This place needs organising properly. I hadnt been for a long while because of previous poor service. The food is quite good but the organisation and service terrible, I had been the previous day to the wonderful Pudding Ladies café in Millhouses Park, equally busy but much better organised. We waited five minutes to be served at the counter, even... More

After a lovely walk around the gardens we went to the cafe for lunch. Service was slow whilst ordering food and had to change orders as they'd ran out. Half our orders came after half an hour and the other half came after everyone else had finished after a 50 minute wait in total. On top of the wait the... More

Now for the down side, after doing all the park, greenhouse gardens we decided to Visit the cafe what a mistake that was, the bathrooms was beyond... More

We waited 50 minutes for our food to arrive, and when it did ,the order was totally wrong. Only way 2 other diners in conservatory room when we sat down, although several mums with babies on terrace are enjoying the lovely sunny day. Obviously understaffed, and not a pleasant atmosphere on the other side of the counter. Floor and Windows... More

We are sorry but the rating says it all. As is obvious we live in Sheffield and have been sad to see this place go downhill. At one stage it was a full service eaterie with good hot food and drink. Now sadly reduced to little more than a park cafe that is not as good as many in the... More

Unfortunately it has been more of a miss than hit lately. Dirty cups and cutlery, staff rarely clearing tables. It may be underfunded or understaffed, I am not sure, but I doubt we'll be back again soon. Cleaner places to go nearby on Eccleshall Road.

My friend and i went to the cafe for lunch today. What a disaster. Firstly, we couldn't find a menu, queued for 10 mins, to be given a menu and then having to queue again before ordering our food. I ordered a cheese and ham toastie, and my friend a fish finger sandwich. 10 mins later we were then told... More

This place used to be lovely and we came loads when the kids were little. It's horrible now and I wouldn't advise that anyone visit here. My glass was filthy. The sugar bowl was disgusting. The floor hadn't been swept for days and the toilets stank and were revolting. The choice of cakes was minimal and looked unappealing and the... More

I have to start off by saying how nice the botanical gardens is and what a shame that this cafe almost actually spoils the whole place with its poor service & disgusting food. We sat down at a table and went through the menu, chose chips and sausage for the kid and me and the wife chose the only vegetarian... More
