Located at the top of the garden, right by the entrance, the café serves tempting treats and hot and cold meals throughout the day with indoor and outdoor seating.
The licensed café offers brunch between 10am and 12 noon, as well as light meals, one pots and hot snacks (vegan and vegetarian choices are available). This is where you'll find our full menu which is served from 12 noon - 2.30pm, with food delivered to your table. Last orders are taken 15 minutes before closing.
For younger visitors, we have hot meals and a children's pick 'n' mix selection. Lighter snacks made with seasonal produce are also on offer and you can rely on a deliciously tempting array of cakes and ice creams.
Environmentally friendly products
We're using reusable takeaway cups and a range of disposables which are plant-based, low-carbon products made from renewable and recycled material. These items are fully compostable.
