  • In the interests of fairness; I would like to note a massive thumbs up for Brookside . I had recently read very mixed reviews and had heard dramatic ..horror stories about the lack of facilities!! & e...  more »
  • The owners have clearly been working hard investing in this centre. It's never easy in your own home to throw things away and probably worse so with a business - but they've put a lot of effort in eve...  more »
  • My friend and I went for a coffee while the two girls went to paint pots - £2.10 for a rather small cup of coffee seemed rather a lot but we decided we would go back to have lunch after looking round....  more »

  • Recently redone, due to nearby road improvements removing part of their car park. This means that an already superb garden centre is even better. The train rides are great for small children, and the cafe is great for everyone! (if a little expensive). A superb selection of plants and shrubs, along with the usual artisan food and strange garden furniture. They also have an aquarium and a model shop.
  • First visit since recent changes. All very nice. Went in the restaurant but it was very quiet and no one told us where to sir. However someone eventually came to us and took our order and everything was very nice.
  • This place is undergoing a drastic refurbishment so plant stock is low as of June 2017. The café is new and spacious, food is average price and a reasonable selection. There is a miniature railway, model shop, mostly railway items but there are some model kits of aircraft, ships, cars. There is an aquatic shop with tropical and cold water fish and all the equipment you need to keep or set up a new aquarium.
  • Having quite a make over at the moment but what is done is done well. Great place for little kids with the miniature railway (£1.80 per person, 2 and under free) also has an occasional mini fairground again great for young kids with rides about £1.50 to £2 each. Good value fun. Also sells expensive flowers and gardening equipment.
  • Not good. Fierce aircon. Would be nice to read a menu at your table and not stand at the counter looking at boards above you r head and feeling under pressure from the rest of the Queue. What happened to the simple plate mostly designed to keep food on the plate. Such simple things that your competition seem to get right.
