“Gardening Heaven”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This was the UK's first gardening centre. It really has everything and prices are competitive, but not anything special.

The Christmas displays are worth seeing each year and the plants are good quality. Nice restaurant too. Good for disabled, clean toilets.

Thoroughly recommend.

“More than just a cafe!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stewarts is a 7 generation owned family business where service is still king whether it is in the cafe or the extensive Garden Centre (which was the first Garden Centre to be opened in the UK!)
The present owner, Martin Stewart, can often be seen within the garden centre and cafe "mucking in" and giving a lead to his 200 strong staff.
From a purely business perspective this has got to be one of the best in the country where every member of staff and customer is made to feel special. Here's to the next generation of Stewarts!
