Description
Set within the heart of Holme for Gardens, the Orchard is a light and airy destination with wonderful views across the Purbeck Hills. Light refreshments including coffee, tea, hot chocolate and our Holme-made cakes and scones are served all day. Don’t miss our delicious Dorset Cream Tea.Supporting our local suppliers is important to us and our lunch menu showcases just some of the fantastic produce available to us in Dorset. The “specials board” changes regularly to reflect the seasons and our locally sourced ingredients. Much of our fruit and vegetables are grown right here at Holme . We have a wide range of soft drinks including locally pressed apple juice, elderflower pressé, mineral water from the Somerset hills as well as a refreshing, classic Coca Cola.We're licensed too, so why not enjoy a glass of locally brewed beer, Dorset cider or a crisp white wine from the vineyards situated in the Dorset hills.The Orchard’s terrace area and pond side seating is perfect for al fresco dining. A tranquil spot to relax-a-while over lunch, surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.
