But Duchy to the rescue and Rob put the plant "by for me". Fab journey out over the moor and Jamaica... More

We were a group of 19 and we pre-ordered lunch. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Reasonably priced too. The cafe has fantastic views and the log fire is a nice touch.

It was my first time visiting the garden centre for a catch up with a friend. We spent a couple of hours having lunch here. The staff were lovely and cheerful. The menu was much more varied than I imagined for a small café. The service was quick and polite, the food was lovely. Would definitely recommend to family and... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review and thank you for your kind comments about the service and venue.

My 17 year old daughter and I popped in for lunch. It's a lovely setting with a beautiful view across the valley to Restormel castle. Depending on the light the castle itself can be quite camouflaged by it's deeply wooded setting. Makes for a bit of fun trying to spot it. Once located you realise it is quite big and... More

We visited the coffee shop with our children during half term. This was our 4th visit in 12 months. The food was lovely as always, but the service was very poor. We had noticed how slow the service had been previously, but put this down to good food cooked to order. We were also content to wait in wonderful surroundings.... More

Thanks you for taking the time to post your review. Thank you also for your regular custom this year and for your kind words about our food. I am very sorry that you found the service disappointing. A spilled cappuccino followed by a forgotten one are certainly not great examples of customer service and I am very sorry for that.... More
