The licenced Café at Darsham Nurseries has been widely praised in national press as a great place to eat with a casual, social atmosphere in a light, airy dining room with a small outdoor terrace.
Throughout the year the cafe grows its own range of vegetables, fruit and herbs directly outside and in the 'potager', or kitchen garden. Customers are welcome to walk through the gardens to see where many of the menu ingredients are grown.
The menu takes a modern approach to fresh, veg-led dishes with Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern influences. You are encouraged to order a few dishes each and share. Meat and fish are provided by local vendors. The menu changes to reflect seasonal availability.
