Amerton Garden Centre
There was a small display of indoor garden plants for sale and they
looked in good condition. The prices were average.
INDOOR SALES AREA
As we mentioned earlier, Amerton Garden Centre is not your average
garden centre. This applies to the indoor sales area. It is
about the size of a small to medium garden centre. It will not
satisfy all your everyday gardening needs, we were unable to
find a spade or fork for sale. Instead they have concentrated on
rather unusual items. Possibly these appeal more to the
clientele they are aiming at.
CAFE AT AMERTON FARM AND CRAFT CENTRE
I think the cafe was independent from the garden centre, but it
matters not to you as a visitor because they are next door to each
other. The interior of the cafe is very attractive.
You are inside a barn with exposed beams everywhere. There are
steps leading up to a minstrel's gallery. The tables and chairs are
wooden in cottage style.
The food was excellent at the cafe. There was a range of
main meals at around �6.95. Lots of snacks, cakes, teas and
coffees are available at competitive prices.
The cafe had taken
particular care to provide a good range of vegetarian dishes and
some gluten free ones. The cafe claims that all food is cooked to order and the
taste of the food backs up this claim. Service was to your table
by helpful and very pleasant staff.
Unusually, the cafe at
Amerton has produced a leaflet outlining their Food Purchasing
Policy. Ask for it at the cafe if you are interested. It
explains that they attempt to source food locally wherever
Every type of food served at the cafe is itemised together with the
principal supplier and their location. I have never seen this in a posh
restaurant let alone a cafe. It's clear that this cafe takes its food
very seriously and excellent meals and snacks are the result. This cafe
has our five star rating.
All areas were accessible by wheelchair without any problems. Floors
were flat and even.
The toilets were adequate with disabled facilities and mother and
Car parking was fine with generally flat surfaces in all areas
