The Garden Café, managed by our talented chef Sorrel Ferguson, is the perfect retreat from the buzz of the outside world. You might find us outside in our very own kitchen garden picking fresh herbs for our salads or pulling some rainbow chard from the earth...
Relax in the knot garden whilst indulging in a delicious seasonal lunch or a slice of divine cake baked in our galley kitchen that morning.
Our vegetarian (and often vegan) lunch menu is served from 12-3pm and changes daily according to what is in season or is ready from our veg patch. Barista style coffee and garden inspired cakes are served from 10.30am-5pm (4pm on Saturday & Sunday) by our friendly team.
We even sell whole cakes to take away which makes a perfect centrepiece to a dinner party or a celebration in the office. Please phone us to make an order which will be ready in 24 hours.
At the weekend we will be offering a slightly reduced but equally tempting menu, with an emphasis on our delicious cakes. On Sundays we have an afternoon tea menu all day.
We will always have our freshly baked seasonal tarts, piles of fabulous salads and soup.
There cannot be a prettier outside table in Central London
