“Could have spent all day here”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We weren't planning on visiting here, but we were drawn in as we passed by and as it turned out it was a lovely day.

There are plenty of buildings to shelter in if the weather is rubbish, lots of weird and wonderful plants around and the gardens on the whole are the perfect place to sit and relax. It was nice to escape to a tropical climate on an otherwise freezing day.

“Great venue”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Liked the atmosphere, the fact that we were sitting in a large greenhouse in the middle of winter. The menu wasnt extensive but enough and the staff were helpful and friendly.

“A Gardeners paradise!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

With all of the outside beds full of variation and surprises - including the odd inquisitive squirral, you will enjoy a walk through the gardens. The glass houses are an absolute 'must-see'!!!
