“Homemade tastiness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you are looking for a full meal or just a light sandwich, it is all very tasty! A really nice selection of cakes and biscuits. A lovely view whether you are sat on the veranda, or in the little cafe itself. You may have to help the staff a little by clearing yourself a table when it's busy but it's such a lovely atmosphere that you don't mind too much. especially as you can see where all the staff are at amy one time and can see how hard they all work!

“Good for light bites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lovely cafe situated inside the garden centre. Good for coffee and light lunches. Can sometimes be a little untidy if they are busy as tables do sometimes take a while to get cleaned.

“not a secret any more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

went on a sunny afternoon for lunch the restaurant was very busy and you had to wait for a empty table. the menu was vast but they had run out of two of the meals we had ordered. The staff were friendly but busy the food was nicely presented and worth the money, but I recommend either going early 12pm or after 2pm to be sure of a table.

“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Simple and well-cooked food in the setting of a small garden centre. A great place to chill out on a summer afternoon, with amazing views of the Usk Valley.
