QUALITY OF FOOD
We tasted two of the main meals, the gammon being the first. It was
carved off a large joint in front of our eyes and tasted delicious.
Of the accompanying vegetables only the carrots were good. The
French beans were too squeaky to be edible and the flavoured mash
was watery. The second main meal we had was the minced beef pie
which was OK although nothing special.
DECOR AND SEATING
The cafe at Van Hage, Peterborough is set off the main garden centre
and is very spacious. The decorations are very modern and pleasant
and the whole area looks clean and well-kept. Tables and chairs are
real wood which is good. Lots of offset areas in the main cafe break
up the monotony of this large cafe.
Next to the main cafe is a coffee shop called the Himalayan bar with
its own serving points and lots of comfy seats.
Food is self-service with the main meals on display being served for
you. The queues are short even at peak times.
