After all the rave reviews, my husband and i were really looking forward to visiting this garden centre and eating in its award winning restaurant. I appreciate it was Easter and everywhere was busy, but to serve HOT food first, then wait for the l0-people in front to decide on tray bake, dessert, tea/coffee etc., by the time we were... More

Visited the restaurant on Good Friday. Was busy as usual. Ordered chicken and broccoli bake with mash and veg and a stew. Both were very tasty. However as with previous reviews it may be best if the tray bakes/desserts were served in a different area than the main meals. The chicken and broccoli bake was slightly cool by the time... More

A glorious selection of gifts for every occasion, presented very well. Lovely selection of well kept plants and all things garden. Topped off by lovely coffee/lunch/afternoon tea facility. Food is always of a high standard and staff are very professional and efficient.

In short - overcharged on a lot of my purchases followed by awful customer service, insinuated I switched the prices then ignored when I contacted them after. The full story - During a visit last week I purchased 17 items, I thought after paying it seemed a little more expensive than I was expecting so when I got to my... More

We as a group of girls called for coffee and scones they where beautiful As usual however the new additional of the kiddie play area is wonderful for keeping the wee ones occupied for those of us who have left ours at nursery or school etc it's not such a welcome addition.

A good morning get together or an afternoon coffee this is the place to be. The food is wholesome and the desserts are wonderful. Good size portions and the shop and garden centre is amazing to wonder round.

Visited here today with two of my chums. One who had not been before was pleasently surprised. We started with a walk round the gift shop, moved onto the clothes and children's toys, into the plants, the xmas sale items and then called into the onsite cafe for lunch. We did not have to queue long, prices were very reasonable... More
