Meet the team
Our Manager is David Quigley
At Rivendell we are in the process of a very exciting redevelopment. Our Kitchen restaurant has now launched and we’re excited to finish the work in the rest of the centre to finish our transformation into the place to visit for gardening inspiration, shopping and dining in the Widnes region.
We're a traditional plant centre based on the site of an old nursery. Our Planteria team have a wealth of horticultural knowledge and will always be happy to help with any gardening questions you have. We even offer soil testing, personal shopper and home delivery services.
Looking for Inspiration?
We have created a stunning plant display at our Garden centre. The Notcutts Garden is a permanent show garden which will reflect the seasons and provide inspiration for your outdoor living space whatever the weather.
It highlights both innovative and classic plant combinations and new trends in furniture and homeware to help inspire your own showstopper garden at home.

Our menu has wonderful seasonal dishes showcasing fresh flavours as well as our year round classics such as our tempting steak and chicken pies, which are great any time of year!
Why not start the day with one of our tasty gardener’s breakfast or with one of our scrumptious pastries. Or pop in for one of our deliciously indulgent cakes with a Paddy & Scotts coffee, perfect for any time of day. Our lunch service offers a range of freshly prepared main meals and specials as well as soup, jacket potatoes and sandwiches.
From 3pm we serve a range of small plates, perfect for an early dinner, and our Deluxe Afternoon Tea (please pre-book).
We love the fun, unusual facts about our centre and the local area. Here's a few...
Rivendell Garden centre was named after an Elven community from J. R. R. Tolkien's ‘Lord of the Rings’.
Ann Marie Bold in the 1800’s owned all the surrounding land, hence the name Bold Heath.
The name Widnes came from them Roman word “for the widening of the Mersey”.
