Branklyn Garden has always been popular and is often cited as the Trust’s ‘jewel in the crown’, but until recently had never had its own tearoom.

After its introduction last year, the new tearoom at Branklyn continues to prosper and provides the perfect setting for visitors to enjoy home baking and refreshments while overlooking the colourful garden.

Freshly made scones – plain, fruit and cheese – together with the property’s already famous strawberry sponge, partnered with fine coffees and teas, have proved popular with visitors to the garden.

Following last year’s success, we took the opportunity to refurbish the tearoom. Staff and volunteers can now offer a more streamlined service, backed by fresh baking made by confectioner Alison Jermyn – multi-tasking in her role of Visitor Services Manager!

The Branklyn management team is keen to support local suppliers wherever possible, including makers of locally made jam (Heather Hills), coffee beans (the Bean Shop) and Tayside Strawberries. 

The terrace adjacent to the Arts and Crafts house lends itself perfectly for an extension to the tearoom, allowing visitors to enjoy the unique ambience and views across the garden throughout the season.
