Stratford Garden Centre
Cafe Bar Restaurant
Situated less than three miles from Stratford-upon-Avon town centre, towards Long Marston Airfield, Stratford Garden Centre is not only a great place to stock up on plants, gardening equipment and homeware – it is also a fun destination for the whole family, offering a toy shop, pottery painting sessions and a wealth of eating options.
The Lime Tree Café, with its casual wooden coffee tables and comfy chairs, is the perfect spot for a quick bite to eat, be it breakfast, elevenses, light lunch or afternoon tea. Choose from soups, freshly made hot and cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes, hot daily specials, cakes and cream teas. For a more substantial meal, such as their signature beer-battered cod and chips, head to The Lime Tree Restaurant. Everything is cooked to order by the team of experienced chefs who are equally happy to cater for individuals, couples, families and large groups, including children’s birthdays and coach trips.
Also ideal for children’s parties, or hen dos, is Oh So Scrumptious! – the garden centre’s ice cream parlour and pottery painting studio, situated in The Shopping Courtyard. Here, you’ll find Joe Delucci’s Italian-style ice cream, smoothies, freakshakes, freak hot chocolates and homemade waffles. All three venues offer tea and coffee, and a special lunch bag for children.
Finally, don’t miss Pownalls fine food shop, where you can stock up on locally sourced fresh produce, larder essentials and speciality foods before you head home.
