Time for tea in the garden

Time for Tea!

Our Cafe is open fully from May until the end of September 10.30am-4.30pm (last orders 4pm) selling hot and cold drinks, light lunches and delicious cakes. In April and October we offer a “pop-up” cafe serving a selection of hot and cold drinks and homemade cakes. Please note that the cafe may close early during spells of bad weather.

Tables and chairs will be provided in the Orchard and in the Tithe Barn

We will be continuing with the following measures in the cafe:

  • Hand sanitisers are in place in the café and outside the toilets
  • Rigorous cleaning will remain in place

We politely ask that you follow these measures to ensure the safety of our staff and our visitors, particularly those who are vulnerable or nervous at this time.

Please do not take food or drink into the Garden.

Bourton House Garden Tea Room is run by Carolyn Coleman, Country House Cooking.
