“yummy cake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

went with my friend - huge buckets of coffee and amazing cakes.

was really impressed with all the food on offer and am hoping to go again.

The lady who served us was not quite as friendly as i would have hoped but everything else amazing.

“Well laid out, good plain food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The restaurant is well laid out, with a good choice of different foods. The soup was delicious, the vegetable chilli was OK. There can sometimes be quite a queue for the coffee, but the staff are very helpful. A vast improvement on the last restaurant!

“Good garden centre.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Very nice large garden center, lots of plants and a variety of things to buy, such as gifts, things for pets and furniture.

New restaurant area looks quite nice, although haven't eaten there yet
.
We had a coffee in the "Costa" but this definitely isn't a proper Costa, drinks aren't up to brand standards of an actual Costa, which is a shame.

“Cakes to die for...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Popped into Haskins West End for lunch with a colleague. Excellent food and wonderful service. Perhaps slightly slow at clearing the tables, but overall an excellent experience.

However, post lunch, treatede myself to a cake. Wow, the Lemon Meringue Muffin was probably one of the best cakes I've ever eaten. Delicious!
We'll be back.
