We didn't know what to expect when my Mother suggested we go to the garden center for lunch .We had passed Halls-The Garden Room , and it looked like a pub .It had been a pub and when entering the coffee house it was really interesting with high ceilings and interesting things for sale and a cake cabinet which everyone on entering swooned over .
With the tea served in bone china cups and saucers and good filter coffee , many people called in for tea and cakes .We had a refreshing lunch of Scampi , chunky chips , tartar sauce , side salad and peas .It was served quickly , tasted fresh and well presented , maybe a little expensive at £7.50 I would rather have paid around £6 , but that would not stop me returning .The Bakewell tart was the best we had ever tasted .
With some nice homemade produce for sale and simple things like China mugs and garden furniture for sale as well of course the Garden Center .

I have driven past this place lots of times and today I decided to treat myself and a friend to lunch. Well what a delightful pleasure...... we had the smoked salmon sandwiches served with a dressed salad and lovely crisps. The food was very well presented, the waitress was really friendly and although it was a busy lunchtime we were served very promptly. The whole decor is clean modern and with comfy chairs! After lunch we wandered around looking at the little bits and peices on sale including gorgeous chocolates and lovely birthday cards. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours here and we will definately be back. Excellent value for money too.

Visited with my son. Poor service, 25 mins wait for coffee, staff had no food knowledge, always worrying when people don't know what is in the food they are serving to you, and generally idsorganised. Was it just a bad day? Maybe, but I doubt it!

i went with some colleagues of mine from work and was most impressed with the decor of this coffee shop, bright, decorative and tastefully decorated sets this shop apart from Costas, Starbucks and even Druckers. It has a special uniqueness with an extensive range of home made cakes and Belgian chocolates on display. The lunch menue has a good selection of light lunches from local suppliers and lunch was served efficiently food was delious recommend the tuna and cheese panini with a nice side salad with chunky jenga chips. Tea is served with nice bone china cups and latte is not bad either. A very nice and busy atmosphere makes this coffee shop unique from the rest!

Recently visited this coffee shop whilst visiting Halls Garden Centre next door. Utilising an old pub building this delightful coffee shop is tastefully decorated and has a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The quality of the food and drinks on offer are what sets it apart from other coffee shops I've visited. An extensive choice of hot and cold drinks as well as alcohol is available. The home made cake selection is very tempting but I went for a light lunch selection of a very tasty chicken and bacon baguette accompanied by some of the best home made chips I've ever tasted. Service was polite, swift and efficient and as a big bonus you could park right outside the door! Highly recommended!
