New cafe Roots + Seeds Kitchen Garden to open in Cirencester Park

A NEW cafe and restaurant is opening in Cirencester in the spring.

Roots + Seeds Kitchen Garden is launching as a brand new and permanent cafe and restaurant in Easter at The Old Kennels in Cirencester Park. 

The new venture has been brought to the town by the team behind The Scenic Supper at Moreton-in-Marsh. 

With sustainability at its heart, menus will showcase Cotswolds artisan produce from within a 25-mile radius, alongside fruit and vegetables grown in its own, on-site kitchen garden.

School friends and founders – Toby Baggott, Sam Lawson-King and Scott Sullivan  – say their new venture gives them an opportunity to engage with both the environment and community. 

Their aim is to use the kitchen garden and be 75 percent home-grown by spring 2025.

“Climate change, food miles and sustainability are at the forefront of our minds,” says founder, Toby Baggott.

“Growing our own food over a weekly cycle with daily changing specials will help us achieve our goal of creating a low to zero food waste restaurant. 

Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard:

Roots + Seeds will offer a relaxed and friendly place serving up coffee, breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea or take away daily, and dinner from Thursday to Saturday.

Once the Bathurst family’s foxhound kennels and stables, the café occupies a new light-filled space with vaulted ceilings and large windows overlooking the kitchen garden.

Adjacent to the cafe there’s a separate children’s room, full of books and arts and crafts equipment designed to entertain families with young children.

Two of the Scenic Supper’s iconic glasshouses, previously located at Todenham Manor Farm, will be re-sited in the kitchen garden, offering somewhere to sit with a coffee or take out.

It will also have a full bar with artisan King Stone gin made by Roots + Seeds founder, Sam Lawson-King, taking centre stage.

Head Chef, Sam Idione’s menus will showcase home-grown produce, including locally reared beef, lamb, pork and poultry, game from the Bathurst Estate and its neighbours, and fresh fish and seafood delivered daily from Brixham in Devon.

Pre-lockdown, Toby worked in events management, Sam has a professional background in wine and hospitality as well as owning and making his own award-winning artisan gin, King Stone Gin, and Scott runs an outside catering business.
