soon!

Went here with friend for lunch. The garden centre itself is very extensive with more items than the average. The restaurant has a very good choice of hot and cold meals, sandwiches, cakes and deserts. All the staff I met were very polite and the tables were kept clear and clean. There is a small outdoor eating area and as... More

I made the mistake of going in at 12.30, it was very busy. There was a fairly long que for hot food and some confusion over who went where. I thought cold drinks were expensive. It was quite loud in the dining area and I have hearing issues so think that if I had gone with a friend or colleague,... More

If you are looking for somewhere serving an afternoon tea for two you will not be disappointed. Plenty of good sandwiches cakes and scones. Bargain and believe me we have had a few very expensive cream teas and this matches them. We have not tried the lunch time menu but will return as we are down in Dorset most weekends

We called in for coffee and ended up buying four birthday presents and two anniversary gifts. Staff we're well informed and very friendly. The ladies on the tills were especially helpful. Going back soon to try the vegetarian breakfast and to buy some of the more unusual plants.

We called in for lunch on a wet Friday afternoon. The car park was absolutely packed and we had to go into some over flow car park which was full of puddles as it was not tarmac. That aside when we got into the restaurant there was hardly any food left of the hot variety and the choice was fish... More
