The Garden Café

We would like to inform our customers that, as part of the control measures relating to the Covid-19 epidemic, we have now made all our venues cashless as the World Health Organisation has confirmed that bacteria can live and be spread on notes. Only card payments will be accepted.

A café that cares.  Serving up delicious homegrown food at Stockwood Discovery Centre.

Here at the Garden café we take pride in serving up classic dishes and light bites using the finest ingredients from local suppliers, as well fresh produce grown here in our own gardens. 

Our hard-working gardeners grow Victorian heritage vegetables, directly inspired by Stockwood’s history, including Golden Sunrise Tomatoes, Crystal Lemon Cucumbers, Golden Ball Turnips and Bedford Fillbasket Brussel Sprouts! Absolutely delicious, even the sprouts… seriously!

But we’re also looking to the future too. We’ve designed our very own app, making food ordering even simpler and quicker. Just search The Garden Café via your chosen app store and get ordering!

We also do have Halal options available – however we are not a Halal venue. Please speak to a member of our café staff for more details.

Key Information

Our Pledge

We care about our staff, our customers and our environment. We’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint by eliminating packaging and plastics wherever possible, recycling widely, composting as much as we can (even down to our coffee grounds!) and sourcing ethical products.

Our Suppliers

We support local growers and producers by buying locally wherever we can. But we don’t stop there; we actively seek out suppliers who mirror our values, ethical, environmentally friendly and nutritionally sound. Our meat is supplied by Woburn Country Foods, our bread is freshly baked by Prudens in Markyate and we get our milk from Eggington Dairies in Leighton Buzzard.
