Well worth a trip to find plants & gardening stuff, as well as tempting craft, toys, home wares & boutique high end food stuffs too. You can have a meal or a snack with the family, including little ones in the restaurant too. I went with my little year old grandson & daughter to browse around. The aisles are comfortably wide enough for your average push-chair. It was clean & well laid out too. The pet section was a fascinating experience for my little grandson. We took him to the family friendly section of the restaurant, ostensibly to have tea & cake. However, the food was so reasonably priced & tempting that we treated ourselves to a cooked breakfast, with our little one safely seated in a clean high chair & something for him to munch & drink. The food was as delicious as it looked, & after our little Sonshine had finished his food he couldn’t wait to toddle over to the play area where other children were happily playing with the wooden train-set & watching the big flat screen TV with children’s programs for them to view, (incidentally there was also a comfortable sofa area for kids to sit & watch the TV should they wish to do so). As we left the Sunday lunches were being served. They too looked delicious & very reasonable priced, it was almost difficult to tear ourselves away, and the fact that we weren’t still hungry was our only deterrent. We promised to go back again to while away another morning or afternoon another time & take in more culinary temptations, this time taking our husband’s too. I would imagine that on a warm sunny day they would be even busier than they were on this bright winter’s Sunday morning. One other comment is that the coffee was great too, which is not always what you might otherwise expect in a garden centre restaurant.

Sadly lacking in atmosphere. The breakfasts are great value, but some of the cakes are not so fresh.

This is the 3rd time Granddaughter and myself have indulged in the "Afternoon Tea For Two" at £14.95. The Staff make it an occasion, nice table lay out, escorted to your table, tea is served, asked if you are happy with what you have and they return once to confirm all is well. The sandwiches which you pre-order (I have always received what I wanted) were delightful, the scones&cream &jam was all mouth-watering and the selection of cakes were scrummy all served with an excellent pot of tea, nice touch a pot of hot water as well. We sat in our own little world and over indulged for 90 minutes it was all delightful, not up to the standard of the Ritz, Harrods or the Savoy but it gives them a good run for it, and what a difference in price. Keep it up as we will be back and always we are singing the praises of the whole of this Garden Centre, well worth the visit. As we were leaving the staff were putting the finishing touches to the Christmas Layout, go and see it that is all I can say. Thank you.

We have noticed an improvement in this restaurant recently. We decided to use our 2 or £11 vouchers yesterday, having previously had a lovely jacket potato with Chilli con carne. There were only three dishes on the lunch menu, which seemed very limited. Everything looked good but when we started eating the meal was only lukewarm, dishes need to be put in a warm cabinet when not being used, the hotplate is not good enough. We did mention this when we left but no-one was interested. The baguettes, salads and cakes are all beautifully presented. The restaurant was clean and tidy and everything is cleared very quickly.

Think we will stick to the jacket potatoes and baguettes in future, but will also try the seasonal afternoon tea with our vouchers before Christmas.

this used to be an excellent place for breakfast. Before the restaurant was expanded and refitted it offered excellent quality value and service. Not anymore.
The staff faff around in a trance and breakfast is just awful!!
I avoid at all costs now.
