Garden Picnic Baskets

Using seasonal ingredients from the Gardens, our chef will freshly prepare your picnic lunch for two. All of our salads are grown to organic principles by the garden team. Freshly picked by Mervyn in the morning and taken straight to Teena in the castle kitchen, our salad is as fresh as it gets. Also included are our famous freshly made cakes, apple juice from the orchard, and savoury bread or scones.

You can also order a selection of delicious whole 9 inch round cakes to collect from the Gallery.

Picnics and cakes are available each Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the Open Season (until 31 October 2021) and must be ordered and pre-paid.
