The Garden Café at Scampston  

Set in a contemporary and light building, the Garden Café looks out over the Walled Garden. The Cafe serves delicious light lunches and cream teas using local produce and seasonal ingredients grown in the garden here.

We pride ourselves on offering home made and homely food with a very friendly service. The menu varies day-to-day, with seasonal specials available as well as our staples such as sandwiches, paninis, and soups. 

The Garden Café is open during normal garden opening hours and access does not require a ticket to the gardens. Please be aware that at quieter times in the season (Spring and late Autumn) the cafe may close at 4pm. Please do 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."
