Tall Trees Restaurant
Forest Garden Centre, Oddford Lane, Two Dales, DE4 2EX
The time has come for Forest Garden Centre's well-kept secret to be revealed. Its coffee shop and bistro, Tall Trees, can be found in the corner of the centre's plantaria, where hungry visitors can pull up a chair and sample some topnotch food. Tall Trees is proud to be different, and it really is. Just take a look at the huge home-baked scones that are made daily on the premises for one example of what sets it apart. Order one of the famous cream teas - a savoury option with cream cheese and chutney, or a sweet option with jam and cream - and you'll be left in no doubt that you've sampled one of the finest scones for miles around. Alternatively, there's a plentiful selection of hot food that's served daily, including various quiches such as the ever-popular Stilton, bacon and apricot, and mushroom and Gruyère cheese.
