The Garden Restaurant & Coffee Shop at Swarkestone Nursery has scooped the Derby Telegraph Café of the Year award 2012

Breakfast:

Our take on the ‘English Breakfast’ is a great way to start the day – served from 9am – 1130am daily. We offer lighter options, see our menu for all our choices!

Lunch:

Served from 12pm – 230pm our hot meals are a great alternative to cooking for yourself. We have a wide variety of sandwiches, panini’s, and baguettes – all made on site fresh for you. Every day we offer three cooked meal options, typically one or two meat dishes with a delicious vegetarian option. On Thursdays and Sundays we prepare a classic carvery with two meats and all the trimmings. We serve smaller portions of our main meals to quench a smaller appetite. See our menu.

Kids:

The Little Gardener’s Pick and Mix is our children’s lunch box, choose from a wide variety of sandwiches and snacks to keep your little one’s contented. For something a bit more substantial, our smaller portions of main meals have proved very popular with the younger generations.

Bakery:  

All our cakes and desserts are baked in house with recipes approved (and protected) by our in house bakers. We have all the classics: scones (for cream tea), millionaires shortbread, roulade – as well as a few more modern bakes like an amazing Caribbean cake or rocky road. Our selection changes daily, so come in and check it out - everything deserves a taste! We have a selection of cakes that are baked to be gluten free, any queries ask our staff!

Hot Drinks:

Italian barista style coffee served with a Lotus Biscoff to compliment. Serving all the classics to your taste, we have a comprehensive (but uncomplicated) hot drinks menu to sit and enjoy or take with you on your tour of our centre.
