Description: This may sound surprising, but we have visitors who come to Bretby just for our food! Our restaurant manager Chris Rich-Bate has some delicious, mouth-watering new recipes all freshly prepared from local British produce and of course our staff are always on hand to offer outstanding service. Food for thought... From humble beginnings, the restaurant has continued to expand and we can now accommodate up to 200 customers - and plans are afoot to improve the layout even further. Chris and his team are proud of their reputation which is spreading beyond the local area and it is obvious to everybody that they all enjoy preparing food which is freshly made using on the finest of local ingredients. We change our menu every week and of course, if you have any suggestions for forthcoming menu ideas we are always delighted to receive them. Our restaurant also offers a delicious selection of snacks and refreshments.

The Management repays loyalty to its over 60's patrons with a free buffet and entertainment in its restaurant.
A soft drink or a choice of red or white wine on arrival, together with a free raffle ticket, bingo sheet and gardening competition sheet. The free buffet was freshly home produced fare, ranging from sandwiches, Indian and Chinese snacks, the usual pork pies and sausage rolls, cobs, cakes and mince pies. The Owner of the garden center mingled and socialized with the guests exceeding over a 100, Julie Shaw the manager of the restaurant organised the event with her usual efficiency, the staff friendly and cheerful. Following the food an organist provided some music and the raffle, garden quiz and stand-up bingo winners were rewarded with quality prizes. At the closure of the event the guests were invited to take the remaining food home in provided tin foil. Loyalty certainly pays sometimes, well done.

Went to the centre for christmas dinner instead of the local carvery which costs £3.89. Big mistake it cost nearly £25 for a dinner, pudding and a coffee for two, what a rip off it looked like something you would get at the local supermarket cafe, roast potatoes were just coloured hard things the turkey was that dry it made me gag the gravey was like water the veg was mass produced tasteless dross all in all it was very poor for the £9.99 cost for two courses and nearly a fiver for two coffees in wormans mugs. The christmas pud was quite nice. Don't know what the rest of the menu's like but avoid the christmas dinner at all costs. Service was slow aswell has to ask two seperate waiters before the sweet was served.

As garden centres go, this is where you buy your seeds and plants, you don't just look and decide things are too expensive!
