Mapperton House and Gardens has announced a new partnership with West Dorset restaurant Brassica. Cass Titcombe and Louise Chidgey of the Beaminster restaurant will take over the management of Mapperton’s café, The Sawmill, from the beginning of April.
Viscount Hinchingbrooke, who runs Mapperton, the family home of the Earl and Countess of Sandwich, said: “Over just a few short years Cass and Louise have developed an outstanding reputation at Brassica for delicious food, and this has now been recognised by The Sunday Times in their Top 100 listing.”
The new partnership will offer visitors homemade cakes, cream teas, a range of light lunch dishes and sandwiches, all with some of Brassica’s signature touches.
The Sawmill will open on Sunday 2 April until the end of October, every day except Saturdays from 11am to 5pm.
Mapperton Gardens open on 1 March and the house opens for guided tours from 2 April.
