Tatton offers an exclusive dining experience in the beautiful setting of its famous award winning gardens. The former head Gardener’s Cottage, just inside the Stableyard, is the perfect location for a relaxing specialty coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. Full of cosy, cottage character you’ll have the option to be served inside or out (weather permitting) with views of the garden’s beautiful orchard and walled gardens.

Reflecting the seasonal garden harvest, the menu includes traditional lunch and afternoon tea favourites. The Cottage uses the garden produce available right on their doorstep to create truly unique dishes. Treat yourselves in one of the most beautiful settings in Cheshire.
