The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall in the United Kingdom, including the world's largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed clay pit.
The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.
"We were staying for a weekend at a caravan park 3 miles away and decided to try hoops inn for for our first nights evening meal. We opted for the "early bird" menu (2 courses for £10). We all had the prawn cocktail to start. very generous portions. Then my husband and I had the scampi and my daughter the lasagne. All very nice. The staff were very friendly and attentive. we enjoyed it so much that we went back for our 2nd night and chose from the bar menu this time. I had the mussels which were absolutely gorgeous. No desserts as main courses were filling. We were going to try somewhere else for our last night but there was a couple of desserts we wanted to try so we went back to Hoops instead. This time my husband and i shared the fish platter for our main course and for our dessert he had a knickerbocker glory and i had the star anise brulee. Very nice. There was plenty of choices on the children's menu for my daughter. All in all we really enjoyed our 3 evening meals there. The staff each night were very friendly. We will return next time we are in North Devon." Oct 2012
