Went for lunch with friends at this little gem of a place. The restaurant serves lovely food in a warm and relaxed environment. The service was excellent. On top of that there is a lovely gift shop with beautiful and unusual pieces that you don't find on the high street. Perfect place to buy birthday or Mother's Day presents. Will... More

We visited here for breakfast and a look around the garden centre. The restaurant is in a large converted greenhouse but this is a very pleasant environment with statues and plants. The food was cooked fresh to order so there was a bit of a wait and this also wasn't cheap, at around £7 for a 2 item sandwich. However,... More

Came here too late for breakfast they finish taking orders by 11.15. Looked nice menu though and very busy. So waited till 12 and ordered the soup, very nice, hot rolls and lots of butter, not stingy. Lots of seating outside but a bit too cold in March. Lots of lunch choices and looked good when I saw plates going... More

Just before Christmas my family and I stopped by for lunch and once again we were not disappointed. I had the coronation chicken baguette with a side of chips and it was lovely, we all enjoyed our respective meal (my mum had duck wrap and sister had the open steak sandwich) which was topped off by great service and a...

We have had lunch here many times and we always have excellent food and good service. We discovered their jacket potatoes and now always look forward to having them again. They are delicious. They couldn't (or wouldn't) tell me the variety they use but I bought some in the shop and they are good cooked at home but not quite... More

Stopped for lunch, there were more people in the restaurant than garden centre. Special board for lunches and a great snack menu. Had a duck wrap that was fresh with spring onion, red pepper slices and hoisin sauce with gorgeous triple cooked chips. My partner went for the open steak and mushroom sandwich on sourdough. They make their own pizzas... More

As a family we are here at least twice a month as has become a firm favourite with us all, and the wider family, for breakfast/coffee or lunch. The breakfast is always great and Sunday lunch is outstanding. Suggest that you reserve a table as it is getting busier by the week. Had a brilliant Christmas Lunch which we had... More
