Hi Julie, Our Charcoal Cheddar seems to be a particular favourite with many of our customers, as you say a jet black, yet delicious cheese is a bit of a novelty! We're glad you enjoyed your visit and thank you for the kind review!

Hello to the Manager and Staff in your Restaurant This is just to say that on Friday of this week we had a drive out from the Hope Valley and visited you Garden Centre and Restaurant. We were impressed with the on-going work to enlarge the site. Myself and my husband decided to have lunch while we were there and had a lovely cooked lunch of Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce, new potatoes, and vegetables. Afterwards we finished looking around your Garden Centre and then came straight home. Around three hours later both my husband and I got food poisoning. We very both quite ill for around an hour with diarrhea, (the runs), and stomach ache. As this was the only meal we had had that day it points to your lunch. We can only think it was the Hollandaise Sauce. We are just notifying you of this in case anyone else tells you the same. It will not put us off lunching with you again in the near future. We would appreciate you coments. Pearl and Barry Edwards.
