“Roses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Always go to David Austin for my roses, they have a great choice and if you look after them they last for years. They are good quality roses. They do have lots of other plants but I do love going there for my roses. The café is very good and would recommend a visit. It is all on the flat so if you are elderly or disabled then this would be a good place for a few hours out of the day to visit

“Very enjoyable afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We had vouchers for afternoon tea and were extremely pleased with both the service and quality of food. Although the afternoon teas are from 3.15 , we were served a little before this with no trouble at all. There was plenty to eat and had to ask for our cakes to be wrapped to them home to eat. A pleasant way to spend a winter's afternoon.

“Go in June for the Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

The rose garden at David Austin is one of the best free places you can visit, especially in the summer months. There is much to see and it is very tranquil and beautiful with seats in various places where you can while away time and breathe in the wonderful perfumes of the fabulous roses. The shop and restaurant are both excellent and I defy you to come away without a rose for your own garden. I am fortunate to live quite close and visit many times each year.

“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Lovely shop to browse, incredible gardens to wander round & a lovely cafe/restaurant with very polite staff and a wonderful array of cakes for afternoon tea.
The table was laid with rose petals & very pretty china & when we couldn't finish the food, they boxed it up for us to take home - a lovely experience
