Did you know that many of the dishes served in the Courtyard Café include ingredients grown in the Kitchen Garden?
Visit in late spring to sample rhubarb recipes including rhubarb chutney and rhubarb & orange tart. In summer, we've salads made from the lettuce, beetroot and tomatoes that Mark has freshly harvested. Don't miss our autumnal warming vegetable soups and scrumptious cakes using home grown blackberries, strawberries and blackcurrants.
