All of the food was very tasty. And beautifully presented. Evan the side salad was made up of 5 different types of veggie salads.

And then there is the cafe; a bright, cheery space where you can have coffee, a whole meal or anything in between. The soups (I have only had soup and cake, so far) are rich, delicate and satisfying, presented with brown bread and butter. A kitchen garden supplies herbs, veggies and flowers, which decorate and enliven each dish. Seeing the abundant cake counter, I was lost. I've tried several, most recently, a lush lemon cheesecake that made my eyes close. The carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is splendid. I haven't had the vegan brownie yet, but you bet I will. Bring your sweetheart, your children, your sketchbook, your daydreams and spend the day resting in Nature's hand. I'll save you some cake.

The café, a light-filled spacious conservatory overlooking the garden has a an inspiring lunch menu of superbly presented delicious and healthy dishes, with a variety homemade cakes for those of us with weak resolve. A much higher standard of culinary skill here than you might normally expect to find in similar visitor attractions elsewhere.
