Lovely restaurant. Stopped in for lunch with my mum. Quiche of the day was amazing (spinach, red pepper and feta). Came with a huge salad and dressings, couldn't even eat it all! Very rare I over eat on salad. All so fresh tasting. Earl Grey...tea was delicious. Wish I had room for some of their amazing cakes. Staff were really friendly, helpful and prompt. It was a really lovely lunch. All pro's, no con's. Thank you.More

The service is first class. Including finding out someone was lactose intolerant and an offer of pudding with cream was pointed out. The pudding was superb. The food is 6star. The cost is good. This is in the best garden centre restaurant we have visited....Nothing was too much trouble. Obviously fresh local ingredients.More

We visited this garden centre and tea room quite a few time during an extended stay in the area and we just loved it! The food is fantastic (the breakfasts are particularly great), the staff are just absolutely lovely (Sandy made us particularly welcome on...quite a few of our visits). The only negative? It’s not close enough to our home in Dorset for weekly visits! 😊More

This is a regular lunch date and never fails to delight. Food is always hot and tasty but the welcome is even warmer. There is so much choice. We also love the afternoon tea on special occasions. Jan, Sandy, Nell and Luke always go the...extra mile. We love it at Fairview.More

Well done Luke! This was the most attentive service I have received in my life, pitched at just the right level, and I have been to some of the most celebrated restaurants around the world. You were incredibly thoughtful and helpful, and the food was...good too. If I still had a chain of restaurants I would be trying to persuade you to lead them. Thank you. MarioMore

We had a great lunch, the food was very tasty and the team looked after us extremely well. I thought restaurants had stopped asking guests if their meal was OK, if they needed anything, if they would like more water for their tea and smiling...with them. We will be going on the way back past as well Last and really least, the prices are extremely reasonableMore

The staff are really top rate, polite and helpful even when busy. These top ratings...are well deserved. This place is a gem and we shall certainly return. Whats not to like.More

What an excellent find. We have been to the Garden Centre many times over the years, but never eaten here as we always have something along our travels elsewhere. Today, we thought we would give it a go, we are soooo glad we did, absolute...perfection. I have the Big breakfast, my other half had the smaller one as she is not so greedy as me 🤣 The only thing we didn’t like was the Mushrooms, as for us, they were too strong in taste, but other than that, everything was fantastic. From the moment we arrived, throughout the service to when we left, we were treated like they really care about the customer service & food. We aim to be back again in a few weeks time, we cannot wait to have a repeat experience, I intend to go for the Mega breakfast next time, as I want to try the Hash Browne & Black pudding in particular. The Garden Centre also has some superb items & again, the staff so friendly. Superb experience & great value..yes could be seen as a little expensive, but not when you take into consideration, the fantastic Service & Quality of produce.More

The staff were very welcoming. The food was of a very good quality, served hot and fresh. It was busy and is clearly very popular but the staff were very attentive and we were not rushed. I don't eat dairy and they checked very thoroughly...that it was not an alergy. Lovely woodburner in the corner kept the whole place cosy. We will definitly visit again.More

We booked afternoon tea to celebrate a friends birthday; I phoned to book and explain that I have allergies (gluten and milk) would it be possible to arrange something for me too.. the gentleman I spoke to could not have been more helpful and left...me confident that I could eat safely. We arrived on Saturday to a warm welcome and were very well looked after. Fabulous service as the tea flowed. The food was fantastic and I had an afternoon tea that was friendly and looked as good as my friends. We had a lovely time and were grateful for a box to take the leftovers home as were to full to finish.More
