Orchard Cafe

Click here to view our menu
Set within the heart of Holme for Gardens, the Orchard Cafe is a light and airy destination with wonderful views across the large landscaped pond to the Purbeck Hills.

The Orchard serves refreshments including breakfast, light lunches, 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.


Have a break from the kitchen and come and enjoy Sunday roast here at the Orchard. Booking is advisable.


The Orchard is a popular venue for functions, birthday parties and evening events. Please contact us to discuss your special occasion, be it a simple lunch through to a wedding reception. We would be delighted to help.

What people say…

You will never want to go to another garden centre again.... this one is so different, friendly and inspirational. Couldn't ask for more. What a lovely way to waste an afternoon! Our favourite place to go. Just love walking around the beautiful vast gardens, and enjoying a Dorset cream Tea overlooking the landscaped ponds. Highly Recommended. On visiting Holme Nurseries for the first time I was impressed with the variety and quality of the plants, but not only that the Orchard tea room (and the cake!) plus the local produce for sale in their shop made it a very relaxed and enjoyable visit - will definitely go again, maybe with some friends next time!

Holme Garden Centre has so much to look at, I was overwhelmed with the choice

‘ ...you have been a great help Simon, our garden is beyond our wildest dreams, with just the most amazing vista of colour and tasteful design, thank you.’
