There is always something freshly baked at the tea-room

You can choose from homemade cakes and biscuits, flans, soup and heartier lunches in our tea-room, which was originally the servants' hall. Wherever possible, we use ingredients grown in the walled garden or locally produced, so our menu is fresh, seasonal and something a little bit different.

Seasonal vegetables picked fresh from our walled garden

Berrington has a very productive walled garden even in winter which is lovingly cared for by our volunteer gardening team. We always try to supply the tea-room with nearly all of its seasonal fruit, vegetables and salad requests so that you can enjoy something fresh from the garden each time you visit

The harness room gift shop

Our shop is located in the old harness room off the main courtyard and is stocked with a wide range of gifts and treats. Drop in for present ideas including books, jewellery and much more.  With the equestrian exhibits on display you'll also find locally produced chutneys and beer as well as our own branded shortbread. The Berrington gardening team are also pleased to offer seasonal plants and vegetables direct from our garden.
