My wife and I had the OAP special which consisted of a main,a dessert and tea or coffee for £8-50 pp. We ordered at 1-15pm and at 1-40 the food arrived. I have to say it was delicious. My wife had the fish and I had steak pie and fresh veg and it was hot and tasty and we could... More

Half a dozen people in front of me in the que but I waited at least 30 mins! Food very mediocre and nothing for someone who doesn't like fried or fatty! Will never go again!

As a frequent visitor to the restaurant I'm disgusted that management have still not got a grip on the staffing levels. Last week I waited in the queue from 1.05 until 1.46 to be served. There was only one girl serving and had been abandoned on her own without any support and doing the best she could to keep things... More

I visit regularly for a coffee but only whilst waiting for my car to be cleaned on the same site ( they are brilliant by the way). I have also had breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea here and the food is mostly good. However what never changes is the innability of the counter staff to serve efficiently. They are painfully...

We were treated to afternoon tea and at the time of our arrival (late afternoon) the restaurant was quite quiet. Very nice pot of tea in good size cups and our tea was soon served on gleaming white and clean plates and very nicely presented. Afternoon tea for us was tuna and cucumber sandwich for my wife and ham and... More

I met here with friends for lunch and gossip, the service was nice but the food overpriced and poorly presented. I had the jacket potato with baked beans( £6) and quite honestly, I've given a five year old a bigger portion! My friends also were unhappy with their meals. I will not be going here to eat again.

Today we visited the Wyevale Garden Centre at Ramsgate to purchasesome bedding plants and with that mission accomplished turned our thoughts to lunch. We decided to eat at the Restaurant within the Garden Centre, previously we have had coffee here but never a meal. As it was lunch time the tables quickly filled with customers of the Garden Centre with... More

Had a lovely panini and hot chocolate here, downfalls were what seemed like a small queue which took over 15 minutes to get through, staff overcharged for what was ordered although it's clearly written on the food boards behind them and they have a till to add up on. Not sure how they can speed things up but it seems... More

Its a shame that the queues (long or short) move so slowly. My last visit was a prime example of this............only one person serving ( 2.30pm-ish) . The serving of coffee is quite a lengthy process and so therefore the queue builds . More staff are needed to serve and take food orders. At busy times (12.30pm-1.30pm) the queue has... More

Despite the obvious problems here, long queues, customers quite vocal in their discontent at the poor service nobody seems to listen. I would compliment the kitchen staff as food is always good but the front of house staff have very little idea of customer service (overheard them complaining about a customer very loudly) and the system of simply serving drinks...
