Unfortunately it has been more of a miss than hit lately. Dirty cups and cutlery, staff rarely clearing tables. It may be underfunded or understaffed, I am not sure, but I doubt we'll be back again soon. Cleaner places to go nearby on Eccleshall Road.

My friend and i went to the cafe for lunch today. What a disaster. Firstly, we couldn't find a menu, queued for 10 mins, to be given a menu and then having to queue again before ordering our food. I ordered a cheese and ham toastie, and my friend a fish finger sandwich. 10 mins later we were then told... More

This place used to be lovely and we came loads when the kids were little. It's horrible now and I wouldn't advise that anyone visit here. My glass was filthy. The sugar bowl was disgusting. The floor hadn't been swept for days and the toilets stank and were revolting. The choice of cakes was minimal and looked unappealing and the... More

I have to start off by saying how nice the botanical gardens is and what a shame that this cafe almost actually spoils the whole place with its poor service & disgusting food. We sat down at a table and went through the menu, chose chips and sausage for the kid and me and the wife chose the only vegetarian... More

My in-laws visited on Saturday and were extremely disappointed with the service here. The food was OK but overpriced, still they enjoyed it. However, the staff need to learn some manners and customer service skills!! If you have a job in a cafe you should at least look like you want to be there! The waitress also splashed brown sauce...

A great location overlooking the beautiful gardens and greenhouses. The menu was basic which some interesting specials. Portions were small for lunch. We had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and the special of ricotta and Beetroot strudel. The eggs were over-cooked and the strudel was dry and not what I expected. The side salad was far from generous looking more... More

Saturday morning on a day when there were many additional visitors due to a plant sale....nearly an hour to wait for three coffees and two flapjacks! We will never go again. Plus tired furniture, no shelter for dog lovers, not cheap. Yuk! No stars! But the gardens are great so somebody needs to make some hard decisions! Take my advice,... More

Monday lunch time disaster. Had to wait 40 minutes for £7.00 sandwich. The lady at the till was rude and very abrupt, the tables were left uncleared and dirty, this cafe, that could be a little gem, is a shambles. The food was very disappointing, hot roast pork sandwich, turned out to be an overcooked, tough pork steak served with... More

Visited with family. Very slow service and extremely over priced. Tiny jacket potatoes. Ham sandwich absolutely drenched in piccalilli. Wouldn't visit again!

Food was very good. We were quite a large group but all the food arrived hot and salads was lovely. Staff couldn't,t do enough for us as we had three young children using high chairs. Would return to eat there again. That would make it my 4th visit.

Thank 746Gloria55
