Imber Kitchen Garden

The first crops from the Imber Court Kitchen Garden have been harvested and taken into the Café Metropole.

Chef Mercedes eagerly grabbed the bountiful harvest and before you could say “haute cuisine” there was a refreshing Broad bean and Mint soup on the menu.

Our deep filled sandwiches are now packed full of salad leaves from the Imber Court Kitchen Garden Salad beds.
