Fabulous brunch with friendly service and delicious food. The Hothouse Eatery was such a lovely setting and great to explore the shops and garden after. Staff were extremely helpful and no problem with a baby and a toddler. Will definitely be coming back here.

It is quite an interesting place for an afternoon tea with friends after looking around the small shopping area in the centre. Lunch is very average but reasonable price so I guess it would suits some people with limited budget?

Perhaps it was my misunderstanding but I had expected to see a lot more in the way of beds and plants to learn about. Its a beautifully tranquil place, with some lovely little shops to browse in. We didn't visit the tea rooms and the...More
