Our Café


In 2014, our Café was rated as one of the top 25 garden centre cafes in the country, as featured in a Daily Telegraph survey. Since then, rather than resting on our laurels we have made major changes, adding an extension to increase the number of seats. Customers love this new space with its oak frame, stylish furniture and large windows which frame the view out over the Garden Centre and the city beyond. 

We are a friendly Café, serving a wide range of scrumptious snacks and cakes, as well as a weekly changing specials menu for a tasty seasonal lunch.

As well as delicious homemade cakes, organic and fair trade coffees, teas and fruit juices, our Café serves a range of freshly prepared hot and cold dishes – including seasonal salads, soups, stews and sandwiches.

Our lovely, welcoming staff will make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive… you might find Pat our manager whipping up a delicious homemade cake in the kitchen or Abby and Steve our Assistant Managers cooking up a warming soup for lunch.

We are a proudly ethical company and aim to source our produce from as close to home as possible, as well as ensuring that our hot and cold drinks are fair-trade. Our great selection of cold drinks, speciality teas and wonderful Brian Wogan coffee (which is roasted just a couple of miles away) can be made to take-away or sit in.

Whether your need a quiet haven in a busy city or a place to meet up for a good catch up, pop in to see us! Don’t forget we have a play area for children and plenty of outdoor seating for when the sun shines.

A range of teas, coffees, juices and cakes are served all day...

Monday - Friday: 9.30am - 4.30pm Saturday: 9.30am - 4.30pm Sunday: 10.30am - 4.00pm rough edge rough edge
