Four of our London cafés have had a complete refresh this spring. The new interiors are inspired by each special place. They’re family-friendly, a great place to eat and relax - and all will have free wifi soon.

Osterley Park and House tea-room

This remarkable space used to be the stables for the family that owned Osterley. The new interior shows off the stables and makes the most of the architecture. The feeding troughs and cobbles are very much part of the atmosphere. The details are important too - from telling the story of the horses that once lived there, to providing things to keep little hands occupied today.

Sutton House café

Sutton House’s varied and diverse stories have influenced the design of our new café, which sits within the original Tudor courtier’s house. With an eclectic mix of styles and a warm welcome, you can always find something that delights you - including delicious cake, good coffee and house blends of tea. Relax in our Georgian tea parlour or our well-stocked second hand bookshop.

Ham House and Garden café

Our orangery is one of the first of its kind in the country and was built for William Murray, childhood friend of Charles I. It looks out over our well-stocked kitchen garden with its rich and diverse harvest of vegetables and fruits.

Ham’s story centres upon the Duchess of Lauderdale, who was amongst the first courtiers to embrace the fashion of drinking tea. We’ll be continuing this noble tradition but serving great coffee too. We’ll be using fresh produce grown and picked by our team of gardeners, so our ingredients and dishes will change with the seasons.

Claremont Landscape Garden

Owned by a princesses and a duke, the garden has long been used to escape life’s pressure and meet with friends. The new café design takes its inspiration from the gardeners who fashioned this renowned landscape garden. The café has the look of a gardener’s bothy, where you will be able to enjoy a brew and admire the labours of the day.

With the outside terrace eating area, on sunny days you can enjoy al fresco eating whilst taking in the tempting views across the serpentine lake. Being just a short walk from the free car park and outside the pay barrier into the garden, it makes the perfect place to meet and enjoy with friends.
