It is probably fair to say my main interest in Barton Grange is the café. They have a huge selection of outdoor furniture and equipment and quality of products seems very high. Cakes and ice cream are lovely. Try the vanilla slices (not my usual choice as I usually go for chocolate) but believe me they are a different level in taste and portion size. Coffee machine is a disappointing self service machine and quality is average. Prices are probably 15 to 20% higher than similar places - which is worth it for some things but not others. Shop staff are very helpful.

Stunning centre. Fabulous displays and massive choice. But this is definitely a place for the well-heeled, it's very expensive!

We stopped here for a coffee and to look at some plants. The first thing that struck me was the incredible size of the place - much like the Tardis! Everywhere was accessible to people in wheelchairs and those who find it difficult to walk far --there were chairs and buggies available.
The scones were really very good! We discovered that there was the Willows Restaurant there which was very spacious. We arrived in the late afternoon so the Willows had just closed. But from a look at the menu and the restaurant itself we will certainly visit there for lunch in the future! the part of the large building that we had our coffees in was massive; I did not count but I imagine it could take at least 50 people. I can recommend this garden centre to anyone who wants to buy plants as well as have a snack or a more substantial lunch!

This is a comprehensive garden centre, very clean with good quality plants and wide range of accessories. Cafe is well above average for similar garden centres. A good range of hot food and freshly made sandwiches, (about £4.75) lovely looking cakes and scones and an ice cream bar. Biggest surprise, a big mug of coffee for £2! Not the Costa/Starbucks prices. Lovely view over the stream with declining flood in the sunshine. We are fairly frequent callers here and there are often functions on for the kids, the Christmas display is fantastic.
