Hi Ella,
It looks like Sanguisorba minor, "Salad Burnet" to me.
I love the little leaves in salad as they taste very fresh like cucumber.

Sanguisorba minor

When crushed, these leaves smell of cucumbers and can be used in salads. The plant will form large clumps over time and attracts many different insects. As it seeds freely, it can be quite invasive in an open border, but it is a good plant for a short meadow as it is quite tolerant of mowing.
