The Parson’s Nose licensed café is the only major building on site not constructed by the Sarah family. Built in the style of a Cornish cottage, the sagging roof caused much consternation for the building inspector involved in approving the structure. Visitors still look at the building commenting on the “crooked roof-line” usually making for some interesting conversations with enthusiasts and construction specialists.
The garden café is a delightful venue providing tasty light refreshments, being particularly known for our famous home-baked scones and giving authenticity to the original display of buildings and gardens from Great Britain.
For the warmer months and the many spectacular spring and autumn days, there are two very pleasant outdoor eating areas adjacent to the café where visitors are often found relaxing over their lunch and taking in the ambience of the surrounding gardens.
Whilst catering primarily to the many individual visitors in the display, the Parson’s Nose café also offers groups a well-earned break, serving either morning or afternoon tea or a scrumptious lunch. A dedicated marquee has been established where groups can dine in comfort and privacy. Menus and bookings for groups can be made on request.
Attached to The Parson’s Nose is the Rose Room indoor display.
