Welcome to Stanway Garden Centre and restaurant, proud to be a part of the British Garden Centres family. Charles, Robert, Phillippa and the team look forward to seeing you soon.

Stanway garden centre and restaurant was originally a rose nursery growing an amazing 300,000 roses each year. We've been selling plants since 1975 and today in our centre you will find a great selection of plants, garden care and expert advice! We are pleased to offer our Gardener's Retreat Restaurant which serves hearty breakfasts, snacks, main meals and sweet treats.
