We were always regular visitors, at least 2 to 3 times a week, but since the restaurant has changed management we rarely go. However we went for coffee and tea cake today (Sunday). At our visit at 10.45 the place was deserted so I selected a table which had been cleared but unfortunately had not been wiped to remove dribbles... More

we have just visited the restaurant. We had to queue for at least ten minutes before our order was taken as the restaurant was severely understaffed. I finally gave my order, soup, toast and coffee. The soup was put on my tray immediately but I had to stand at the counter for another ten minutes before the toast and coffee... More

Garden centres can sometimes be hard work - not here though -having spent quality time shopping for plants, a nice fresh breakfast is just the job. Great service, great food at a price anyone can afford. The staff throughout the centre are a credit to the management team.

The Garden Centre seemed slightly different and I see from earlier reviews that it has changed hands since last year. Still worth a visit and the restaurant is handy as a lunch/tea stop. I had the soup this time which was delicious and hubby was pleased with his cheese sandwich. Hot meals are available and also salads and we have... More

It was a very hot day when we called in for lunch. The Centre had recently changed hands but the catering staff were the same. Our lunch was uninspiring but it was pleasant to be able to sit outside an enjoy it. The food on the servery did look fresh and appetising and the staff very helpful.
