Went for lunch last Sunday. It was very busy but plenty of staff and not much of a wait. I had a cheese and ham toastie and my husband had a brie and bacon panini. Salad could have been a bit more generous and needed a bit of dressing but otherwise very tasty.

The quality of food at the restaurant at far end of the garden centre is appalling! Stale bread, mean filling, limp leaves, coffee strong enough to wake the dead, gravy so thick and gelatinous that it could be used for waterproofing canvas shoes and an air of "we couldn't care less" from most (not all) the staff. The prices are extortionate - croissant £2.49! I shall not go again, ever.

My parents and i visited here 24th April. I was very disappointed in the whole place.
I was after some garden solar lights and found there was very little choice,and were quite expensive. £8 for two skinny looking apologies! Some of the plants could have done with a watering!! The 'discounted' bay was full of stuff left over from Christmas that no body wanted.
and still didn't. We went for a cuppa and found that the cafe was not well organised,designed or replenished. 3members of staff were up ladders behind the food counter which i thought was very inappropriate. My mother asked for some scones and they wern't in a hurry to bring them out. So, 2 x cappucinos 1 x tea 3 pathetic fruit scones (with the fruit thrown in from the A1) came to £12!!!!! A chocolate crispie was the steal of the day at a whopping £1.29 and it contained a teaspoon size portion!
The day ended slightly better with a visit to the fruit and veg shop outside. Lovely produce and reasonably priced. 2 x large planets of strawbs £4 ,delish !
Not revisiting in a hurry.

Met a friend here for coffee. Had a vastly overpriced stale cheese savoury sandwich with a pitiful looking garnish of a few lettuce leaves containing a fly and a cherry tomato halved. Will not return. Ever

Been here loads over the years but this last few months, the quality of food and drink and the service from case/restaurant staff is rather basic - We ordered coffee and cake - we sat with cake in front of us and its took the best part of 20 minutes for our coffee to arrive. lots of staff but not much service.

I happen to think it is expensive - nearly 20 pound for 4 items and the cakes would have been bought form asda for a couple of pound!

The butcher and the fruit shop are the best part of this place.
