Our Tearoom & Garden

The Peaceful Oasis

Set behind the cottage and overlooking Chine Hollow, our garden has been described by our customers as 'an oasis of tranquillity'.

There are two patio areas and our lovely indoor garden room for those days when the sunshine is being rationed!

Our menu offers homemade fayre and everything is made freshly to order from a wide range of local produce including fabulous locally caught crab.

A visit to the garden would not be complete without sampling one of our speciality cream teas, made with freshly baked homemade scones, a generous helping of clotted cream and our own homemade jam with fresh strawberries on the side.

We also offer a range of locally brewed bottled ales and stouts, a selection of spirits and wines and Derick is pleased to offer a small group of selected single malt whiskies from his personal collection.

We are also delighted to offer quality island produce. A firm favourite with our customers is the crab caught and preparerd by the fisherman of Bembridge. Our friends at Goddards Brewery in Ryde deliver to us a range of tasty ales, ideal for all tastes and perfectly suits our ploughman lunches. The team at Adgestone vineyard in Brading are passionate about what they do and hav created a refershing dry white, rose and medium body red ideal for lazy afternoons in the garden. You can also visit the vineyard where they use the oldest vine in Britain on the slopes overlooking the Brading Roman Villa.

We are very happy to cater for parties but would appreciate prior notice of any groups of ten or more - simply call us or e-mail us.
