“disappointing for a long-term fave”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

we've been going to the Lifestyle Garden Centre and Silver Birch restaurant for years, particularly since we had a child. It's always been very busy but usually good food and good service despite that.
We went this last weekend and were very disappointed. My daughter's toasted sandwich was first an adult toasted chick & mayo (ordered kiddies toasted cheese) and then the right sandwich was awful - dry, thin slice of processed cheese - my poor child really didn't want to eat it at all. And for once she left her chips - obviously must have been awful!
My husband and I had salads - which were mostly iceberg lettuce which is a pet peeve of mine.
And the service was really shocking, and they weren't even THAT busy.
We'll go back, mainly because it's conveniently next to the play area, but we'll rather go somewhere else first!
