Never felt the need to write a bad review before but the service and quality were so poor I feel i have to. Got the orders wrong twice, painfully slow and poor quality food. Understaffed too. Nothing to recommend it apart from pleasant staff who were clearly working under too much pressure.

After visiting the garden centre I stopped into the cafe for a quick coffee. There was the usual choice of teas and coffees available such as you would expect to find anywhere else, and as expected a generous selection of traybakes. Altogether there was nothing that you would not be available in a good well attended cafe anywhere else.

the stew is ok from here but when the café is busy you have to wait a while as the service is slow.so I think they need to work on getting through customers quicker.

This is usually a busy spot and there's good food for either a snack or lunch. The big minus is the cost of the eats! Scones, fruit pie etc are good but they're priced way above other places of similar standard on the North Coast. Staff are good but when I mentioned the prices to one server, she seemed to... More

Driving around the North Coast and in need of a snack we decided to go to the cafe at Creative Gardens Bushmills. As we were driving from the Giant’s Causeway, we headed towards Bushmills, turned right on Main Street, first left onto Priestland Road and then took the 2nd turning on the right up Ballyclough Road. The Garden Centre has... More

Had two cups of tea, a traybake and a slice of lemon drizzle cake! Cost was £8.00! Thought this was rather expensive! The food was good but just felt it was all very over priced!

Garden centre in general is in good condition though it can be messy and look neglected in places. The cafe is clean and has a nice atmosphere but the prices aren't so nice. At £2.25 for a traybake worth £1 at most, it's best having something to eat before coming out or sharing with other people.
