We often visit Tall Trees. On this occasion we were surprised on Saturday that the young lady who served us didn't take our order using a notepad. The scones are always very nice, homemade and a very generous size, however the jam served is tasteless...More

I love this place. I meet there regularly with a large group of friends and its my favourite place in the Matlock area for lunch. All the food is homemade and delicious. Amazing cakes and scones. Give it a try. You wont be disappointed.

Parents/grandparents/carers/guardians be warned, this garden centre has no changing facilities for small children. Such a simple thing to rectify. I note another reviewer also found the general cleanliness of the toilets lacking as did we. Owners really must do better.More

Thank you for your review. All toilet related feedback needs to be addressed to the garden centre. The restaurant is a separate business and we are just responsible for the food which is always of a high standard . The toilets are cleaned daily but...More

Called in for a snack whilst visiting the garden centre and I was made to feel welcome. It was clean and the staff were friendly. I only had toast and Latte so cannot comment on other food but it all looked really nice.

Just shy of £7 for a what amounted to a pint of apple juice. I was warned it was expensive, I've no problem with expensive, but no garden centre can justify that.
