A quick pop out for a local lunch was the remit; what a find! Living only 4 miles away for 7 years how and why had we not visited before?!
Service was fantastic, food fabulous, setting gorgeous and tranquil, purchase potential high in the shop but alas no time would allow today.
Never mind, return visit already planned!

Perfect autumnal lunch;
Sausage & mash x 2 - best ever!
Sticky toffee pudding
Amaretto crème brûlée

We spotted a roadside advert for this 'tearoom in a garden centre' and decided to take a look. My wife is a keen gardener, so nothing ventured, we could always just explore the garden centre if we didn't fancy the lunch menu. As it turned out the tearoom, as advertised, was in conservatory setting with plants, paintings and some excellent photographs. The menu was full of goodies and it didn't take us long to settle on the Fish Platter for Two - salmon, smoked trout, herring and a paté, with lovely ciabatta, butter and other accompaniments. Regretfully we had to pass on the excellent wine list (driving) and drank some excellent apple juice instead.
This is a gem of a place albeit a little out of the way.

This tearoom is truly unique as it has a tropical atmosphere and relaxed environment. The tables are set amongst orchids and monster rainforest plants. A small group of us went for lunch and we all chose different items from the menu. Each dish was delicious (home-made) and beautifully presented. Some of us had cakes to follow and again, these are made on the premises. The service was excellent and friendly despite being really busy. I'm not surprised as it is a great place to go to for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. We highly recommend it.

I always go to Newington Nurseries to buy orchids and decided to try the cafe today. We had coffee and cake, nice coffee and wonderful cake. I had carrot and walnut and my husband had a rich fruit cake both were delicious. They do a selection of food for breakfast lunch and tea. You can have wine or even champagne with your food if you wish.

We found it very relaxing and we could hear the birds singing outside when the sun came out. They have some tables in little nooks in among the orchids and as well as the main cafe area. Very pleasant young staff served us. I will certainly pop into the cafe again next time I am there.

We travel a reasonable distance to come to the Newington Nurseries simply because it's our place of choice to unwind in a beautiful atmosphere. Everyone's so helpful and welcoming there. We were so delighted when the Juicy Juicy Cafe opened. What a fabulous idea to sit and unwind eating a meal in a peaceful environment amongst the orchids. A little gem of a place. There's a lovely selection of food on the menu, a real treat, whether you want a snack or something cooked. We really enjoyed the Slate of Italian Cold Meats & English Cheeses & the Full English Breakfast had good quality sausage and bacon. I'm fussy when it comes to places to eat, but Juicy Juicy is a Cafe we'd return to without a doubt. Well done. We'll be making a trip back in the near future.
