The Yurt at Nicholsons, North Aston

Nicholsons is a beautiful plant centre tucked away in the pretty little village of North Aston and it boasts a delightful hidden gem amongst its 23-acres of greenery – The Yurt Café.

Wanting to combine the joys of browsing, planning and designing landscape gardens with the comfort and warmth of a homely café, The Yurt Café has created this special mix in the heart of Nicholsons’ plant centre. Using fresh, organic and local produce, this darling café is serving simple yet tasty dishes all home made with love.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast under the pretty handmade in Devon canape. Opening from 8:30 in the morning, you can sample some of their home-baked granola and perhaps tuck into some salmon and scrambled egg. All breakfast dishes can be served with toasted home-baked bread, so the fresh smell will invite into the cosy and intimate yurt. You also don’t need to worry about the morning cold as this yurt has a toasty fleece lining so both you and your morning café can stay warm and escape from the outside.

For a spot of lunch or perhaps a warm afternoon snack, there is a wide range on the menu. As these talented chefs use seasonal produce and enjoy experimenting, the menu is tweaked and changed throughout the year, but you will still find something for everyone, including gluten and dairy free options as well as vegetarian and vegan alternatives. Some of the current favourites are the juicy Confit Duck Leg with Red Cabbage, the crispy and creamy Spinach & Feta Filo Parcels and the tingling Cumin & Coriander Spicy Root Veg. 

There’s also plenty of sweets and desserts to tickle your taste buds including an array of homemade cakes, warm puddings such as the Moroccan Pastry Cake with Orange, Cinnamon & Date – plus scones served with North Aston Cream & Strawberry Jam. 

Whether you need a quick pick me up whilst browsing the trees, hedging and topiary or you come to Nicholsons specifically for this gorgeous establishment, The Yurt Café will serve you some of the tastiest, heartiest and flavourful dishes in Oxfordshire… as well as a good cup of coffee!
