Nice spacious garden centre and tearoom with outdoor areas too. Cakes and coffee were great, but slightly pricey. Lots of parking and easy to find

Good menu and well presented. Staff are always really nice and the food is tasty. Can sometimes take a little while if busy, as they cook to order, but this is not an issue. Really nice cafe and great nursery too.

What a marvellous little oasis of plants, shrubs and trees. The cafe is an added bonus set in a most tranquil position.

The restaurant which is licensed is excellent, the food and service superb. Great view across the Nursery. All the food served here was above excellent.

The best fruit scone ever and husband liked the ham toasties, dog friendly and even the plants on sale were good value.

What can I say? I have shopped here at the adjoining plant nursery many times and never had the time to experience the cafe. Well I am certainly glad I did on this occasion. As ever every member of staff is attentive, polite and makes...More
