Escape the hustle and bustle of the busy Garden Centre and dine in our Willows restaurant. Morning, lunch or afternoon, there’s an emphasis on home-made food, cooked to exacting standards and presented tastefully. We also offer children’s choices and can cater for large groups.
Light and spacious, with beautiful views of the River Brock, the Riverside Cafe offers a range of delicious hot dishes as well as soups, sandwiches and a salad bar. Ingredients are locally sourced for that unforgettable taste of Lancashire.
Our own pastry chefs provide a mouth-watering range of cakes and pastries to accompany our teas and coffees. In fact, our cakes are so good that you’ll want to take them home with you, which is why they’re all available to take away!
For children, we offer a five-item lunch box, with a choice of drinks, sandwiches, cheese, vegetables and fruit. Each lunch comes with an activity sheet, crayons and seeds which children can plant when they get home.
