Relax in our airy conservatory, plantsman’s garden or traditional Scillonian glasshouse.

Indulge in squidgy, dark chocolate brownies, melt in the mouth meringues, gooey flapjacks and much more, all home baked by us. Take time to appreciate one of our locally renowned cream teas with scones warm from the oven served with Boddington’s strawberry conserve and Cornish clotted cream or simply come and enjoy a Moomaid ice cream.

At lunchtime there is homemade soup with our own olive oil enriched focaccia bread, our popular smoked mackerel pâté and freshly baked savoury tartlets served with seasonal salad.

Quench your thirst with a Cornish lager or glass of local wine, or just come in and see us for a pot of Clipper tea or mug of freshly ground coffee from Origin, the speciality coffee roaster.
