  • Lovely little cafe with great views. The gardens are beautiful with great little touches for the kids. Well worth stopping if your passing.
  • Have just visited Plant World with my friend and have to say the welcome smile from Robyn who was pleasantly cheerful we enjoyed a lovely coffe and toasted tea cake I. The bright and cheerful restaurant with stunning views toward the River Teivn and beyond to Bishopsteignton there is also an outside terrace and access to the nursery lots of different plants and shrubs. We didn't have time to go into the very peaceful gardens however it certainly is a must to do would fully recommend Plant world by the time we left the restaurant it was very busy and Robyn was coping very well,serving lunches and coffees also in between serving customers who had bought plants.
  • A beautiful place even in the early sea mist this morning and the Cafe looked pretty enough on entry. However, the service was sadly lacking. The staff were very 'off hand' towards us on arrival. We have four children who, for once, were being exceptionally behaved. There was no Good Morning on entry and the Cafe was empty except for us. We were just viewed from a distance with sour faces as if we had disturbed their peaceful Sunday morning and they certainly did not wish a family with children to turn up. I was polite and went and ordered our drinks, scone and paid for ice creams for the children. having just traveled from East Devon we were glad of the refreshment. I then asked about tickets for entry to the garden. The response was that we could but there would be no way we could get the buggy in as it was such a big buggy. the attitude was rude and as if wanting to put us off as we had children. Brushing us aside like dirt. She might as well have said you have kids we don't like kids so don't bother. The drinks and scone were acceptable but the table service was not; cups were just thrust in front of us and the waitress duly left without so much as an 'enjoy'. I spoke to both waitresses as we left they were arrogant and stood to their ground and said they usually welcome families but our buggy was too big and their was no point although we had spotted a door that held a sign that said 'wheelchair access' which I was later told this only gave access to the Nursery which we would have loved to visit but by now had been thoroughly put off.. They had so obviously taken a dislike. We left with 4 saddened children and as parents we were disgusted with the way we had been dealt with. We did not get see the gardens and we will not be back. We will go to places in future were the staff are happy, welcoming and where families are made to feel welcome on entry and are not treated with contempt, stared at and made to feel thoroughly unwanted as we have children. Sad, as it exactly the kind of place we and other families with young children would visit. We could see nothing on your website or literature to say that it was inaccessible for buggies/wheelchairs as if it had we would never have come so far to be turned away. May be you need to address this to prevent further negativity and disappointed visitors.
  • A really interesting gardens with winding paths through a hillside with wonderful views over this part of Devon towards Teignmouth. Excellent selection of well priced unusual plants, and a lovely new cafe. It's a small family run business apparently and they sell the seeds of many plants some of which they introduced themselves following their globe trotting plant hunting trips. The service has always been outstanding whenever I have visited, and you can get an annual season ticket for about £10.
  • Unfriendly. I had pulled in to the car park in an emergency. My car had steam/ smoke pouring out from the bonnet. It was approaching 5.30 and the traffic was heavy. So I thought it best to get off the road asap. An angry looking older woman approached the car and said I'm closing in 5 minutes. That was it. No are you ok? do you need some help? I explained my presence and that I would get out as soon as she was ready, but I didn't want to block her way out. She grunted and walked off. Thank you, thank you very much you miserable old woman. I have previously brought friends and family to your café won't be doing that any more. I shall also tell everyone I work with too.
