Eat & Shop

The Riverhill Cafe

Build up an appetite whilst exploring the gardens and then call in for a delicious light-lunch or tea in our café, offering a range of homemade and locally-sourced food and drink. Seasonal produce is used wherever possible.

For children we offer our 'Yeti Feast Bags' - a personalised lunch bag full of yummy food but without any 'junk'.  Who could resist the chocolate toes on our exclusive Yeti Foot biscuits? Rest assured that everything in the bag is either organic, homemade or locally sourced.  At Riverhill we believe that everyone should be served high quality yummy food... Nothing is too good for our younger visitors.

Allergies and Dietary Requirements
We aim to accomodate all allergies and dietary requirements and welcome feedback from our visitors. We currently offer gluten free cake and soups. All our ice creams are 'egg free'. Please contact us ahead of your visit if you have any queries.

There is no admission charge for visitors just visiting The Riverhill Café or stocking up from the shop. Enjoy morning coffee or lunch with friends and take in the gorgeous surrounding scenery. Simply return to the ticket office, if you'd like to extend your visit with a walk around the gardens.

Bookings, table reservations or Gift Vouchers call: 01732 459777
Please note that we do not take bookings for private events or Afternoon Tea in the cafe on Bank Holiday Sundays or Mondays.

The Riverhill Shop and Plant Sales

Our small gift shop sells beautiful and exclusive gifts which highlight different aspects of Riverhill.

After gaining so much inspiration from the gardens, don't forget to stock up on plants from our plant stall.


We welcome picnics anywhere in the gardens. You will find lots of benches or alternatively bring a rug and find a shady spot to enjoy your lunch or tea. Please remember to take any litter away with you so that we can keep Riverhill looking fantastic.
