While the ethos behind Woodbank Nurseries is ‘see it growing, buy it nursery fresh’, you don’t need to be a seasoned gardener to enjoy a visit to Woodbank.
Many come to enjoy the lovely restaurant and gift shop which has a vast range of exquisite home interiors, gifts and cards for every occasion. A visit to this side of Woodbank is a must!
A family run business since 1985, this side of the business is managed by owner Mick Walmsley’s daughter Sally. Sally’s vision and fabulous taste in sourcing beautiful quality gifts and home interiors has seen the gift shop emerge into a mini emporium. You can spend a good couple of hours just browsing around the gift shop alone. Two large rooms filled with branded home interiors, colourful tableware, crockery, upholstery, candles, ornaments and much more.
Gorgeous gifts, pictures, jewellery, toiletries books, children’s toys, cards, gift wrap… the list is endless. There is even a small deli section offering gourmet jams, pickles and other delicious treats.
Refreshments are next door in the Potting Shed restaurant. Whether you need somewhere to have a coffee with your friends, or celebrate an occasion over a delicious home cooked meal, the potting shed restaurant has something for everyone. The restaurant has its own special ambiance and is filled with historical artifacts and quirky decor. Delicious home-cooked food and gorgeous cakes are served every day.
The restaurant and gift shop complement each other well particularly in poor weather when together they become a magnet for many ladies.
Tip: Bring a loved one to our restaurant and get a clue to what they like as they pass!
