Funeral Catering at the Garden

The beauty and serenity of the setting here at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is a natural choice to celebrate the life of someone close.

We have a selection of beautiful locations within the Garden for you to choose from and a range of packages to suit every budget. Alternatively, we can tailor a bespoke package especially for you.

Our team fully appreciate that this is an extremely difficult and stressful time for you and your family. We are sensitive to your circumstances and will sit down with you and make suggestions to help ease the burden.
