Went here with family recently while on holiday. The decor was very cute with a theme of Alice in Wonderland. Nice artwork on the walls and a pleasant atmosphere. Hardwood chairs a bit hard to sit on for extended periods, sore bums will result. Food was good. I had the giant Yorkshire filled with sausages, mash and veg. The mash... More

Thought I would visit as you'd been recommended but will not be coming back and would not advise any of my friends and family to either. I was asked what I wanted when I entered the restaurant in a very unfriendly manner and when I said I would like some lunch was told that "we only have carvery." We were... More

Been here several times including for the Sunday carvery. Beautiful garden area to enjoy a glass of wine and homemade scones. Food is very good, great menu, extensive bar options which is great for a garden centre, good service and very accommodating. We really do love this place and look forward to popping in again on another sunny day for... More

The carvery we had was nice enough and there were staff a plenty but be warned if you want help in the shop as its hard to find anyone, are they all hiding I wonder? Felt sorry for the lady working outside who seemed to be rushing around on her own... More

Once again another excellent carvery, the gammon was sublime and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. All the staff are always welcoming and the atmosphere great.

Visited this small Garden Centre primarily for a family lunch get-together. Good menu, food and service and the restaurant was licensed. Be warned though that you need to wear warm clothing because the whole building was very cold. After our meal we escaped to the greenhouses (where staff were busily potting up seedlings) to warm up a little. We hurried... More

We often think about this restaurant as our home from home a beautiful atmosphere, great staff that consider you more as a friend than a customer. The food is always great fresh and nothing is to much trouble. Thank you everyone.

This is the second visit to this restaurant, excellent food and the staff are very helpful. It is situated in a garden centre so once you have finished your meal there is a splendid shop to browse around.

We thought we'd give the Harriers a try as we have heard good reports from friends. We weren't disappointed. The food was good and service in the restaurant was very friendly and efficient as was the service in the garden centre. We will be back for a cream tea in the spring.

Thank David S
