“Hornsea Garden Centre is brilliant and really worth a visit if you’re in the area. Apart from beautiful plants which are thriving and properly looked after, there are all sorts of other sections to visit within, which support local producers.

The food is fresh, well cooked and delicious and at around £12 is excellent value for money for what you get. Finally, the staff are lovely, hardworking and so helpful.” - Heather Choudhary
