The Apple Tree Farm Shop

BRIMSMORE GARDENS, YEOVIL

Championing growers, bakers, butchers and producers within a 25-mile radius, The Apple Tree Farm Shop stocks a carefully curated selection of food and drink. Telling a story of the local landscape and changing seasons, our farm shop bangs the drum for traditional and time-honoured techniques.

Tasting and sampling is very much encouraged, whether it’s cheese and olives at the deli counter or breads and oils displayed on the shelves. All dietary requirements are considered with a wide range of gluten and dairy free items, as well as vegetarian produce, and the knowledgeable team are always on hand to offer advice and tell the story behind the brand.

The Apple Tree Restaurant

BRIMSMORE GARDENS, YEOVIL

Taking inspiration from the changing seasons out on the rolling Somerset hills that surround Brimsmore Gardens, The Apple Tree Restaurant serves up homemade classics every day using the farm shop as its larder. With traditional breakfasts, wholesome lunches, Sunday roasts and quintessentially British afternoon teas on the daily changing menu, our multi award-winning restaurant caters for all dietary requirements.

The Engine Room

POUNDBURY GARDENS, POUNDBURY

Spacious yet cosy, The Engine Room is set in a converted brick barn that once housed farm machinery and engines, making it the ideal spot to meet friends and family in the centre of Poundbury.

As well as its comprehensive breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea menus with local and seasonal produce at their core, The Engine Room Restaurant also caters for private functions.

The Walled Garden

CASTLE GARDENS, SHERBORNE

Hearty English breakfasts, seasonal dishes and homemade cakes, pastries and puddings are among the traditional fare on offer on The Walled Garden Restaurant’s daily changing menu. Set in an old fruit store, The Walled Garden is a space to unwind, catch up and spend time with family and friends throughout the year.
