  • Garden centre + lots of other stuff. Good range of plants from the ordinary to the exotic. And they are all well looked after. Restaurant is huge and often busy with nice views and some outdoor seating. Odd system where you pick a table and then queue up to order not knowing if anyone else in the queue has chosen the same table. The food is good quality and generous if a bit unadventurous. A challenge to vegans and the lactose intolerant. Not overpriced, good selection​ of pots, aquatics, winter clothing, compost, massive amounts of stuff I'd never buy in the gift shop.
  • I have visited many times and cannot complain about the food. I have marked them down because of their continued existence that they will not bring your hot drinks with your meal such as breakfast and EVEN the afternoon tea. Today my breakfast was cold by the time I had queued a second time to buy my coffee. On several occasions I was told I must take my tea that is a PART of the afternoon tea before my sandwiches etc arrived. Each time my tea was then cold and stewed. Please Gates, I am not the only person to feel this way. A small change could greatly improve the Afternoon Tea experience !
  • As a garden lover, you will be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive place. Jt has everything a keen enthusiastic gardener needs And then some.
  • Beautiful garden centre in beautiful rural countryside, extensive range of plants, trees and shrubs, in fact everything and more for your garden, wonderful restaurant with excellent food, well worth a visit even just to look around and enjoy a bite to eat. Well and worthily recommended..
  • So much junk in this shop, chintz madness. Seems to be a cultural mecca to the people of Langham. I don't get it. My son loves the place, he's two years old. They do sell Christmas trees in many sizes.
