Positives: freshly made, not dry, good quality fillings (ham & salad on white, brie and chutney on brown)
Negatives: crusts left on, could’ve done with another choice of filling (there were only two)
Positives: you only got one each but it was massive, tasted homemade, good quality
Negatives: My friend only likes plain scones so a choice would’ve been good
Chocolate brownie – Nice and gooey, filled with chunks of fudge
Eton Mess meringue – delicious, very sweet, nice cream and fresh strawberry
Bakewell slice – classic, no complaints
Macaron – sweet but not overly so
After we’d polished off most of our food the Easter bunny appeared, (after the kids had shouted his name, adding to the build up). By this point the kids were giddy with excitement! After some high fives the bunny and Stella led us round the garden centre hunting pictures of eggs and collecting stamps at each one. This led us outside into the glorious spring sunshine and was a nice little tour of the place. There were plenty of opportunities for hugs and high fives as we went, the kids were loving it! There was a wide range of kids, from the teeny tots to the almost teens and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Back in the café the kids were allowed to choose a chocolate egg for completing the hunt (this is free for any child visiting the centre over Easter – which lasts till the 27th April).
We finished our afternoon tea and were told there was one final treat in store from the Easter bunny – the children could choose a cuddly toy from an assortment of cute fluffy animals.
We headed to the soft play next to the café with 4 very happy, excited children and therefore happy adults. Wyevale Gosforth has done it again, we absolutely rate their great staff, food and child-friendliness and will be back!
We were provided with a complimentary meal for the purposes of this review, however we have paid for this experience in the past and were equally as impressed.
