Great fresh food served seven days a week

Arthurs restaurant is located at The Gardener's Garden Centre at Rushmore Hill and has tripled in size since it was built in 1997. The restaurant is situated in a relaxing picturesque garden setting covering nearly one acre.

Inside Arthurs you can enjoy dining in either the traditional Kentish Barn setting evoked by the extensive use of green oak in its design, or the beautiful light and airy Orangery which overlooks the garden itself. Outside, Arthurs boasts two outside eating areas, one with views overlooking the millions of plants in the Garden Centre and the other of Arthurs Garden itself.

From our Kitchen we cook up surprising dishes influenced by current trends, but you can always expect familiar home comforts. We believe the key to great tasting food is using the best seasonal and responsibly-sourced British ingredients.

A typical English breakfast is served from 9am until 11.30am each day including Sundays with an alternative for vegetarians, or you may fancy poached Hens Eggs on Toast, a Breakfast Buttie or even some delicious French Toast with Berry Compote and low fat Greek Yoghurt.

At Lunchtime, you can enjoy a selection of fresh loaf Sandwiches, baked Spuds, Beer Battered Cod with Chips, Mushy Peas and Arthurs Tartare Sauce, hand carved honey baked Ham with fried Hens Eggs, Chips and Arthurs salad or Cumberland Sausages with ‘Spring Bubble’ and Onion Gravy, and much more including, our popular Ploughman’s or Mezze Planks. We also have a selection of daily specials, with many homemade recipes to entice your taste buds.

On the lighter side there is a selection of delicious salads and locally made Quiches served with Chutneys & Relishes, New Potatoes & Arthurs Salad.

To satisfy a sweet tooth, customers can choose from freshly baked Cakes, Scones, Tarts and Savouries made in house daily by our passionate bakers. Jennifer, our head baker, has dedicated her life to baking and brings a European flavour to the sweet treats in our cake counter.
