The entrance to Brookfields Garden centre is modern and impressive so
we decided to call in and review them. We looked at the plants, checked out the
indoor sales area and tasted the food in the cafe. This is the result of our

The outdoor plants area is partially covered (about 20%) mainly for
seasonal plants. the layout is reasonably pleasant with some straight paths but some
displays to break the monotony. Some main paths were bricked but the majority were
reasonably solid gravel.
Annoyingly, for the whole hour or so we were at the garden centre, portions of the
plants area were inaccessible because a couple of sprinklers were watering the plants
and the paths. This was late morning to midday.
The selection of plants was good as was their quality and general condition.
INDOOR SALES AREA
The indoor sales area had a good range of gifts, garden furniture and general
gardening accessories. There was also a good Food Hall with a good range of
delicatessen type food.
In common with some modern garden centres the metal beams
were exposed, but for some reason it was more oppressive and obvious in Brookfields
The cafe was also affected by the metal beams, not the best environment.
It was a basic layout made more attractive by the pictures and decorations. The tables
and chairs were of basic plastic design but the whole area was kept scrupulously clean.
There was a variety of hot potatoes, sandwiches, toasties, cakes, coffees and teas. The
prices were average with the food quality being slightly above average.
A large aquatics centre with live fish, pond plants and accessories.

Modern clean and functional. Ladies and gents only.
Adjacent to the entrance the car park was on level firm ground.
