Use this country style café regularly on way home after our weekly shop in Okehampton. Staff are so obliging and friendly. A sound base of good home cooked meals. Can well recommend homemade soup with warm roll. Today I enjoyed a carrot, leek and thyme risotto followed by a most delicious lemon meringue roulade whilst my husband had ham, egg... More

This place is a real find. We've stopped at all manner of dreadful places on the A30 on our way down to and back from Cornwall, but the Country Lanes Garden Centre is a winner in every way. The food is simple and sensibly priced but very tasty, and the menu has plenty on it for all lunch tastes. We... More

Fantastic food! my husband and I had an amazing breakfast roll on our drive down to Cornwall. We noticed a good lunch menu as well so planned a visit back for our return journey. The cooked lunch was the perfect way to warm us up on our very wet day of driving and was made fresh from locally sourced produce.... More

We were passing by so popped in to buy some garden things, thought we would try out the cafe. Glad we did, lovely food, friendly staff, clean toilets and a good range of garden things. Came home with lots of things for our garden, will definitely pop by again!

Nearly went by this looking for a little chef. So glad we went in. Had a lovely meal. On the out side they only mentioned coffee but the food on offer was lovely as were the staff.

Unfortunately the service was very poor. Lunch was ok but by the time our food came out we had already been put of by a rude member of staff.

Visited Saturday at lunchtime, struggled to find a clean table. Although there were 3 staff on duty only one had made any attempt to clear crockery and wipe down tables. Is it lack of supervision or lack of training. Having said that the coffee was very good and homemade cakes lovely.

We have had the busiest weekends since we opened during June this year, and Saturdays have been especially busy. I know that there have been times when tables have not been cleared immediately , but please be assured that behind the scenes everyone is working extremely hard and wants to maintain our high standards. I suspect that the 6+ members... More

We thought that there would be a lot more to this garden centre, it was a little basic. So many centres now have expanded into the gift market, kitchenware etc and although some things were available to buy the choice was very limited. However if you want weed killer etc and garden things i guess it would serve its purpose,... More

So sorry you were disappointed. It has taken us 16 years to build up this independent Garden Centre, from virtually nothing. Our local Council's planning department have restricted what we can and cannot sell, which is one reason why we do not sell pots and pans, nor clothes, nor shoes. We are not allowed concessions here either. We do however,... More

After a lovely holiday in the area, we had to leave our cottage really early, so had to find somewhere for a breakfast. Wow Country Lane was a complete gem, didn't expect such lovely food. 5 of us had a variety of different breakfasts which was just delicious. Unfortunately we didn't have cakes, but they looked delicious and definitely home... More
