Fiona and her staff never disappoint. Hopleys is a great place to go for coffee, tea or lunch. The food is really fresh and the salads accompanying the delicious main courses are really imaginative and full of interesting flavours. The atmosphere is casual and there are always lots of locals there. Hopleys Plants, where the cafe is situated, is great... More

This is my second review. Last time I visited there were just a few tables inside and a comfy sofa. There was also fantastic ginger cake! The cafe has changed a bit but that is only a reflection that they are doing well - deservedly. There are many more tables inside and also some outside. The outstanding item this time... More

What a lovely meal and wonderful atmosphere! I have been here a handful of times and I've not been disappointed. The quality of the food is outstanding and tastes beautiful. I always look forward to visiting here, but make sure you book as it's always very busy!!!

I visited with friends for afternoon tea whilst viewing the gardens and although not hugely comfortable there was an array of healthy dishes as well as naughty cakes!Good value for money and a lovely afternoon tea( others were eating scrumptious lunches at 3pm)

Went with group of walkers for tea and cake. A large group of us arrived (by appointment) and were quickly served. Cake selection was impressive and mine was very nice, my only complaint was that some of the others got bigger servings! Very pleasant staff, good food and atmosphere.

This is a lovely independent garden centre selling different pants from the ordinary chains.They provide excellent advice on bee and insect friendly plants. The tea room is a delight providing organic tea, and home made delicious cakes. M had pear, hazlenut and chocolate cake. A delight! They are a large garden area which is open to all to walk around.... More

We had coffee and cakes while hunting for plants for the garden. The coffee and cakes were as good as you can get and the selection of plants at Hopleys was excellent. We also loved the chance to walk round their garden. We will be bringing the family next time.

This isn't a grand restaurant or anything, more a cosy casual chilled place to have an informal bite. Made in a large cabin, various home made tasty dishes. Whilst the food isn't the best we've eaten, it's none the less very pleasant, and the atmosphere is great. There are large gardens for the children to run around and you can... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon when they had an art exhibition on. I found the food to be well presented and very tasty. The Cafe/Restaurant have some cosy chairs outside and as we were visiting on a sunny day is was lovely to sit outside overlooking part on the grounds. My wife had a pot of tea which she said...
