Yes, we welcome well behaved dogs everywhere apart from inside the Coffee Shop (although there is outdoor seating where they are welcome) and near our reindeer (we don't want either animal getting too excited!)

Description
Stewarts are a family-owned chain of three Garden Centres, one in Christchurch, one in Broomhill, near Wimborne and on in Titchfield, near Fareham. All have excellent Coffee Shops with 5 star ratings from the Food Standards Agency. At Stewarts Christchurch and Broomhill are open late on Thursday nights, when we have local musicians entertaining with live music. Our coffee shops close 1 hour before the Garden Centre closes. Please see our website for more details.
