A bit disappointed with my first visit and I was expecting to be wow after hearing about this place, the outside garden centre was very messy and untidy 😕

First visit and a very interesting one compared to other gardening centres in and around Leicestershire, not many gardening products to choose from and it was also a bit messy. Inside the shop things were better a little more organised and tidy and you get get around quite easily, the staff were friendly.

Called in for compost and a few other things, found the staff very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Please be sure to visit.
We must support our local businesses.

Not that big a selection of outdoor plants but that could have been the time of year.
I asked about a lawn edging product which they didn't have in so they offered to order one in. It felt like great customer service.
It's quite expensive but their indoor plant selection was great and was really quirkily arranged!
I'd go back and try again in the summer months to see if their outdoor selection improves.
We also had a coffee but that was nothing to write home about.

A massive thank you to all at the cafe for producing a wonderful birthday afternoon tea for my daughter. Due to COVID, I ordered over the phone to collect on the sunday afternoon. From ordering right through to collection was an absolute pleasure, everyone I spoke to was so polite which is a bit of a novelty in a lot of places these days. The afternoon tea was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. Thank you so much to all of you at the langtons who made this so special, I can't wait to visit again. Thank you!!
Lovely visit , the food was fantastic and the service very friendly, nice to be able to bring the dog and not feel unwelcome especially in the cafe. We will be back many times in the future I’m sure, also a great variety off good quality things for sale inside and outside items as well as an amazing Xmas arrangement! Loved it
We attended this 2 sitting event , social distancing observed

Strange just read the reviews don’t completely understand them, I booked afternoon tea for myself and my wife I’m not an afternoon tea person but as it’s her birthday this week I thought I would give it a go absolutely delighted the quality and the quantity was fantastic and the sandwiches were two sorts tuna and a cheese one. I personally do not like tuna so I had the cheese one which sounds a little sad and if you would’ve asked me beforehand did I want cheese I would have said no, but it was fantastic it was camembert with a Cranberry sauce it was delicious as for the rest of the food if this is what afternoon tea is about Count me in delighted the staff were great very friendly Especially in a very strange situation with the virus protection to cap it all it was the 50% off but saying that we will be going back again and pay in the normal price

Plenty of space to park, loads of pots and plants and easy to keep 2m apart from everyone. I didn't try the food this time but I will next time, it looked great.

I visit here regularly to lunch with friends and it rarely disappoints.
Would be good if it varied it’s menu more regularly- I used to enjoy the choice on the previous menu more than current one . Only strange thing is they offer a loyalty card buy 9 or 10 hot drinks and get the next one free, but the card only gets marked for the first hot drink. So if like us you have a couple of coffees each with lunch they only count as one coffee. Similarly my friend was entitled to her free drink but on paying for the second drink was informed that it didn’t count on her card as only one hot drink per visit. Also your card is only valid for your drink and cannot be used for someone else’s.

We had an afternoon appointment in the area so popped in here for a light lunch.
The young staff are very professional and take you to a table. It was quite busy for a Friday. We chose Soup and sandwiches from a generous menu. Our soup was very good and hot - our Beef sandwiches were lovely and we shared a Side bowl of nice chips. Topped off with a pot of Tea for 2.
The tea was brought out very quickly and finished long before the main meal arrived. I think Cafes do this to elevate the long wait but Im not keen. However, the waiter did top up our teapot so we topped up our cups! Nice one.For such a large establishment there are only two unisex toilets with baby changing facilities. If a Mum, a baby and a toddler visit they could be in there for half an hour.
I highly recommend this Cafe. Pleasant Staff, surroundings and food very good quality.Lots to see and buy, good parking too.

Beautiful place, had lunch with my son for the first time. Had sausage, chips and peas for my 17month old and a chicken & cherizo salad for myself. Great food, great atmosphere and clean facilities.
