Customer comments

I just wanted to say that when my husband and I visited Cranborne Garden Centre we were really impressed with the choice of plants and gifts and bought some lovely goodies for our garden! We also had a lovely lunch (and cake) in the Garden Room and were really impressed not only with the food and local cider, but also the staff on duty - we will definitely be returning. A.H.

A fantastic display of plants. Lovely gift shop. We stopped off for some plants and to have some food. The food was delicious and a huge portion which was certainly value for your money. I had the welsh rarebit which was beautifully presented and filled me up. The Carrot and Coconut soup was delicious as was the bubble and squeak. Recommend a meal here then to go out and have a look at what plants could adorn your garden afterwards. Staff were all so friendly and helpful, pleasant and courteous and made you feel extra especially welcome. Will visit again soon. M.M.

Fabulous garden centre, one of the loveliest I have visited. S.T.

Beautiful garden, very spiritual, felt as if we had been to a spa, so relaxed were we. J.G.

We as a staff at Cranborne Middle School decided to book the cafe as an evening venue, as we wanted something local and more intimate for our Christmas meal this year. We were certainly not disappointed. From the festive ambience of the beautifully decorated cafe, to the gorgeous food, to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, it really was a perfect evening. From a group of very tired but extremely grateful school teachers and staff - we thank you. We will be back! C.L.
