Don't be put off by the approach through a rather jaded garden centre there's a warm welcome and delicious good value food waiting at Mrs Miller's. Locally sourced juicy and well aged beef,melt in the mouth lamb and a great sea bass and risotto- all three of us dining here enjoyed our lunches and were only sorry that we couldn't... More

We've had cakes and coffees here when visiting the garden centre / nursery, but first time for evening meal. Excellent food and service - would definitely recommend.

We ate an epic Sunday lunch at Mrs Miller's looked after by Rebecca and her team with James in the kitchen. Roast Goose, beef with Yorkshire pudding and lamb followed by damson bakewell tart with custard, bramble soufflé and egg custard tart. A lovely atmosphere. It was outstanding.

My husband and I had lunch here as it had been recommended to us, and we were glad we did! It was much more than I was expecting from a restaurant next to a garden centre- the food was delicious and the service welcoming. To start my husband had the terrine (lovely) and I had the salmon,prawn and scampi (simple... More

A leisurely lunch and afternoon. Food absolutely fabulous. We started with twice baked cheese soufflé, pate, shrimps followed by gorgeous steak. Lemon posset for dessert. All beautifully served. Service was excellent. Prosecco was gorgeous too!!! As usual gluten free for me with no problems.

We visited this café after seeing a sign for it when we drove past the day before. It was a bit awkward to push the wheelchair up the hill at the back of the garden centre but there is another entrance that's more flat. The food is of a very high quality and more like restaurant food than what you'd... More

Popped in for lunch. It's attached to a garden centre by the level crossing in Culgaith. If we hadn't been recomended to the cafe we might have given up searching for it. It's on the right hand side of the garden centre. What a lovely venue inside! The display of gorgeous home cooked cakes nearly persuaded us to forget lunch... More

This restaurant is part of a garden centre however on a Friday and Saturday evening it opens as a restaurant serving outstanding an fine dining experience. I found it by chance during a holiday and consider it as a hidden gem.
