Nice Cup of Tea

Well worth a visit if you are in the area, plants are a bit expensive but they are top quality, the grounds are astounding and you have Restormal Castle in the distance..

We actually hear the chef tell the waitress to hurry up as the food was waiting & getting cold. We would visit again for the food... More

An excellent cafe, tasteful rustic surroundings and efficient service. Whenever we have visited the cafe has been full whatever day of the week visited which is a testament to its reputation. The food served is locally sourced imaginative, and reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and efficient and despite being busy there is never a long wait for your order... More

I have been here a few times and the food and services has always been good, this visit was no exception. Not the cheapest but you are not crammed in everything is clean and sparkling. Always found the staff to be helpful and happy to the customers. Reasonable selection on the menu and there is a specials board. Portions ample.... More

Visited for lunch with a friend. Ordered the Croque Monsieur which is described as 'A Cornish twist on a French classic, cheese and ham with a creamy white sauce, toasted'. Sadly, it also has tomato in it, which I can't eat. I returned it to the counter asking for it to be changed. A waitress then appeared at our table... More

We visited the nursery several times. It has a nice little cafe and they have a good choice of plants to choose from.

We stopped off to break our journey and didn't realise there had been so many changes since our last visit many years ago. We took our (very energetic and impatient) 3 year old for lunch in the cafe and it was easy. Whilst the menu wasn't particularly child friendly, the staff came over with colouring crayons and a puzzle sheet... More

Having read some reviews I am amazed, the staff were friendly and helpful expert plant knowledge as well as great food staff. Let's start with the garden centre, great quality plants at reasonable prices, not cheap but good quality. The staff at hand were very knowledgeable and helpful, I really do not know what else you can want from a... More

Situated in rolling Cornish countryside is this relaxing, none-touristy Garden Centre, gift shop and cafe. Inside and outside seating with fantastic views. What better place to take an afternoon Cornish Tea. Ample car parking

Tea and cake was OK but served grudgingly by miserable staff moaning that they weren't busy and it wasn't worth opening.
