As the weather has been rather miserable recently, we have extended the 4 for £10 compost promotion. It will now end on the 28th March, giving a little longer to get your garden looking lovely! 😀🌸

We come as a family every year at xmas as we love all your decorations, seeing Santa and then having lunch in the restaurant. Came yesterday and was first year we were disappointed with our visit. Sti...ll loved walking round and buying lots of Xmas goodies but the queue for Santa took the shine off of it for a lot of the children in the queue yesterday. We waited 1hr 15mins which for my 5&2 year old was far too long. In the end my oldest was asking to just leave the queue. Santa was lovely and very engaging and the gift was lovely too but it was just far too long in the queue.
Also our lunch was disappointing, you had run out of carvery sub rolls so offered to do them as sandwiches which we said yes too but the bread was so dry that it was inedible. We did send 1 lot back to be changed but it wasn’t much better the second time. The omelette, children’s meal and carvery were lovely though so can’t fault them at all.

Took my son along with my friend and her 2 kids today for Breakfast with Santa & had a fantastic time! Breakfast was great - big selection of hot food, along with cereals and juices, and tea/coffee se...rved at the table. The staff couldn’t do enough for us, and the entertainment was pitched at the perfect level to entertain the kids (& big kids aka adults!!). Santa was so engaging with the kids, and really took the time to listen to them & make them feel special. Really got us in the festive spirit and would recommend to anyone!! See More

Wow we came and saw Father Christmas today with my daughter my mum,Nan,niece and sister in law. Was absolutely fantastic we pre booked are tickets and didn’t have to queue when we got there just gone ...11. Grotto was fantastic very magical (loved the snow ball throwing) elves were very friendly and brilliant with little ones as was Father Christmas he didn’t make us feel rushed at all and made a real fuss of the little ones. They loved their gift and loved the reindeers. Defo worth the money.
Will defo be coming back next year! ���

We came today for a look round and a bite to eat and decided to take our 6 year old to visit Santa. What can we say - the most convincing Santa we have ever seen! Santa nailed it with his comments and... our son came away telling us that it was the real Santa because he knew all about him and what he has been doing. Very impressive! Thank you Santa! 🎅🏻🎅🏻 See More

Booked our 6 yr old & 1 and half ur old to see a Santa in the 12-1 slot, started queuing at 11:50, finally got to see Santa at 1:10pm. An hour & 10 minutes waiting, no updates or apology while waiting... at all. Santa was good, my eldest loved it but youngest was to tired, hit n grouchy by then. Presents at the end we’re nice though but won’t be returning next year based on overall experience. See More

We visited yesterday and absolutely loved it. It was magical. The decorations were perfect in the Christmas section to make your customers feel festive. I have one question. there an age limit on... visitors to Santa's Grotto, as at 50, I was so wanting to view the Winter Wonderland and see Santas reindeer if they were in, but my husband drew the line at taking the elfie selfie.

Popped in to check out Christmas goodies and was completely taken aback by the marvellous displays. The staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble & the cafe was a delight with g...reat food choices at extremely reasonable prices. Only popped in to look and spent half a day there - will definitely be back. See More

We saw Father Christmas this morning with our two children, niece and nephew. It was one of the best Father Christmas experiences I have had he had a good chat with the children and got all their litt...le habits right! Would definitely recommend. The children loved feeding the reindeer too. Such good value for money. Thank you highway nursery for getting us into the Christmas spirit and with such a good start x See More

Joe High's (as it used to be) was always lovely and the cafe and restaurant were great. This was our first time back and they have obviously changed hands from the old days. Nothing was fresh in the c...afe and the place was quite dirty. The chocolate brownies were stale, the fruit scones so dry and unappealing, it was really surprising... Won't be returning anytime in the future.... What a shame! See More

Unfortunately due to the weather we had to close early today.

We're hoping to be open over the weekend, however it is meant to snow again tonight so we're crossing our fingers it won't be too bad.

Unfortunately due to the extreme weather conditions we will be closed today. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

It looks as thought the Beast from the East has well and truly hit us!

The store is open with the restaurant closed, however if you are passing and in need of a hot drink the cafe is open.

Stay Safe 😊
