Hearty's Food Hall

Our Story

We have always loved to bring a hearty choice of food to our customers visiting Tong Garden Centre. When Mark and Tom first bought the garden centre in 2015, they introduced a food hall with its own butchery and bakery alongside a superb choice of favourites and wonderful local produce – from beers to biscuits, pickles, jams and jars of goodies.

It has proved so popular over the years and we all felt that 2021 was the right time to give it an official name in our family of experiences and a vibrant brand identity to go with our exciting expansion and even bigger choice of delicious produce.

Hearty’s is the result – a fresh, new look Food Hall with a tempting choice that has been lovingly made, hand-crafted and carefully selected for you. Whether it’s something tasty for tea, an everyday treat or a thoughtful gift, Hearty’s is a little bit special, it’s food with heart, it’s proper hearty!



Hearty’s Food Hall is filled with fabulous festive treats that are certain to get you in the Christmas spirit. Whether you’re treating yourself or a loved one, you’ll find a superb selection of gourmet delights including chutneys, biscuits, confectionary and so much more, along with our festive range from our Butchers and Bakers!


We know that gifting food is a wonderful way to delight others so our brand new hamper service ensures thoughtful gifts are always given, whatever the event. 

We’ve picked and packed a delightful selection of hampers for every occasion but if you are keen to create a truly unique gift, our team can help you choose a very personal selection to make someone’s day.
