Gurn food review 3 - Poinsettias and puddings!

One of our regular readers has given us another of their occasional food reviews.

It’s not the first place that would have come to mind for a fantastic Christmas lunch but it turned out that it was the place to be!  Broadleys Garden Centre is always a great place to go for a cuppa and cake, or a sandwich for lunch but it is also the ideal place to go for one of the best Christmas lunches I have had in a long time! Turkey with all the trimmings served for just £6.99, perfect portion size and very, very tasty.  Selection of puddings after, all at £2.60, included Christmas pudding, crumbles and sticky toffee pudding to name but a few all served with either cream, custard or ice cream.  A great deal at under £10 for a two course lunch for sure. 

The selection of snacks and baking on offer is always second to none and with good coffee and pots of tea on offer too, it’s a must!  Prices range from a couple of pounds for light snacks up to £5/6 for meals.  Food is ordered at the counter and then table served, staff very efficient and courteous even when obviously very busy (we got the last seat in the house today).  In addition to great food there is also a great selection of gifts as well as the usual plants, flowers, bulbs etc.  Plenty of parking outside and easily accessible makes it an ideal place for young and old.  Fabulous food and festive fayre!
