“Lovely place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Visited the centre on a glorious hot day, sat outside on the patio for coffee & cake then strolled around the gardens, including the maze - (this is reasonably new & not yet fully grown). It was a totally relaxed place & there seemed to be staff everywhere being helpful & cheerful. A quick stroll through the gift shop and a few purchases in the farm shop ended a very enjoyable visit.

“Enjoyable and informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Visited the garden centre and café here today. They stock a great range of plants, trees and shrubs as well as garden furniture and associated items. Garden staff we spoke to, although busy, were friendly and knowledgeable. The café was a good stop for a light lunch - although more substantial meals were also available. The prawn sandwiches and jacket potato were full of prawns and the ham sandwich was home baked ham - not the 'plastic' type. For the garden enthusiast you will find something unusual here, and if you're new to gardening you will find lots of information and friendly advice! Plenty of car parking, interesting garden shop ..... whats not to like !

“5 star lunch in a lovely environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Derwen Garden Centre has a great range of plants to suit all gardens. Friendly and helpful staff, an interesting shop where you can buy something different and an amazing cafe/restaurant. We called for lunch yesterday (just after two) and were pleased to see 4 dishes still available on the 'Specials Board' - including Pea and Spinach Soup, Vegetable Bhajis and Pickled Vegetables with Yoghurt and Mint Dressing (absolutely delicious), Slow Cooked Belly Pork with Five Spiced Chinese Vegetables (again delicious according to my husband) and Baked Plaice with Garden Vegetables. We only wanted a light lunch and did not sample the two homuemade puddings - strawberry cheesecake and bread and butter pudding. The presentation and taste would grace any 5 star restaurant. The price was reasonable and the opportunity to drop in for a lunch like this makes it a real find. For sunnier days there is a large outside patio area - just the place to shop and lunch with friends.

“Shame about the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Been visiting the garden centre for approximately five years and have enjoyed having lunch there. However, I think they must have changed the chef as the standard of the specials menu has dropped recently. Had the mince beef hotpot on Saturday as wasn't keen on anything else. To me hotpot should be covered with layers of potato but not this one. It had four small new potato size slices on top of the tasteless minced beef and chopped carrots. This was served with beans and even more carrots. Very disappointing.
