I met a friend for a coffee and catch up and ended up staying all day. Lots of lovely gifts, clothes, shoes, accessories and gardening stuff to choose from. Gift wrapping service is an added bonus. Large restaurant that sells everything from hot and cold drinks to snacks and meals. Easy access for wheelchairs, buggies etc.

The surroundings of this restaurant are very light and airy, the range of food available is quite extensive and the service is good. What lets it down is the quality of the food which could be improved both in the way it is presented and the taste. We found it okay for a quick snack, but it is not a... More

I have always enjoyed my visits to the restaurant but yesterday's visit has put me off. The staff serving hot food all looked so annoyed, and they barely restrained their mood to serve the many of us that were waiting. It seemed a combination of some very slow servers and a lack of staff. I ordered two jackets which they... More

Yes, we were early at 11am but this was to our advantage. Lots of freshly prepared afternoon teas and at only £16 for two, fantastic value. Lots of tea and coffee refills to ensure a constant supply of hot drinks to accompany freshly made finger sandwiches, scones and fancies. Plenty of staff to hand. Our experience was great, however when... More

It's the funniest thing I have ever seen,, the rudest assistant ever, because the counter is curved - she is so insistant- that customers tell them the item rather than make the effort to bend over and look at what they required, as apparently she cannot see ! Time and again she could not put the effort in - shame... More

3 toasted sandwiches, 1 bowl of chips, 1 coffee, 1 coke. Nearly £25 !!!!! It is not the best either - I haven't tried any of the hot meals as they are also expensive. There used to be a great atmosphere with lots of stuff from the garden centre dotted about to give you ideas but now there is nothing... More

We recently paid a visit to the garden centre and were very impressed by the large range of products and garden ideas. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and on hand for advice, particularly in the horticulture department, you can tell the plants are looked after with care. Everything in the garden centre and shopping areas are well spaced out,... More

We waited an hour from seating to eating for food. As we had a package with the hotel next door we were stuck with the establishment for 3 days. To be fair breakfast was a wide variety and acceptable. Dinner however was so bad we sent it back on two occasions. The food was delivered cold, not cool, cole! I... More
