Queued for 10 mins to find that they had run out off everything we asked for. No scones available at 12MD!!! Not good enough I think.

I call in to Hillside for a coffee or to pick up a special plant for my beloved. Hillside has something for everyone. Plants, pots, coffee, pet food or whatever. A great garden centre on the outskirts of Belfast.
