Basingstoke, United Kingdom
Have been stopping for coffee and a cake Braxton Gardens for some years and seen it go downhill until we almost gave up visiting. Thank goodness we didnt. Having been refused a hot pannini from the menu at 2.10pm in the hopeless restaurant at Everton garden centre because they didnt serve hot food after 2.00pm we decided to try Braxton one last time as it was nearby.
What a nice surprise.
The gardens are now fabulous and the new owners delightful. Now apparently open all year round with a large enclosed conservatory style area and an imminent woodburning stove Braxton is now an ideal place to stop for a snack in lovely surroundings at anytime of the year.
Even our big dog was made very welcome with a bowl of water and a couple of dog biscuits so he didnt have to stay in a the car
Thankyou Braxton, the brie cranberry and rocket sandwiches were lovely.
