A couple of weeks ago my Grandma, Lucas and I went to Birkacre garden centre and had dinner in the cafe there.

 

Birkacre garden centre restaurant, Coppull. A battered fish sat on a bed of chips with peas, a lemon and tartar sauce at the side

 

I ordered the cheese quiche but unfortunately it wasn’t going to be ready until after 1 and we were there at 12. We were also told that there were no jacket potatoes that day either. I opted for the chicken tikka masala. My Grandma had fish and chips. Lucas had the chicken nuggets from the children’s menu.

To be honest I was disappointed. The chicken curry had very little flavour and no spice at all. Lucas’ chicken nuggets looked processed rather than whole chicken breast nuggets that he would usually have.

The restaurant was also really cold, many people including my Grandma ate with their coats on.

We returned yesterday and ordered the mini breakfast that is on offer during January for £3.50. It consisted of a slice of toast, hash brown, sausage, bacon, egg and beans. You could also choose tea or coffee with it, they let Lucas choose a juice from the fridge which I liked. The usual cost of a mini breakfast is £4.50 which I think is really reasonable considering you get a drink with it too.

Again the restaurant was quite cold with my Grandma eating with her coat on, although I do think it was slightly warmer than last time. The food was nice but unfortunately it took 30 minutes for it to be served to us so we had already finished our drinks and ordered more for with the breakfast. 

I have heard really good reviews about this restaurant and have previously enjoyed the food there but the last couple of times have been disappointing x

    That’s a shame. Nothing worse than feeling cold. I do think that mini breakfast is great value with a drink though.

    Ahh yeah we used to love it here but then it seemed to go down hill somehow. I think it’s freezing in there too! Nothing worse than being cold!!

    Thats not good especially eating while feeling cold. I hardly eat breakfast and I should really do its one of the most important meal of the day. But that is such a good value for a breakfast.

    That’s not the best experience but it sounds like it could be improved by the management without too much trouble. Let’s hope they do.

    I cant eat with my coat on, it does my head in. A restaurant shouldn’t be cold even in a garden centre. Hope they get better again, so disappointing x
