Lovely, friendly staff!

Visited the Parkridge Centre when I was attending an outside theatre show - will definitely go back as the staff were lovely and the coffee and cakes were fresh ... even at 7pm in the evening!

Be kind

The lovely lady who manages the cafe gives a fabulous service. Currently the toilets have to be closed due to COVID some members of the public think it’s ok to be abusive to the staff. It’s not ok the staff are complying with the rules. Whoever that person was who spat at the staff hang your head in shame. If you are in the park show your love an support at the cafe x

Very good stop off.
Feb 2020
One of our “go to” places when we have the Grandkids. 3 hours free parking is a rarity these days & it’s very popular place.
The cafe itself is a WArwickshire Wildlife Trust property & has a good selection of hot drinks & meals with VEGAN options (even soya milk for your tea) .
Service is a little slow as they do the hot drinks there & then so if you’ve bought a kids toy you still have to queue with the others ordering drinks.
Still that’s a small gripe. The hot food we ordered came out smartly & we watched the birds on the feeders thru the large windows.
Very good place to go.

Short, but pleasant visit

Had a quick walk through the park. Cafe was fine and staff were okay. Nothing wrong with the food, although we didn't get past paninis and tea cakes.

A good place to bring young children
Jul 2019
This Centre is within Brueton & Malvern Parks. It has a building with a cafe & toilets & useful information - a good place taht young children would feel at home.The grounds are somewhat "natural" and seem rather over-grown, but that is probably to encourage wild-life. The grounds include what was constructed as the ornamental lake when it was attached to the historic Solihull mansion of Malvern Hall. A pleasant quiet place for a walk & ,if you are fortunate, some interesting bird -watching

Has potential

A bit of training, care, attention to detail and this place should thrive. Put a Costa here, for example although I’d prefer something independent. Everyone and everything unhappy or indifferent. Not busy, but many things could have been done. Some bird food in the feeders for a start!

Hi, thanks for taking the time to give feedback on your recent visit to the Parkridge Centre and I'm sorry to hear of your negative experience. We will look at this with the team at Parkridge and hopefully your next visit will be a better one. We do try to keep the feeders filled up, but there are some extremely determined squirrels who get through the bird food very quickly.

After a good walk around the park, we called in for a quick snack and a drink. It’s a lovely place just a shame about the rude staff working a please and thank you goes a long way. At least out children used their manners.

Cafe visit
Dec 2018 • Solo
I love the park itself, its quiet, relaxing and you can get away from the crowds if you wish. Today I visited the cafe. I haven't been here for over a year now due to illness and it has changed for the Worst. The menu is so expensive compared to when I last came. I ordered a toasted sandwich and it came within an acceptable time. However the waitress dropped it on my table and walked off. As I had given her eye contact I said thank you. She didn't even glance in my direction as she walked off looking thunder faced. I thought this was quite rude. The cafe was not busy either. The old staff were so polite, friendly and pleasant that it was always a pleasure coming here. I'm afraid that customer service skills were sadly lacking on this visit
