Lovely restaurant. Food very good. Made to order. Freshly baked Pizzas made to order. Cakes to die for. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend. Also space for Wheelchair users.

Called in for lunch when visiting the garden centre during a weekend on the Isle of Wight. All our party found the food to be tasty, well presented, generously portioned and reasonable value. The service was polite and efficient. Can easily recommend a visit.
