Gordon’s Bistro

Opened in 1988, in response to the growing number of customers at the Todmorden branch and the parking chaos that ensued, this centre has grown from strength to strength and with many extensions and alterations it’s now almost as big as the Todmorden centre with free parking for approximately 200 cars.

Located close to the town centre and just off junction 21 of the M62, our Rochdale branch is in an excellent location which is easily accessible and close to many other local amenities.

Here we stock a wide variety of products including an extensive houseplant department as well as a huge selection of outdoor plants, trees and shrubs; a full range of garden chemicals, tools and accessories; bird care; sheds, garden sculptures, stoneware, compost and landscaping materials; a floristry department offering a personal and tailored floristry service for wedding, occasion and sympathy flowers as well as cut flowers, bouquets and arrangements; silk flowers, DIY & homeware, gifts, textiles and clothing; a pets and aquatics department with tropical, cold water and marine fish as well as a selection of reptiles and of course pet supplies for all pets great and small; And when you’ve seen all that you’ll probably be glad of our on-site Bistro for a sit down and some well deserved refreshments!

Located within Gordon Rigg Garden, Home & Leisure Rochdale and opened in 2010 after the retrofitting of a full mezzanine floor above our current tills area, Gordon’s Bistro offers a friendly and relaxing atmosphere as well as an extensive food and drinks menu, with home cooked food, daily specials and also including our hugely popular Sunday Carvery.

So whether you’re interested in a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake or treating yourself with one of our delicious meals, you are sure to find something to get your mouth watering while you sit in our relaxed environment. We have various seating options including booths for intimate dining, freestanding tables for those who like to ‘people watch’ through the window or our comfy sofas and armchairs where you can unwind and have a good old natter.
