Since opening in 2011, Gardener’s Kitchen at Trioscape Garden Centre has proved a very popular destination for hearty breakfasts, morning coffee, lunches and afternoon tea.
All of the meals are freshly prepared to order using locally sourced produce wherever possible. The regular menu includes dishes such as home-baked cottage pie, fish and chips, salads, and freshly made sandwiches and panini as well as specials of the day. During the winter there is also warming homemade soup on offer. The team serves a superb roast dinner on Wednesdays and Sundays, with a ten per cent senior citizen discount available on Wednesday's for roast dinners only.
The team is very proud to say that all of the delicious cakes, scones and desserts are handmade on the premises. Why not indulge in an afternoon tea (must be pre-booked) which includes sandwiches, scones and cakes? The restaurant is open Monday to Saturday 9am until 4.30pm, and breakfast is served from 9am until noon throughout the week, and from 10.30am until 11.30am on Sundays. Hot lunches are available from noon until 3pm during the week.
There are plenty of places to sit – there is a comfy seating area where you can enjoy a relaxing coffee and slice of cake, or restaurant style seating. In the warmer months, why not sit outside on the terrace, which overlooks the plant area and countryside beyond?
The team is also able to cater for larger parties and offers a group menu featuring a selection of meals from the menu, or a group roast. Booking is essential, as this place is hugely popular with locals and visitors alike.
