Seems like every garden centre in the UK now does food. Since they extended the tea rooms, it's a lot easier to get a table and it's nice to have the option on a sunny day to sit outside. Food's average really. Pleasant enough home made cakes but nothing outstanding. Service is friendly and quite quick.

Morleys is a really good garden centre for indoor and outdoor plants and furniture, water features etc. The café serves good coffee and lovely fresh cakes

I can't fault this cafe for the people or the drinks, however as someone with a nut allergy the cakes need to be labelled as I ordered an apple crumble cake and only found out after I had eaten some of it and asked that it contained nuts. As someone that works in a food environment, this could have been... More

Bring my elderly mum here for Sunday Breakfast as a treat - she loves it. Really good bacon sandwiches and possibly the best cheese on toast you can get at a cafe - always bubbling and nicely browned - delicious. Service is always prompt and friendly and the cakes always look really good - will have some one day to... More

I'm a frequent user of Morley's tea room. Why? Because everything is excellent, the home cooked food, the quality, the service all at a reasonable price. And long may it continue.

It is lovely here, however I do think it is a bit overpriced. I will be going back though. Think it's a great idea to have the tea room situated within the nursery grounds as once you've finished buying all your plants etc it's nice for a little stop off 😊

I have eaten at Morleys on many occasions. It offers good value for money & the food is very good. The staff are friendly & the service is excellent. I would recommend Morleys to everyone. It caters for all age groups & welcomes children.

A friend came with me on 07/08 for breakfast and we sat in the tea room gardens. The relaxing atmosphere coupled with such an abundance of beautiful flower arrangements and piping hot, good quality food which was reasonably priced made for an excellent start to our day. All cakes and pastries are home made and to a very high standard.... More

Popped in here for tea and toast with my daughter, quick service and polite staff.There is an indoor and outdoor seating area. It gets quite busy but has a nice atmosphere. It is located at the back of the garden centre area, which is down the country roads in Wakering.

Thank Amanda S
