“Very good food in an a rural garden centre...”

Palmers at Ullesthorpe, Cafe
Price range: $3 - $13
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 26, 2014

In recent years, Palmers Garden Centre of Enderby has taken over and run what was a successful garden centre in a small village just outside Lutterworth. Fortunately, it has been enlarged very successfully and in the alterations was born a lovely and popular café that has become a destination in its own right. My wife and I have been very many times - especially since it eclipses the headquarters café in ambience. It is an ‘L’ shaped café with a conservatory area but our favourite spot is near the cosy log stove which has pride of place in the centre of the main room. There is a good selection of meals for lunchtimes although the photos below only show part of the story. Their website states that their food “ is made from home made recipes using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients”. When tasting the food it is difficult to argue. I had a soup and sandwich combo. The soup was parsnip [beware as it is always piping hot!] and it was deliciously flavoured very lightly with curry. The sandwiches were cheese and pickle and were freshly made with very thick layer of grated cheese. I do wish that they’d been quartered though. It would just present the plate better. My wife went with the ham and tomato toasties. Generous portions again and with a large and varied salad. With a proper pot of excellent tea for two, this proved to be an ideal lunch before we toured the garden centre and came away with many post-Christmas bargains. We have experienced their afternoon teas and cakes in the past so we can attest to this being a good destination whatever the time of day. Recommended!
