Dining at the Garden


Fancy a free lunch?

As well as our set dates listed below, private dates are also available throughout the year. If you can arrange a full party, we are delighted to offer the organiser a complimentary place. Any of our events can be arranged on a date to suit your group. Also the garden is a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or special occasion.
Private Party Size;    Lunch parties, minimum 8, maximum 12. Afternoon Teas, minimum 10, maximum 16.

Champagne Lunch   -   £45.95  -  from 1pm to 4pm

After enjoying a refreshing glass of Pimms, sit down to a delightful two course “summer lunch”, designed and prepared by John. Each course is accompanied by a glass of  cool crisp Champagne. This will be served on the upper terrace overlooking the garden (Weather permitting). Only fine quality ingredients are used, local when possible, served on white china, with white Irish linen table cloths and napkins. Available for parties of 8 - 12 on a date to suit you.



Vivienne Westwood Lunch  £49.95    1pm - 4:30pm


Spanning the last three decades I have gathered one of the largest collections in the world, by the queen of British fashion. Vivienne Westwood is a designer of genius, always original. After being served our classic Champagne Lunch, enjoy a presentation of some of my favourite items, including clothes, shoes, accessories and tableware. Many of the pieces come with an anecdote or humorous story to get you giggling. Please note that the collection is not kept at the house. This is a super event for a private party!



Floral Champagne Lunch  £49.95   1pm - 4:30pm

These occasions combines two of my favourite things, flowers and food. After enjoying our classic Champagne Lunch, sit back, relax and watch as I create designs inspired by our garden in summer. A great event if you are planning a private visit.



Afternoon Tea    £19.95   2pm - 4pm

Quite bad for the hips! 

After a Fruit Punch reception, a selection of sumptuous sandwiches, all with home cooked fillings, will be served. Then it is time for homemade scones served with jam, cream and strawberries, followed by a selection of naughty but nice cakes. All the above will be served with your choice of freshly brewed pots of tea or coffee. 




You are welcome to book for yourself, with a friend or for a larger party. Don't forget, if you book a full party you will receive a free place, and we can arrange a date to suit you.
