GFC member review: Langton Greenhouse & Garden Centre
By GFC member Sarah Tattersall
Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre near Market Harborough is run by husband and wife, Tom and DJ Byrne. Comprising a café, farm shop, garden centre, gift shop and stone company, The Langton Greenhouse has a little bit of something for everyone.
Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon tea treat, The Greenhouse Café offers plenty of home-cooked comforts and family favourites, successfully brought together in an extensive menu that includes fresh sandwiches, antipasti platters and a mouthwatering steak, Stilton and caramelised onion ciabatta. The daily specials board also boasts enticing soups, savoury tarts and vegan-friendly salad bowls. What’s more, the renowned homemade cakes can always be relied upon to satisfy or indulge your appetite.
Complete with mismatched furniture, a children’s play area and water bowls for furry four-legged friends, the ethos here is about catering for families and friends in a comfortable, honest and unpretentious environment.
In addition to the temptations offered by The Greenhouse Café, Langton Farm Shop is home to plenty of locally and nationally sourced produce. From fresh fruit and veg, ales to chutneys and ice cream to locally distilled gin, this shop celebrates a host of quality producers all under one, rather large, greenhouse roof. A bespoke hamper service is also available, providing the perfect present solution for any occasion.
Situated just outside Market Harborough and with plentiful parking, The Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre is a convenient foodie favourite for any day of the week.
