Been here several times, the best time to go is right now (November) the choice of Christmas gifts is overwhelming and the staff are so helpful - we love it.

A lovely place which I've seen develop over many years. A really lovely coffee shop ideal for coffee and cake or a light lunch. Lovely gifts and obviously herbs, roses and plant related purchases. Just outside Sonning Common. Easy parking and good service in the shop/plant area and also the coffee shop

I have been visiting the Herb Farm for several years. It is a great place not only to buy herb plants for the garden, it has a great coffee shop which does lovely cakes and afternoon teas and has a lovely shop which has started to gear up for Christmas already.

If you are in the area call in and see them the welcome is always friendly and you may find some great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc.

I love the place, it has a great array of plants and artisanal gods for sale and a small cafe with competent and friendly staff. The only potential gripe is with the loos/toilets/wcs (whatever you call them) they are down the garden in a bit of a hut - not so enticing if it is cold and rainy. If you are going past don't let this put you off, it is really charming and worth a visit. Hopefully when you go they will have sorrel back in stock :)

A good place to pick up different varieties of common herbs, and some not so common. Open all year, but more well stocked in the growing season. Has a Small Tearoom that does food.
