“Excellent afternoon tea”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

When the other half suggested a cup of coffee and a cake we landed at The Topiary Restaurant in the garden centre.
We saw the offer of afternoon tea at a very reasonable price so chose this.
Beautiful sandwiches with no shortage of filling and a very fresh salad dressing with a fresh scone and jam with an abundance of cream was followed with a freshly baked cake. All this washed down with either a pot of tea or a coffee.
Well worth a visit and you pocket will not suffer.

“Lovely cafe, nana and grandad loved it”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

The cafe was lovely, really nice wholesome food which was great value for money. I had a corvette and Parmesan soup which was lovely! My mum and nana has a sausage sandwich which was very tasty (and huge!) and my grandad thoroughly enjoyed his omelette. All good choices. Spent a good couple of hours going around the garden centre and there was some lovely things at great prices. I'm not an avid garden centre visitor but as they go, I quite enjoyed this one!

“No greasy spoons here”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

It's a cafe in a garden centre, but that said, it's probably better than your average cafe. It serves decent home-cooked specials and lighter snacks (prawns, smoked salmon, pork pie, scotch egg etc) with salads. And there's not a greasy spoon in sight.

“Everything you could ever want”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Staying nearby we went for a walk and came across this garden centre. It is less than a year old and has a wonderful cafe and spotlessly clean toilets.

The centre not only sells garden products, but has an array of household items and gifts. As usual with garden centres, I couldn't come away empty handed!
