“such a shame, compared to how it once was”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

went there today for some bedding plants, wish i hadnt bothered. the gift shop and entrance had the lights off, the plants were half dead, polytunnels ripped apart, and i think i saw 3 kinds of African Violets, 2 of them were getting ready to die. I really wont bother going anymore

“Lovely food, service was great worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Lovely food, service was great I love the inside and how it is all done in wood to look like a log cabin.. Would highly recommend, worth a visit. I went with my husband and fiends for his birthday and we would go back again.

“VIOLETS! ????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stopped off on the way to Norfolk. Sounded like a good idea. When we parked up place looked shut down but was open. The shop was dark and dingy, plants were all dead and a few violets were amongst other plants. Definitely not worth wasting your time. Should be shut down. .

“Very poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Depressing attraction if you can call it an attraction. All the plants on sale were dead, the shop was in darkness, all signage had been removed, it had the appearance if a derelict site. Not worth the effort to get there.

“A shed with a few plants”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

To call this an African Violet Centre is a complete Joke, I have more different species in my house! It took us 20 seconds to wander around, we thought we would have a cup of tea but there was no one around and so after 5 minutes we left.
