Not your average garden centre restaurant!

You'll probably find us in here most weekends, its the best breakfast around. Highchairs for the litteuns and very friendly staff, oh yes.. And the homemade cakes are just delicious, favorite at the moment is the cherry and almond, but there's a good selection so even if its late and some are sold... read more

Scones and tea good but sandwiches were not the freshest. When we arrived we asked if they were open and they said yes but then half halfway though the order they said they couldn't even toast a sandwich! Not worth stopping here.

I am sorry to hear you were unhappy with your meal. We would have been happy to try to resolve the problem had you brought it to the attention of a member of staff at the time. We do stop serving Hot food at 2.30pm, and if you arrived after that time, that would be why we were unable to... More

What ever you do, do not eat, small portions and pricy food. The sausage pic was a flat sausage roll, the lasagne is served in a bowl and is a sloppy tasteless mess. I wouldn't ever be back. Service on the other hand was very good.

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal. Perhaps it would have been more sensible to mention it to a member of staff at the time rather than post negative comments on here 6 months later. I hope other readers take note of the positive comments rather than this tardy whinge. More

Been here many times before to eat. This time we had my mother-in-law to visit and treated her to what we knew would be an excellent meal. We were not disappointed. Good service and choice of homemade food.

Just by the Okehampton Junction of the A30, this place is well located for a refreshment stop if you're travelling. I called in to look at the garden centre and had a coffee while I was there, which was lovely. Well worth taking a look around the place as they have some really unusual pots and garden items and I... More

We stopped in on our drive back to London for takeaway coffee. Upon seeing the incredible collection of baking, we decided to eat in. The lemon drizzle and lemon meringue pie were to die for! Rosie was friendly, welcoming and made great coffee. Clean facilities. Highly recommend!

Lovely garden centre with exquisite little café serving excellent food. Have a little scrummy cake and burn it all off gardening when you get back home. Would love more aquatics though!

We met some friends for a coffee and a hot chocolate and had a slice of cake which was all very nice. The children wanted a milkshake which unfortunately they don't do. the garden centre itself is very small and quite expensive and takes about 5 minutes to walk around, but ok for a mooch.
