We have been here several times before but just for a snack and drink: this was the first time we have had a cooked lunch and we were pleasantly surprised. the food was tasty, hot with plenty of vegetables: the service was excellent with friendly and professional serving staff. We will definitely return and very soon. It was a good job I booked though because it was very popular.

The staff are always very helpful and accommodating. Food is great and not too expensive for a garden centre tearoom.
