The Gardens

Our cafe menu offers a country fare of dishes with daily specials.

Our cafe shire tea and Middle Earth Breakfasts’ are local favourites.  A variety of platters matched with a glass of award-winning wine or one of our personally selected craft beers. High teas for special occasions and a café menu for everything in between.

Ask us about a buffet style menu for larger gatherings, our chefs truly shine here and always get great comments!

For a bite to eat in a hurry, our fresh cabinet offers an “often-changing” array of savoury and sweet treats.
