“Great views of possible plant purchases”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A great little place, especially if you get in early. They have an 'early bird' offer from 10.00 but I am not sure if I benefited from this or not. For £10.50 I got 2 x 187cl 'bottles of wine', a mug of coffee and a full English breakfast with local sausages.. I was entertained by a robin flying around who was quite immune to the fake birds of prey hanging from the girders, presumably to frighten them off.
Apart from this wonderful breakfast I could have chosen a simple cake and coffee. All the cakes looked very good and the roast lunches too.

“Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Palm House is justly popular. Even midweek it is always busy. The food ranges from competent breakfast to full on roast dinners with a good range of alternatives at various prices. Also good for afternoon tea with lethal cakes!
Special mentions go to the ciabata based lunches with marinated olives and salad and to the delicious creme brulee.
We use the Palm House a lot and, apart from family, I have also taken business friends there when a more formal meal would have been innapropriate.

“A pleasant meal at a reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

This restaurant serves good wholesome food at a reasonable price. Not quite waitress service (although this is available for larger groups), in that you see what is available and order at the counter and pay, and then your meal is brought to you. The seating and tables are failrly basic but comfortable and the restaurant itself is in a glasshouse extension of the Manor Nursery Garden Centre. It can get busy in high summer.

“A home from home for Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

My wife booked a small family gathering here to celebrate my 60th birthday. They arranged a lovely table for 10 and a high chair for our new grandson. Everyone enjoyed the scrumptious roasts and hot and cold desserts - all for less than £10 a head. Food and service was first-class. Nothing can quite compare to a home-cooked Sunday lunch - but this comes close!
