As a former professional musician I was delighted to learn that Stewart's are promoting music and dinner nights at Christchurch and Wimbourne. We went to Christchurch and enjoyed a great dinner while being entertained by a really good pianist who played a selection of tunes which most could relate to. Very often musicians, vocalists and bands find the initial gig... More

Not the first time we have eaten here. Food is straightforward but good although the person I was with enjoyed the fish but was not over impressed with the chips. I had mushroom and spring onion quiche that was very good.

Had roast turkey. Decent portions and did the job. Plenty of staff on duty so served quickly. One of my favourite garden centres.

Stewarts restaurant is very popular. The variety of cakes and scones etc is many and varied.Hot meals are also quite varied. Prices reasonable but the portions of cakes and scones are huge! Service is a bit sporadic. Had a poor experience of the roast meal some time ago but visit regularly for coffee and the occasional cake, shared between two!

Visited the coffee shop and the selection of cakes was phenomenal. Could definitely recommend the homemade scones both sweet and savoury were enjoyed by... More

Always good to go and have a coffee or lunch the only disappointing thing is if you have a dog you have to stay outsid that's fine but there are no heaters and you have to leave you dog alone while you order I don't like leaving my dog unattended as someone could steal her so it's very difficult to...

There is a huge choice of food and loads of space but always busy. It is collect from the serving area style then go to get the drinks at the end but all works quickly and they have a Loyalty card. Excellent food from breakfast to afternoon tea, with a good range of cooked lunches and sandwiches. The afternoon tea... More

Dear Forest Fairy, Thanks for the lovely feedback, so glad you found us good value and that our 'servery system' worked for you. It does allow people to move through fairly quickly as long as we remain on the ball and all our coffee machines are working well! Glad to hear that our afternoon tea defeated you, that's what we...

This is a very popular garden centre run by the same family for generations but right up-to-date. The range and quality of plants is good, it has the inevitable range of gimmicky items and a very good cafe. Parking is on-site but it can be full on popular days.

Thank you for your kind comments, We love what we do and are lucky enough to have a wonderful group of enthusiastic (if slightly strange) people here. We are human of course so we have the ability to mess things up, occasionally we make decisions to change things that don't go down well and we need to know. Moving a... More

Visited Stewart's again following a mention in 2016. Good to see the restaurant has sorted out the food over done problem. All due to Martin Stewart, so thanks to him for correcting it. Had the Stewart's Steak pie this time, how do they manage to get these to stand up? Very rare to get a proper pie with so much... More

Description
Stewarts are a family-owned chain of two Garden Centres, one in Christchurch and one in Broomhill, near Wimborne. Both have excellent Coffee Shops with 5 star ratings from the Food Standards Agency. We are open late on Thursday nights, when we have local musicians entertaining with live music. Our coffee shops close 1 hour before the Garden Centre closes. Please see our website for more details.
