Breakfast With The Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centres

Breakfast With The Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centres [Ad-Review]

With Mini broken up for the school holidays, we were excited to be invited along to have Breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centres. We were up early on Sunday and travelled to Moreton Park for the event, arriving hungry and ready for breakfast.

We had pre-ordered our food so that hopefully there wouldn’t be too much of a wait when we arrived. There was a good choice of food options, from a full English to smaller options like croissants and bacon sandwiches. I had chosen the full English, and Mr Mack went for the vegetarian full English. I had ordered Mini the children’s cooked breakfast.

When we arrived, we were shown through into the restaurant. The rest of the garden centre didn’t open until 10.30am, whereas breakfast with the Easter Bunny starts at 9.30am. This was a lovely idea as it meant there wasn’t any noise from other shoppers and it had a lovely intimate feel to it.

We were kindly shown to our table, which had been decorated with lovely bright Easter colours. Mini was very impressed that her place had a special gift waiting for her. She had a chocolate chick, along with icing pens and sprinkles to decorate. The tag had also been written to her from the Easter Bunny.

Our host, Alice welcomed all of the guests to the event and made us all feel at home and excited to meet the Easter Bunny. Our orders were taken for hot drinks and our food arrived within a few minutes. The breakfasts were delicious, not at all greasy as a full English can sometimes be. Mr Mack was impressed with his vegetarian breakfast, with a special mention going to the leek and cheese sausage. It didn’t take Mini long to clear her plate and she declared that it was “extra tasty.”

The service was attentive and quick, we were well looked after and asked if we’d like to order any further hot drinks.

Once all of the guests had eaten, Alice announced that the Easter Bunny was on his way. The children were delighted to see him appear at the window and make his way into the restaurant. Each child was welcomed to visit the Easter Bunny to chose a soft toy from his basket. Mini is a huge fan of soft, cuddly toys, so was very happy to pick a soft bunny from the basket. The Easter Bunny was happy to pose for plenty of pictures.

I loved how the whole event felt laid back and relaxed, it wasn’t rushed at all. Some children may be uneasy going up to costumed characters, however the Easter Bunny took time to make sure all the children felt comfortable and was happy to pose for family pictures too.

When all of the children had received their gifts, Alice and the Easter Bunny led the children on a trail around the garden centre, on the hunt for 5 hidden eggs. The children, and the adults too, had to decipher the clues to work out where the eggs had been cleverly hidden amongst the shop displays. It was great fun and lovely to see everyone joining in with the fun together.

The children had to collect a stamp at each egg location to complete their trail. Once we had completed the hunt, everybody headed back to the restaurant area where the Easter Bunny rewarded each children with a goody bag for finding all the stamps.

The event wasn’t rushed at all and we weren’t under any pressure to leave the restaurant area after the event had finished. I thought that the event had been extremely well organised and put together with lots of care and attention to detail. Breakfast with the Easter Bunny was a fantastic event, Mini marvelled in the magic and we all created special family memories to treasure.

I recently wrote about gift alternatives for Easter rather than chocolate eggs. I think that a family breakfast with the Easter Bunny would also make a great alternative. Yes, there was some chocolate involved, but the event was more than that, it was a chance to spend special family time together. Mini has been telling everyone she meets about her breakfast with the Easter Bunny over the last few days, those magical memories are so much more precious than simply receiving a chocolate egg.

Tickets for Breakfast with the Easter Bunny are £10.95 for children, which includes food, the chocolate chick to decorate, the soft toy and the goody bag with chocolate eggs. Adults tickets are £5.00 for the lighter food option or £8.50 for the full English. I think this represents amazing value for money and would highly recommend Breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Wyevale for any family wanting to enjoy a special Easter treat together.

Breakfast with the Easter Bunny is running at over 70 Wyevale Gardens centres nationally so there should be a location suitable for most people to access. For the full list of centres and to book your tickets click here. The events run until 28th April.

The event also runs later in the afternoon with either a hot lunch or picnic box available for children, and afternoon tea for the grown ups.

    Aww what a fun idea for children! We never go out for breakfast, but in reality I think that would be the best meal of the day with young children in tow – we must visit our local Wyevale Garden Centre 🙂

      We love going out for breakfast, although getting out the house in time is sometimes a challenge!

    What a fun idea for children at Easter! I wish places around here did this.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I’m not sure that my daughter would be too keen on the big rabbit though x

      He was great and kept his distance for the little ones that were unsure and Alice our host passed on the toys to the children, I thought it was really well done.

    What a lovely event. I have seen some garden centre’s do breakfast with Santa, but I am loving this Easter themed one. It looks fab!

      It was delicious, clean plates all round.

    Oh, what a fun thing to do! I like the way of doing the trail – that way all kids get the same amount of eggs at the end.

      It was lovely that they all did the trail together and worked as a team rather than all running to get them on their own.
