Scampston Garden Café  

The fresh and contemporary Garden Café overlooks the walled garden and is the perfect setting to enjoy a light lunch or a cream tea during a visit to our gardens and grounds. Our menu offers a delicious range of hot and cold lunches, such as sandwiches, soups, salads and paninis along with daily specials using local produce and seasonal ingredients grown in our garden.

We pride ourselves on offering homemade and homely food with a very friendly service. With both seating inside and outside along the terrace available, the café can be enjoyed in all weathers. The Garden Café is fully licensed and serves prosecco, wine and beer as well as speciality teas and coffees. Our barista-trained staff serve up the finest quality, locally blended coffee from Roost Coffee in Malton as well as a selection of cold drinks to enjoy.

The café is open during our garden opening hours and access does not require a ticket to the gardens. Please be aware that at quieter times in the season (early Spring and late Autumn) the café may close early. Please check in the ticket office on arrival to avoid disappointment.

"We decided to have lunch in the cafe and so glad we did. I had a cheese jacket potato and side salad and it was very good followed this with a pot of tea and shared a slice of lemon meringue cake. At just under £20.00 well worth it for the quality of the food and service from the ladies who worked there. "
"Beautifully kept gardens - well worth a visit if you're a keen gardener, and do stop to have lunch in the restaurant. The Ploughman's Lunch was delicious!"
"We had scone jam and clotted cream with coffees in the Café - quite delicious!"
"A cuppa and the lightest sleep of scones were a welcome start to our meandering, I can highly recommend the lemon and blueberry ones."
"The cafe and small shop are excellent too and run by friendly and professional staff."
