“Excellent food and customer service”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Me and a friend were over for the weekend to watch the racing at croft when we stumbled upon this lovely place. The nursery and water gardens were well maintained and a real treat to wander around. Whilst we weren't biking it looked very well equipped to cater for them. We had breakfast in the tea rooms before we went which was exceptionally nice and kept us going for our day at croft. We will definitely be re-visiting every time we are in the area and would recommend to anyone.

“Excellent pond plants”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Lost our koi carp to the local heron so decided on a wild life pond with more plants. Paddock Farm was recommended. Great choice of good value water lilies and oxygenators. Helpful staff who sorted out my order. Will return.

“Great Tearooms !”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Not as many plants/shrubs in the nursery as there once was, but what is there is good quality.

Visited the cafe for a cup of tea, but stayed for soup & scampi.
Great food & service 'with a smile'.

“Excellent Place!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I visited for the first time in December for their annual Christmas Festival. The staff were beyond friendly and welcoming. They ensured everyone was warm and dressed up in festive outfits to make the day extra Christmassy! We used the cafe facilities and the food was gorgeous and a great price. Highly recommended!
