Hilltop Garden Centre, Coventry
Hilltop garden centre did not sell any house plants at the time of
our first visit. However, when we revisited in December 2008 there was an admirably good
selection of seasonal house plants. See the next page for more details.
All the normal sales area (gifts, tools, fertilisers, compost
etc.) were there in common with other garden centres of this size.
In addition to these, Hilltop provide an unusually comprehensive
range of fencing, paving, chipping and good quality outdoor
The floor was flat and most of the aisles were wide enough for a
wheelchair. Wheelchairs were available at the entrance for no cost.
AQUATICS AND PETS
No pets or fish were sold at this garden centre. However an adequate
range of pet and fish feeds / accessories were available.
We revisited this garden centre in December 2008 and it had been extensively
renovated. There was a new Italian chef, Ino, and the menu was different from
the previous very unadventurous one.
The cooking area was on display, so you know exactly how the meals are prepared. Ino
told us that all the meals were prepared freshly to order in the kitchen.
The menu was more adventurous but still offered good value. Click the pictures
on either side to see the basic menu. As well as this there were other main meal
specials on offer. Everything on the menu we saw, was under a fiver, excellent
Gone were the queues of our previous visit, service was prompt and pleasant. We
visited in early December, not exactly peak time, even so the main cafe area was
full of customers.
The food quality was good and the dishes were presented very well. Both the coffee
and tea were excellent.
We can now fully recommend this cafe. The decor is basic but clean and well
kept. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the food tasty and good value. Well done Ino and
The toilets were clean with no queues.
The car park was good with sufficient space and a flat surface.
