Café - Shop - Nursery

Salut Café

Our Café opened in May 2018.

Situated at our quayside entrance, The Salutation Café is open every day from 10am. Selling great coffee, freshly baked goods and ice cream made on site, all served in the informal surroundings of our plant nursery. Take a seat outside in the summer, surrounded by our blooms. Or hole up inside amongst the cosy antiques if the weather takes a turn.

Our cafe is fully licensed and also serves a selection of beers and wines.


The Salutation Gift Shop

The Shop translates the nursery into design, pairing flowers, grasses, succulents, and everything else stylish with carefully chosen antiques and specially commissioned pieces from local artisans.

Browse our homewares, antiques and one-of-a-kind finds. Pick up our homemade sauces and jams. Or treat yourself to one of our body oils or soaps, scented by produce from The Salutation Gardens.

Plant Nursery

Our Plant Nursery is situated at the entrance to our gardens, at the Sandwich quayside. Open every day, selling a carefully curated selection of plants, flowers and shrubs, all which have been grown and tended to by our gardening team. Here you will find a range of plants to suits various garden positions, planting schemes and soils.

Every plant sold here has been grown within our estate, and depending on seasonality, are available to view in situ within The Salutation Gardens.
