Visited today 12 August for what was our first visit since lockdown, Very well organised and felt completely safe.
There is a wonderful array of plants and garden accessories all at very competitive prices. I shall certainly be buying my goods from here.
Called in to The Topiary tea rooms, again well organised, excellent home cooked food. Highly recommended

I just read a 1 star review about Hollybeck and I wanted to say that in years of visiting and buying plants I have always received excellent help, advice and wonderful plants. The staff are lovely and the plants are very good quality. As an assessor for the RHS I think these are the best plants around this area for both quality and price. I hope the new branch at Floralands will keep going because it is very near to me and its lovely to be able to drop in regularly.

I can’t believe I’ve never visited this garden centre before, even though friends had told me how good it is, and they’re absolutely right. A fantastic well stocked collection of all sorts of plants and shrubs, at reasonable garden centre prices too. The coffee shop was good too. Will definitely visit again. All the staff we’re very pleasant too.

Hollybeck Nurseries offer good quality plants etc at reasonable prices. For the plant side I give five stars.
We decided to try the Topiary Tea Room as the arrangements looked well thought through and safe.
We ordered a full English breakfast each. One normal and mine vegetarian. Be aware that the full English is very large ideal for those people with big appetites.
Our breakfast arrived and we immediately noticed that the underside of the toast was burnt. I like well done food however burnt toast is not good. The toast had been put burnt side down on the plate. Eggs very jelly like on top. Beans very little taste. My partner loves sausages however these were so spicy he was unable to eat them.
I know we are all different with different tastes however we regularly eat out enjoying breakfasts at a number of local establishments and feel happy with all of their produce.
I did inform one of the staff of our disappointment and the response appeared to be a shrug. I’m sure a drink and cake etc. is good however saddened will not return for cooked food.

A large car park made parking and access easy to this friendly and welcoming garden centre.
There was a great range of gardening products and plants all beautifully displayed. The staff response to a question I asked was clear and informative and I'll certainly go back to buy the products I asked about when they’re back in stock.
The Topiary Cafe is clean and attractive and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The cakes look wonderful, the coffee's great and the lunches delicious!
Overall, Hollybeck is one of the best Garden Centres I’ve been to and I’d recommend a visit there to any keen gardener - or anyone who enjoys coffee and cake!!

Lovely healthy plants - huge choice and reasonable prices. Nice selection of gifts. The restaurant taking Covid regulations so seriously. The process explained beforehand and reaffirmed on the menu. Polite and helpful staff. Nice vegan cake and choice of two non dairy milks. Would highly recommend this dog friendly nursery

Had lunch at the Cafe on a Sunday. Food was delicious, came out promptly, had the ham and mushroom omelette. Great selection of cakes, Mars tiffin was very very nice. Very impressed with covid safety measures in place and felt very comfortable and relaxed eating out here. Staff very efficient and friendly, tables were cleared and sanitised quickly upon people leaving. Overall very much recommend, even my dear father was impressed and that's saying something

This was our first visit since reopening after the Covid shutdown. A member of staff welcomed us at the door and explained the new procedures. This was most helpful as we then felt at ease.
We had a pot of tea, I had Victoria sponge which was absolutely superb, and my husband had cherry & almond sponge which he said was very nice too. We will most definitely be back, on our next visit we hope to try lunch.

After being a loyal customer for many years, with family, friends and I spending thousands of pounds. A dispute over £12.99, Hollybeck Nursery evoked my privilege card and cancelled, refunded all future booked talks and events. This is how they treat customers when things go wrong. Everyone is welcome to visit this Nursery but I wanted you to be aware.

The customer in question purchased an online voucher from this outside company for an event. As no money for this passed to us we were are totally unable to provide a refund. As soon as we were aware of the potential issue, out of good will we took the time to bring this to their attention so they could seek a refund. The customer in question has been asked not to frequent our business in the future as a result of numerous upsetting altercations with staff members. As a business Hollybeck Nurseries welcome all constructive comments and criticisms. We know we don't always get it right but we all work hard as team to meet our customers very varied needs. On this occasion however, the fault was with an online voucher company. We hope our previous positive reviews speak for the quality of our business and service we provide.

Visiting with our Granddaughter for lunch we had a superb meal and excellent friendly service. With a large menu and daily specials there is always something to tempt your taste buds. Today I went for the game pie, full of meat and rich gravy with new potatoes and perfectly cooked vegetables, My wife had a beautiful butternut soup and roll and granddaughter's eyes lit up with a Jamaican chicken wrap mango chutney, fries and side salad. We also had to try a slice of cake afterwards, when you see the selection you will see why its too hard to say no.
we visit every couple of months and it is consistently great food and service. its a very friendly place as well.
in the Nursery the quality of plants is very high and you can get the plants not found in the large corporate garden centres. The are quite a few garden centres in the area large and small so if you are visiting the area you could easily take in 4/5 in a day. but I will be very surprised if Holly beck doesn't end up top of your list.
