Garden Café

Café at Hospitalfield

Our new team led by Head Chef Simon Brown are looking forward to welcoming you for lunch, tea, coffee or cake. Our menu changes daily, featuring an abundance of fine local produce, freshly prepared using home grown vegetables and herbs straight from the garden. You can expect bright and lively salads, delightful lunch options, and of course fabulous cakes served with the best coffee, locally roasted in Arbroath courtesy of Sacred Grounds.

The Garden Café is a new building located in a bright and sunny spot that commands a wonderful view of the gardens. The glazed construction sits adjacent to the Fernery and was designed especially for this place by architects Caruso St John. The light filled space opens out onto a terrace so that you can choose to sit inside or outside, at our new café tables designed by artist Mick Peter and furniture makers ThreeFourFive, created in response to the historic collections at Hospitalfield.

The Café is also available for private hire outside of opening hours, please enquire at if you would like to use this special place for your event or celebration.

The Café is fully licensed.
