The Scented Botanist Bistro

The Bistro at Keyneston Mill is currently closed.

At The Scented Botanist, our contemporary bistro, we strive not only to bring you great quality food in a beautiful, relaxed environment, but also to create menus which are adventurous, inspiring and wonderfully fragrant! Start your day with a freshly brewed, warming barista coffee, or plan your morning around a delicious brunch, now available from 10am to 12 noon.  Our lunches are definitely something to savour, with a wide choice of seasonal savoury dishes including vegetarian and vegan options, and a range of home-made cakes and patisserie to follow.  Evening events also take place regularly, so whatever your preference, we look forward to seeing you soon…

We called in whilst on holiday. Didn't know what to expect, we just wanted some lunch. We had the most beautiful meal. Enjoyed every mouthful. Well worth a visit for lunch. I sat watching the chef prepare the meals, I don't think I've ever seen such a perfectionist. It was lovely to watch him take such care. We will definitely be back. Thankyou to the lovely girls that served us too.

Exceeded our expectations. Visited a few days ago on a short break to Bournemouth in rubbish weather decided to look for somewhere nice for lunch. I am a wheelchair user and rang ahead to check access and if there was a disabled loo. Yes to both. It was raining hard when we arrived and really happy to see the temporary ramp had been put out in advance. Very friendly welcome. Interesting mainly veggie menu - we had delicious mushroom soup followed by the vegan roll and roasted veg both with beautiful and delicious salad garnished with flower petals. Couldn't resist the desserts - purple iced brownis with violets and the vegan lemon cake lovely light and beautiful. We would like to return in better weather and discover the gsrden.
