Don't be put off by the 'garden centre' name. This venue is just fantastic for coffee lunch or afternoon tea. Loads regulars plus drop in's and visitor's come for the fresh delicious food prepared on site, and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. It is hard to decide what to eat, and everything is a reasonable price. Not often do you get ice in a bucket by the water for customer use. Light airy and comfortable with restful layout. Just off A19 / A168 junction/roundabout at Thirsk, makes it very suitable for 'motorway' travel break too. You won't be disappointed. ( No, I don't have any connection with this business)

Ample free car park just out of town.
Lovely area to stroll round plants for sale.
Large café with outside seating - very popular because food is very good.

in a lovely setting with friendly local staff to serve you, what could be better than this when you are either calling in for garden stuff or bird food, or even just passing by? Fresh baked huge scones, decent coffee, homemade food - the place was packed by lunchtime on the day we went, which is testament in itself. There is lots of space though, and even if its raining outside you can almost pretend you are eating or drinking al fresco - great!

We often visit Thirsk Garden Centre - less for our gardening needs and increasingly for our need to feed! The setting is great with indoor and outdoor seating, spacious yet private, welcoming yet intimate. The food is all home cooked and we have yet to try something we wouldn't willingly choose again. Whether it's coffee and cakes, a quick sandwich or panini or a selections from the specials board. It's on our list to try the Sunday Lunch there!

Whether it's garden feeds - or family feeds - visit and try for yourself

Fantastic place to go for just a quick cuppa or a leisurely lunch! Is fantastic. Would recommend as well priced, clean, tidy and the staff are always efficient.
