“Beautiful garden centre, food disappointing.”

Derwen Garden Centre & Farm Shop

Reviewed 30 March 2018 via mobile

We called in for Sunday lunch and both ordered the roast - one with meat one without (for the vegetarian). I still can't quite work out how the vegetables had been cooked. They looked as if a blow torch had been flashed across one side to create the roasted look. Sadly, the carrots cooked in this style could have been sucked up through a straw, they were so soft! The roast (!) was very disappointing.

Latte coffee came from a self service machine and was neither tasteful or hot!

Sweet was an Easter cheesecake which was delicious.

Service was excellent and very speedy.

I would return, but not for a roast or a latte.

Great Garden Centre with nice restaurant and a great maze for the kids. Excellent selection of gifts and everything you need for the garden.

This is a nice garden centre and farm shop. My visit was just a quick one but staff seemed welcoming and friendly.

Good range of plants but not the cheapest place to visit.

Nice little cafe there with a good range of food and drinks.

If you have kids then it’s got an outdoor slide for them to use.

The garden centre is very clean and tidy.

Toilets were excellent, fresh and clean and hot water available.

They have a maze for kids. The gift shop is filled with unique knick knacks and the cafe has amazing food from hot tea to small desserts. I thoroughly enjoyed their card collection and the live plants are top notch!
