World's End Garden Centre, Aylesbury
The pets department at World's End stocked no pets but
there was a good range of pet accessories and feeds.
The aquarium centre at World's End was run by Maidenhead Aquatics.
This is not one of their largest shops but it still managed to stock
an amazingly large amount of fish and accessories. The fish looked
healthy and well-kept.
The only criticism we have is that the top row of the fish tanks
is very high and the fish are not fully visible for some

The Cafe at World's End is unattractive with the
tables arranged in three rows in a long, poorly decorated room.
There are seating and tables available outside in an uncovered area.
There was a long queue when we arrived at the peak lunch time
period which seemed to be caused by slow service at the counter
rather than the number of people.
There are no main meals on offer at the Worlds End
garden centre. There are a variety of snacks including baked
potatoes, sandwiches and salads plus coffee, tea and soft drinks.
The food quality is medium to low although the coffee and teas are
fine. The prices are average for a cafe of this type.
Many people now have lunch at garden centre restaurants
and cafes because the food is served quickly, there is a good range of
food which is often home made and is of good quality. This is not the
case with this cafe. Best to do your shopping and call in at a nearby
pub if you are looking for good food for lunch.
Nearby Pub For a Good Meal
Turn left out of Worlds End garden centre and there is a great
pub on the other side of the road. It's 2 minutes walk from the
The Marquis of Granby is now specialising in Greek food and the
menu was excellent. There were more traditional dishes, like steak,
but we would recommend the Greek dishes for a change.
The atmosphere is good, the decor pleasant, the food
excellent and the landlord is very welcoming. Give it a try next time
you're at Worlds End, you won't be disappointed. And yes, this is a
totally independent review, we have nothing to do with the Marquis of
Granby public house, its food is simply far better than at Worlds End
The house plants looked healthy and there was a wide selection to choose
from. The prices were average for a garden centre. Unusually, several of
the plants were not identified at all and had no care instructions.
Wheelchairs are available at the main entrance for no charge and all
areas appeared to be wide enough and flat enough for wheelchair use.
The toilets were very poorly signed. Although they were dated, they were
clean and functional. There were toilets for the disabled and mother and

The plants at World's End were good quality and the prices were
average. The aquatics centre was also good. In contrast, the cafe
was poor. There were a variety of gift shops with a large garden
furniture area. The layout of the garden centre was unappealing and
poorly signed. Overall, not a garden centre we would choose.
