The Yurt at Nicholsons; simple and surprising.

The Yurt

The Yurt at Nicholsons offers a unique dining experience with exquisite, locally sourced menus.

Our menus are curated by our head chef, Enrico, who takes pride in fabulous flavours. All menus offer a variety of dishes using seasonal ingredients and cater for all dietary requirements. In our drive for sustainability we are focussing on locally sourced, seasonal, and innovative menus. Our restructure means that we will no longer be offering coffee and cake, and now offer restaurant service only – although we do recommend Frankie’s afternoon teas to satisfy those of you with a sweet tooth…

Our offering consists of breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea (please note: afternoon tea available by booking only, via emailing – do take a look at our menus for more detail. The Yurt offers an enchanting dining experience, and we do have private dining huts available to book for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, offering a more private setting.

Our beautiful surroundings are a wonderful place to relax with friends and family, we would love to see you soon (booking is advised).

The Yurt Just Gets Better
One of the things I love about this business is that it constantly evolves as it keeps everything fresh and interesting. The Yurt sits in the centre of a tasteful plant centre and rather than being an ‘ordinary’ cafe, it has grown into place where you know the approach is ethical and sustainable but the food is imaginative and really enjoyable – and a cut above. They have recently revised their menu and moved from a coffee and cake offering to a more sophisticated menu and it really works. Prices for main courses range from £14.50 to £22 so it delivers on value and the predominantly vegetarian menu has a real range of flavours. On my first visit I chose the blackened halloumi which I really loved – so much so we returned the next day when I went for a Fennel cream topped with red peppers, pine nuts and artichokes and very tasty. Great desserts too. The lovely yurt breakfasts continue and next on my horizon is the stunning looking afternoon tea…. All of the above in a beautiful setting with the loveliest of front of house team you could wish for.
