Restaurants

As well as our garden centres we’ve also got three award-winning restaurants and an award-winning Farm Shop.

Superb seasonal dishes are created in The Apple Tree Restaurant at Brimsmore using the Apple Tree Farm Shop as a larder. Local cheeses, meat and salads on a daily-changing blackboard are served all in a warm and relaxed atmosphere overlooking the Garden Centre. Chef’s menu at The Engine Room Restaurant at Poundbury Gardens is full of delicious seasonal food including superb traditional Sunday Roasts and special themed evening menus for private functions, served in the light and spacious converted, old-brick barn that previously housed farm machinery and engines. Take in the atmosphere of the old fruit store in the Walled Garden Restaurant at Castle Gardens or eat outside in the courtyard, surrounded by specimen trees, topiary, water features and garden sculptures.

At The Gardens Group we take pride in the fact that we source the ingredients in our restaurants and products for the farm shop as locally as we possible can. This means that your food has travelled fewer miles, and comes fresh from trusted food producers who we have long term relationships with. We wholeheartedly believe in supporting our local economy in this way, and gives us a wonderfully low carbon footprint too. Last but not least, our local artisan food producers are passionate about delivering the best flavour and quality, so many of them make food the good old fashioned way, delivering a taste that tells a story.
