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.

Love visiting here but haven’t been for about 6 months. At first glance the cafe looks very inviting. Lovely cake display. Friendly staff. However the cleanliness behind the counter was awful. Coffee dregs, old teabags, dirty plates and cloths on a small grubby work surface....More

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?
