Using only local suppliers and herbs grown with passion on site you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, cakes, coffee and hand made teas made by the Secret Herb Garden and all fresh and home made every day.


The Secret Herb Garden was born in 2011. Hamish a wine merchant with a passion for Herbs dreamt of a magical Herb Garden and Liberty a resource manager with a passion for all thing vintage dreamt of a café and shop full of charm, a shop that would make you smile, the seeds were sown and the dream began, Hamish started a Diploma in Herbology at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh and after securing the plot of land that now is the Secret Herb Garden.

The Herb Garden is now a place where people can open the door to the magic of nature. To relax, enjoy and feel embraced by the herbs whether that’s sitting amongst them in the glasshouse or walking among them in the gardens. Our Herb Garden offers something for everyone: a place to enjoy and be embraced by the surrounding herbs, plants and nature and now The Secret Garden Distillery. It offers a haven to sit, enjoy and contemplate, or a place to get involved and learn how herbs and nature have an important place in our daily lives.
