Lunch is served from around 12 noon.

Sourcing and recycling
We’re proud that over 80% of the money we spend on catering suppliers is spent on businesses in Cornwall and Devon. We use only Cornish meat, dairy and eggs in our on-site cafes – as well as Cornish salad leaves when they are in season. Find out about our sourcing.
We recycle a lot of our food waste in a huge composter that transforms it into a nitrogen-rich soil enhancer for our gardens.
Please bring your own refillable water bottle to help us cut down on the use of plastics.
Behind the scenes
The Eden Kitchen is a welcoming place where you can enjoy freshly created food and a drink, sharing long tables with other visitors. We designed the Eden Kitchen so that you can reconnect with food and see it prepared before you.
