Went for coffee and a tea cake and was told the kitchen is not open so cannot toast the teacakes... Didn't really want us in there and would prefer us to leave. This was 10. 00 in the morning.

Hi We're slightly confused about your review as we haven't sold teacakes for over 12 months - do let us know if you have any further information so we take it forward with our catering team.

We enjoyed the garden (and the shopping complex). The garden was a little bit expensive but on balance worth the visit. We were able to take advantage of the over 60's discount.

It is possible and most likely to drive past this area and have absolutely no idea that this small gem of a garden was there. Tucked behind the small outlet shopping centre is a beautiful RHS sister garden framed by an aqueduct which towers over...More
