Went for lunch today. Great cakes. Quiche deli boared was ok but the quiche was a bit bland . Salad , couscous , bread & coleslaw was nice. My wife had macaroni which looked delicious. I had a gypsy creme & my wife had apple pie & cream to finish. Both were delicious. A bit overpriced I think but a... More

Bad service today. £8.25 for a tea cup size of soup and a plain ham sandwich. £2.10 for a bottle of water. Could sit in a "proper restaurant" for that price. Staff member came over and said we were undercharged (their error not ours). Won't be back as having to remortgage the house now! Ha ha! Shocking! Doesn't even deserve... More

We are sorry you did not have a good experience with us on Saturday, but I would like to raise a few points in our defence. The menu boards quite clearly state the prices of each item so you must have known the cost of the food before you purchased it and it was your choice to do so. The... More

Popped in, in passing, for a quick lunch break. Remembered it from a while ago, when it was quite good. A noticeable improvement, service seemed much better organised. Food was excellent, all prepared on the premises and obviously very fresh. Staff all very friendly and helpful. My wife had Lentil Soup followed by Banoffee Pie, both delicious. I had Coronation...

Quality food with a wide choice of tempting cakes & other goodies It obviously has a deserved reputation & was surprisingly busy on a Tuesday afternoon. The staff are very friendly making it a very relaxed place to enjoy a good value snack or meal

I hadn't been here for several years and it seems to have grown. The paninis are enormous ... in fact scones, meringues and cake not to put you off must have been baked in fertiliser as it is all enormous and scrumptious. Coffee is a very good blend. The service is relatively quick for a Saturday lunchtime. Seating is plentiful... More

Sorry about the weight gain but thank you very much for your review - we all appreciate a "pat on the back". All the baking is carried out literally above your heads as you are sitting in the Cafe, so it is as fresh as can be. Kind regards Michael More

Dropped in at Hayes Garden Land for a coffee with a friend! I had heard about their scones from one of their bakers, and finally had the opportunity to try them. Sultana scones, cheese scones, chocolate and orange scones - they even had plain scones. Furthermore, you get to choose your own scone, a privilege which always pleases me! I... More

Description
Situated within the Garden Centre this large Bakery Cafe presents delicious homemade food fast and efficiently. Worth reviewing.

Hayes of Symington is a family firm that evolved from Hayes of Ambleside and the 8th generation is now very much involved. The Scottish "branch" started in May 1987 and although related to the Ambleside family it has no business or financial ties.

The business ethic is to provide quality products at a constant fair price in pleasant surroundings and steady employment for approximately 40 local staff.
