This is very local for me, and I've been coming here since it was just a garden centre with a shed!

It is now professional in all they do; delightful gardens, wonderful gifts and a very good cafe.
For a special occasion, you must book in for afternoon tea. It is a real experience.
I've watched this grow over many years, but it has never disappointed!

Love going her for a browse amongst the beautiful roses (and to think - its free entry!) The place is amazing and the peacocks are amazing just roaming around! Lovely roses: never come away empty handed!

Had afternoon tea which was lovely and the roses stunning. Lovely setting and a great shop. However, we have been on several other occasions where the service has been consistently bad with the food arriving after several requests for it although we did notice if you were a regular or male you seemed to be served a lot quicker saying tat the food is very good but not is your in a hurry or hungry.

All I can say is that my other half and I came away from our unplanned visit here (we ignored our Sat. Nav and took a wrong turn) with a new appreciation of the beauty of Old English Roses developed here. It restored my love of roses and we have come home with a desire to have some of these magnificent, perfumed gems in our fledgling garden.
I can't comment on the cafe or the gift shop as such, but I did notice that some customers in the gift shop seemed to be waiting a very long time to be served. The tea room/cafe was doing a brisk trade, so I guess the food was not too bad.
If you are in the Wolverhampton area and love roses then do visit.
