The café at Claremont Landscape Garden
Make time to stop at Claremont's café to recharge after a walk in the garden. We have lots of tempting treats on our seasonal menus - come in for warming one pot stews, hot drinks and tasty treats.
Claremont's café is designed in the style of a gardener's bothy, inspired by those who have fashioned this beautiful garden over the years. If Claremont is open, so is the café, until half an hour before we close the gate. It's outside the pay barrier, so feel free to come and enjoy the refreshments whether or not you have time to enjoy the garden.
We bake a range of dishes on-site in our kitchen and our cook comes in early every morning to make sure you always have fresh food to enjoy.
Our brunch menu is served every day until 1pm. Featuring bacon baps and toast with jam, it's just the thing to wake you up in the morning. Especially when you pair it with a cup of our fairtrade coffee.
Hot food and drinks
We serve a main meal and a selection of light lunches every day and always have vegetarian options available. Lunch runs from 11.30 until half an hour before close, and we also have a soup and hot meal option available every day from 10am.
We take great pride in our hot drinks, serving only fairtrade coffee made from the best ingredients while you wait. If coffee isn't your cup of tea, try our National Trust Everyday tea blend made specially for us by Clipper. We're also fully licensed, and we offer a variety of local ales as well as a range of wines.
Our Duke of Newcastle beef cobbler, inspired by Claremont's former owner is made on site with fresh, warming ingredients. Perfect as a warming lunch after a long walk in the garden.
Princess Charlotte's husband King Leopold is the inspiration for our chocolate layer cake, a gloriously sweet treat to be paired with a cup of tea or coffee.
These dishes often feature on our regular menu, subject to availability.
Four legged friends
Although we only allow dogs in the garden between October and April, they are allowed in the café year round, as it is separate from the garden.
We have very recently opened a new kiosk style mini café, called The Cube. It's situated by the play area, just outside our main café. Selling sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, bakes and ice creams, it's the perfect place to refuel after a walk in the garden. Parents and grandparents can treat themselves to a cup of tea or coffee whilst they watch their children let off some steam in the play area and we've got some tasty child friendly snacks and drinks too.
Bring along your laptop, tablet or smartphone and take advantage of our free wireless internet.
Be ready for whatever the weather has in store. You can stay cosy indoors with a hot drink on a cold day, or relax outside with an ice-cream on the terrace when the sun shines.
