Love eating at the bay leaf at horkans garden centre. Food is of a very high standard particularly Sunday roast the beef is the most tender I've tasted! Delicious!! If you only want something quick & light you cannot beat the veg soup here it's the best ever!! Oh & cant forget to mention the banoffee pie amazing!!

We had the fish and chips, portion size was very good and the batter on the fish was so nice and crisp. Nothing was greasy and was very clean and busy inside. Will definately return.

As always the food was fantastic. We arrived early as the it can get quite busy the later in the afternoon. Horkens garden centre had 3 deer housed out back which amused the children. Very happy and will return.
