The Conservatory Barn Café: We are supplied with the very finest quality beans by Mercanta, the coffee hunters who treat the growers as partners and manage the bean all the way from the tree to the cup. All milky coffees are served ready to drink, as we heat the milk to just the right temperature. This brings out its natural sweetness, complementing our coffee that we are so proud of, hopefully giving you the optimal coffee experience. The menu changes daily and follows the seasons. Cold items can include locally produced continental style meats, antipasta, and organic smoked salmon. Expect to be 'wowed' by the cheese ploughmans. Freshly cooked hot dishes can include ham and leek crumble, lasagne, and chicken ratatouille. Why not follow any of these with one of our many desserts which include elderflower and lime cheesecake, fruit pavlova, and plum bakewell. From our own dairy we plan to incorporate as many seasonal fruits, berries, and tastes as possible into the ice creams, sorbets, and fruit ices which can all be purchased here.
