Contemporary, Fragrant & Delicious

At The Scented Botanist, our contemporary bistro-café, we strive not only to bring you great quality food in a beautiful, relaxed environment, but also to create menus which are adventurous, inspiring and wonderfully fragrant!

Many of the ingredients integral to our dishes are produced on the estate or locally sourced, because we believe you’ll taste the difference.

The Scented Botanist is licensed and serves a range of fine wines and beers as well as freshly brewed teas and coffees. Reserving a table is strongly recommended.

The Ultimate Afternoon Tea

The ultimate, indulgent and wonderfully fragrant Scented Botanist Afternoon Tea! Designed by our own adventurously creative Head Chef Jenny, the Afternoon Tea has at its heart the gardens and estate of Keyneston Mill. From salted caramel, orange blossom and lemon macaroons inspired by the Citrus Grove, or scones, cream and preserves inspired by The Lost Orchard, to chocolate, nutmeg and ginger mousse with chocolate and cinnamon soil inspired by The Spice Garden, our Afternoon Tea is utterly unique and absolutely delicious.

Perfect as a very special Mothers Day treat – for all of the very special Mums out there! – or for any special occasion.

This is a wonderful experience and we ask that you book at least one week in advance. To reserve, please purchase the tea here online and then call us on 01258 456831 to confirm your preferred date and time. Alternatively, please call us first to reserve your table.
