From our kitchen garden to your plate

The kitchen garden has been at Ham since the mid-1650s and is currently one of the most productive walled kitchen gardens in London. It provides our café with produce all year round, from pumpkins to peppers, and raspberries to red currants. We display a yellow trowel on our menu boards to let you know which dishes contain our home-grown fruit and veg.
