“Great food, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The restaurant at Coed y Dinas is fab for lunch or even a quick coffee and cake. The staff there are lovely, very helpful and friendly. My only complaint would be that as we visited on bank holiday Monday, it was super busy and took forever to get served. I think on busy days they might be better just taking orders and payments at the counter and bringing food to the table rather than trying to dish up on the spot.

“good for a coffee”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We were visiting wales and were taken to coed y dinas for a look and some lunch. Coffee was good but served by a short tempered lady who seemed to have lost the ability to smile. My nephew went into the play area which was FILTHY. A child had clearly had an accident in there and when we informed saff, we felt as though we had done something wrong! Food was nothing special. Such a shame. It could be so much better.

“Coed Y Dinas - Welshpool - Great!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Just the place you need to visit after wandering round the garden centre and all other attractions of Coed Y Dinas. We are so lucky that this is almost on our doorstep (well, 8 miles but to us that is local) The food and drink is lovely and not overpriced as in some of these new garden centres.
The staff are also friendly and very helpful. It is always clean and bright and makes you want to stay for longer since you dont feel rushed at all.

“Lovely”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Had a coffee with my grandad after walking around the store and looking at the plants. Was a nice relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for an afternoon coffee.
