Delicious cakes and delights on offer in the tea room

Year round our garden team are busy growing as much produce as possible to use in our delicious dishes in the tea-room. From strawberry tart, to leek and potato soup we keep our food miles as low as possible.

Yuletide treats

The holly is only for decoration

Pick up a fleece blanket and snuggle up by the fire in our tea-room. Treat yourself to a festive drink such as a gingerbread latte and cakes such as cranberry and orange scones and mince pies. Or warm up with a wholesome soup made from produce from the walled garden or a scrummy panini. Fillings include bacon & brie, tuna melt and Mediterranean Christmas.

Estate produce

Ruby red Devon cattle grazing in the sunshine at Arlington Court

We breed Jacob sheep and Red Ruby Devon cattle. Not only do they provide the tea-room with fresh meat, they also help maintain the parkland in a totally organic way.
