“always busy, go early - home baking is a must!”

Gouldings Garden Centre
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Rosebank
Attraction details
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Best tip is to go early or there can be a queue for lunch - get there before 12! Popular with elderly / retired and families. Reasonable prices, very good food and pleasant service. Good lunch menu. Huge choice of home baking - highly recommended. The garden centre itself doesn't have a huge selection of plants like some others in the area but is well laid out and has enough choice. Shop has a good range of gifts, garden knick-knaks, kitchen and garden products and food items. Plenty of parking.

Gouldings is one of my most favourite places in the Clyde Valley. Tearoom is superb. So lovely to see a superb chill cabinet filled to the brim with delicious home bakes. It is so difficult to choose which cake to have. So do what I do and ask for a takeaway box and take some home for the family to enjoy. Great place to go for gifts and plants and everything you need for your garden. it's a must at Christmas time. The children will love all the festivities that happen here at Christmas. Just a shame I live in Aberdeen! To make the experience complete the staff are lovely and ever so friendly. Always get a smile at Gouldings! Keep up the good work folks.....LOVE IT!

Have just read an earlier reviewer about his complaint about the food. My wife and myself were at Gouldings today 19th Feb 3013 and found the food of a high quality. There steak pie is one of the best I have tasted. I know everybody has their own opinion and before the reviewer asks me, yes I do eat out a lot so I know what is good quality food. We have had lunch here many times and never had a bad meal yet and don't expect to in the future. As for the staff I have always found them to be very courteous and and very helpful ( it is nice to see staff with a smile on their faces). Their garden centre isn't very big but what they lack in size they more than make up for it in the excellent quality of their plants, flowers, shrubs and all garden accessories. This is where I go for all my plants and will be back for my plants again shortly. Excellent place to visit

i have to say donald,your review REEKS of jealousy!! you criticise veg when you know nothing about it,you criticise the girl at the counter for being "smiley" AND you criticise the many MANY customers for not getting around other places! would other places be maybe YOUR place.? The food in gouldings is excellent as the constant queues of people prepared to wait will testify. i think the fact you have the audacity to tell perfect strangers to "get out and about" is a testemnent that its YOU that needs to get a life. if your ONLY moan about Gouldings is about carrot, you must be mad. the smiley girl at the counter should get a bonus because the fact she was "smiley" despite havin to serve you means shes excellent at her job! Me,my family,friends and the THOUSANDS of satisfied customers will continue to visit this EXCELLENT esablishment. I dont think your dubious review will have the owners shakin in their shous just yet.
