Sunflower Cafe

Dear Fordham customers, It is after much consideration that we are limiting our Sunflower café menu for a period of time. This is a decision we have not taken lightly & have tried desperately to avoid however sadly due to reasons beyond our control we must now act. We are of course working hard to rectify the situation and to have new and exciting menu offers for you to choose from in the very near future. What will this look like? • In all likelihood we will be in a position to serve a small selection of hot meals Monday to Friday. This menu will be amended daily. • On Saturdays and Sundays however this will be limited further to savouries and cakes along with our range of hot drinks and cold beverages.


Reasons to visit us


Only five miles from Newmarket, our garden centre at Fordham joined the Scotsdales family in 1991.

Today it has a superb plant department and is packed with ideas for your garden, including lots of BBQs and comfortable, stylish garden furniture. And there’s a wonderful gift department as well, to help you make the very most of your indoor and outdoor space.

Smaller than our other garden centres at Great Shelford and Horningsea, Fordham has a lovely boutique feel that keeps many visitors coming back again and again. Our Sunflower Café at Fordham has an outdoor terrace that overlooks the plant area – it’s a perfect spot to sit in the sun with a cuppa, just enjoying the good things in life.
