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

Called in for a coffee to break up a long journey. Stopped for a coffee and cafe initially the young girl who served us was lovely, however we felt the constant, very loud chastising of the staff was unnecessary and tainted our experience. Such a shame as the coffee and walnut cake was certainly worth a second visit but sadly... More

As the owner of this business I am horrified to read this review. I'm not sure who you mean by "Cafe Manager" as we do not have anyone with such a title. The staff in the restaurant are an excellent team and there is frequently loud and sarcastic banter amongst them, and when busy some direction is required. Perhaps you... More

We pulled off the A30 towards Okehampton and located this very nice Garden Centre. They had a very nice cafeteria and we had a hot drink and a very nicely done snack. The staff were very welcoming and our order was delivered to our table. We enjoyed our visit very much.

This little garden centre is only a couple of meeting off the A30 and is a great place to stop for a break if you're travelling any distance down the A30. There is a great selection of homemade cakes and food - including a nice choice of vegetarian hot meals (I had the butternut squash and spinach lasagne, which was... More
