Seasonal vegetables picked fresh from our walled garden

Berrington has a very productive walled garden even in winter which is lovingly cared for by our volunteer gardening team. We always try to supply the tea-room with nearly all of its seasonal fruit, vegetables and salad requests so that you can enjoy something fresh from the garden each time you visit
