Great garden centre, with stacks to choose from. Slightly disappointing breakfast, as my poached eggs were solid, and puzzlingly tasted of vinegar. My husband loved his " full English ", though !

We always visit when on holiday. There is so much choice! Plants are always lovely. The shop is varied and prices are good. The clothes department has some good offers too. The restaurant has a wide and varied choice of hot and cold meals and the cakes are lovely. Well worth a visit.

This was my second visit. Well laid out and clearly organised and labelled. My dog was not objected to and seemed to enjoy even the indoor areas. Plants were well cared for. Prices seem to have rocketed Brexit?

Visited on a very rainy day. Had lunch here, roast duck and trimmings. Very good and value for money. Would recommend a trip here if you are in the area - it is a popular spot and gets busy - lots of car parking spaces.

Called in on Wednesday night for the late opening offer of 2 steaks for £19 which was a very fine meal indeed. The service was very attentive and prompt,the food was excellent and cooked exactly to our requirements, and we found it, therefore, very good value- for -money. To add to this overall very pleasant experience the restaurant manageress came... More

Our family have been frequent visitors to the garden centre and restaurant for many years. We invariably finish our trip with coffee and scones in the restaurant. During the past two years, we have felt that the quality of the scones has not been as good. Today, however, we were more disappointed than ever. Our first impression was that the... More

Very busy restaurant so some people must be happy but found it very institutionalised menu. If you do not eat cheese then menu is extremely limited. I chose cold meat - half a sliced tasteless sausage - would a smoke sausage not have been better? Ham excellent, not sure if it was a small slice of turkey or chicken -... More

Lovely shop full of useful and interesting things. Nice day out, particularly on a wet day. The garden centre has lots of nice quality shrubs and plants and they have a very good Advice Counter to answer questions. Restaurant was good and they have a good queuing system which works well.

Came here on a Sunday for a young family meet. The restraint was pack but we were served in good time. Cost is a little steep for my liking for a garden centre cafe but I do think the price you pay is worth it. Food was nicer than I'd expected for a garden centre cafe and the quantity was... More
