Have been here many times and it is my mums favourite place to eat. The food is always very good and reasonably priced. But the real star is now the gardens. They are magnificent, from the ornamental ponds by the restaurant where you can sit...More

Been here many times before for tea and cake. Decided to try it for lunch by the lovely picturesque pond. Happily they allow dogs outside and in the conservatory. The food however, was mediocre. The soup was home-made but watery and the cheesy mushroom dish...More

What else can one say? The grounds are delightful and the farm shop is to die for, as food quality is very high (and so prices are not cheap).

It makes a pleasant jaunt to visit this fascinating place. The staff are always helpful, and their buckets of coffee very satisfying. The menu is fairly basic, but offers a good variety, as is the selection of cakes. Not only is the restaurant good, but...More

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.
