Enjoyed a full English, and poached eggs on toast. I don't like the current fad of putting vinegar in the poaching water, it can be tasted in the eggs. Please put additional toast in the rack, and only one slice with the 2 small poached eggs on a large plate looks underwhelming. Nice service.

Very average service ( if you include having to serve yourself while staff are standing around its worse ) and lukewarm offering . Garden centre is excellent but will avoid cafe if I go again

I'd booked afternoon tea for 5 people and went ahead of time to purchase a gift card to cover the cost. When we arrived we were pointed in the direction of our table without being escorted. I found this strange. We then had quite a wait to be served and get our drinks. When the afternoon teas arrived they were... More

This centre has pretty well everything, is well laid and spacious with great quality food offer. Even though it is a garden centre it is an exciting place to visit.We stopped for breakfast and did not leave until after lunch.

I was interested to read an earlier comment with regard to the absence of Paninis. I also ordered a panini with local blue cheese and mushrooms but the panini was missing. No apology, no reason for the bread roll replacement. As the previous writer reported no refund of alert of no paninis when ordering. Very disappointing.

The title says it all really. Overpriced food and drinks that are simply not worth the money. Would do the garden centre and go elsewhere for food.
