The Garden Café

The Garden Café offers a friendly, welcoming place to relax within the tranquillity of our award-winning gardens. We offer fresh home-made lunches from locally sourced food, and Fair trade barista coffees. We are open Monday-Friday 10:00am – 3.00pm (not bank holidays and the occasional training day)


13 May: The Garden Café will reopen indoors from Thursday 20th May. As before, there will be social distancing, and safety measures in place (mask-wearing, hand sanitising stations, reduced numbers/hours, etc.).

Regular opening:

With free wifi and an enclosed garden, the café is the perfect space to work on an assignment, have a relaxed business meeting, catch up with friends, or bring young children.

The café provides people with mental health problems an opportunity to learn catering and customer service skills, gain insight into their strengths and get work experience.
