Tasty treats

Your day wouldn't be complete without treating yourself to one of our delicious cream teas. If scones don't excite your taste buds or you're after something different, then try one of our delicious cakes instead. All baked on-site by our fabulous pastry chef, Amy, you won't be disappointed.

Scone of the month

For November, our scone of the month is orange and cranberry . We've plenty of other flavours too.  Last year, we sold over 36,000 scones and we're passionate as ever about baking more.

The amazing vegetables grown by volunteers at Scotney Castle

The amazing vegetables grown by volunteers at Scotney Castle

We are passionate about fresh, seasonal, local produce here at Scotney which is why we use as much from our walled garden as possible. With zero food miles you can’t get more local than that. Sometimes we don’t need it all so for a small donation you can take some home too, just pop into our walled garden to see what's on offer. Why not pick up a recipe for one of our delicious dishes in our tearoom, such as our scone of the month, to try at home.

Local produce
