We have been before and had hot chocolate, very nice indeed. This time we also had lunch. It was very nice and we really enjoyed it. The price was reasonable too. Certainly recommend it.

We visit here regularly and always have a good meal. They have gluten free bread options for the sandwiches and also serve gluten free cakes. The service is good and staff always friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Menu is standard fare, with the added bonus of a daily special which varies from a posh sandwich right through to a Moroccan Tagine chicken dish. Really well done for the variety.... More

Drive passed this place alot so decided to turn off the road. Not disappointed had a lovely afternoon cream tea. Sandwich, cake and coffee all freshly made. To much but great value. Had something similar at local garden center which was obviously made prior to and was like cardboard and dry. Will be back.

The Willow tree Cafe at Gleave's Garden Centre in Frodsham is a delightful little place that still believes in homemade food, using local suppliers, fresh ground coffee, family values and that a smile and a piece of cake will solve most problems. Specialising in breakfast and lunch, both eat in and takeaway.
