Benji Cooks Foster

“Outstanding garden centre! The variety and quality is amazing. Recently visited with family on a Sunday afternoon maybe wanting to stop for a small bite to eat when we noticed they were serving a full roast! Looking at the other plates of roasts coming out the kitchen they looked incredible We couldn’t resist so all opted for the roast apart from my partner who is coeliac ( we will have to pre order in advance for her next time) we were all very impressed the meat was wonderfully tender, roast potatoes were beautiful and a great variety of vegetables cooked perfectly! We will definitely be back! Not to mention all waiting staff were very attentive and diligent with our coeliac guest.”
