We stopped as a group for a quick lunch. The outdoor seating area is very pleasant. Menu choices are good but not extensive. The food came quickly, was delicious and reasonably priced. Will visit again.

No.Guide dogs only into the nursery,gardens, shop and eateries. There is however a spacious car park where a dog could be exercised and given water if left in the car while the owner makes a visit.
