Contemporary, Fragrant and 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!

OPEN EVERY DAY (EXCEPT TUESDAY) FROM 10 AM TO 5 PM – offering lunch with table service, picnics & outside seating

 Bistro Dining, Picnic or Coffee & Cake – the Choice is Yours!

The Scented Botanist team is now serving a full lunch menu with table service in our extended, spacious and relaxed Bistro.  We also offer a range of hot and cold drinks, homemade cakes, and our latest addition – tasty picnics made with local ingredients to eat in our Café Garden.  For those with garden entry tickets, our picnics can also be enjoyed on the estate.  Just bring a rug, and rely on us to provide delicious food, a lovely location, and some secluded picnic spots!

To keep things simple, we are encouraging pre-orders for our picnic menu shown below. Simply order online by clicking the button below.

We strongly recommend booking for inside dining by calling 01258 786022. 

*Please note that only food bought on the premises may be eaten on site.

Garden Inspiration

Our chefs take their inspiration from the gardens – many of the ingredients integral to our dishes are produced on the estate – from fruit, flowers, leaves and herbs to honey and cordials.

Beyond that we’re dedicated to finding the finest quality fresh ingredients that we can source from local suppliers, because we believe our customers will taste the difference.

Available for Hire

The Scented Botanist is available to hire for private or corporate events, and is a wonderful, relaxed and memorable venue for celebrations and special occasions.

We can cater for everything from drinks and canapé receptions, to a full dining experience, with menus tailored to your requirements.
