Popped in here to pick up some plants and gardening bits and pieces. Stopped for lunch, which we enjoyed overlooking the river. I had the chilli with chips, guacamole, salsa and sour cream - yummy. One suggestion, change name to "St. Johns Garden Centre".

The Conservatory Restaurant at what is St Johns Garden Centre sets a generally good standard. I can particularly recommend the battered fish & chips. I can't recommend the chilli beef however, since this contained absolutely no perceivable evidence of chilli.
