Not sure what has changed but the staff seem a... 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.

We went for lunch and we had a severely Austic Young man with us who has to see everything before he orders! The staff were brilliant, showing him the quiche, the pasta bake and the vegetables,with much patience . These outings can be quite challenging and the staff made it perfect. Thank you. Oh.... And the food was really good!

Sunday lunch in that garden cafe. Fish very fresh and cooked just right, but batter used yellow colouring, but if it is not the E112 something like that, a permitted colour then I say nothing, otherwise I would not order it the next time.

Very nice food, but expensive. I don't know how the older generation afford to visit regularly. The drinks were nice, staff friendly and hardworking. Overall a pleasant trip! Keep up the good work!

After a long break away from eating there we thought we would try lunch here again and it was good, not brilliant but enjoyable. There was a good amount of meat in the pie, the veg was nice and the price was fair we thought. It was much quieter than we have seen it in the past - it has... More
