So we decided to stop off here for some lunch... Not quite what we were expecting. Slow service and not a lot of choice.. We both went for a bacon, Brie and cranberry panini which was ok but served with a salad which quite frankly wasn't fit to eat. Over all I think more pleasant staff and more swift service... More

My family and I have been here a number of times (as there is something to suit everyone) but our most recent was earlier this week. The service is polite and friendly and alternatives are accommodated wherever possible. I had the crab cakes which were really nice. They were served with salad and new potatoes and were very reasonably priced... More

The staff are really friendly and the food was good and Great value for money. The crab cakes were particularly good. A lovely place to go for morning coffee, lunch or Afternoon tea and lots to look at in the garden centre and shop.

We often eat here on a Sunday as it is not necessary to book ahead. The food is excellent and also the service. It is good value for money.

My friend wanted to have a look around the garden centre, and had previously raved about the food served in their 'restaurant', thus we stopped for lunch. It is a self service, and this can be a slow process waiting to get to the till and pay. All the food on offer looked most appetizing, was well presented and home... More

Fabulous food and a very welcoming atmosphere. Not an issue to make a kids size plain cheese sandwich with cucumber and carrot on the side even when not offered on the menu which was a welcome relief when you have a hungry but slightly picky 6 year old. Lots of choice and variety and plenty of staff so wait time... More

I went to the restaurant at the garden centre today with family and friends, specifically for a cream tea. The scones seemed to be bigger than ever. Some ate them the Cornish way of jam first and then cream, some the Devon way of cream first and then jam. Either way they were delicious and enjoyed by everyone. A pot... More
