Treat yourself to one of the tasty dishes on our May menu:
Homemade soup of the day | Served with a homemade roll and butter
Local asparagus tart | Fresh asparagus baked in a pastry case filled with cheese custard, served with a fresh salad and crushed new potatoes
Poached chicken breast | Cooked in white wine, with a tarragon and cream sauce, served with crushed new potatoes, spring greens and carrots
Rhubarb cobbler | Fresh seasonal rhubarb topped with a scone, baked in the oven until golden, served with creamy custard
If you're looking for a more informal place to eat, why not try one of our two cafes:
Muddy Boots | You'll find wholesome, hearty snacks served all day, in a relaxing environment, and it's the ideal place to warm up after a blustery walk. Muddy Boots is next to the visitor welcome area in the main car park and you'll get a warm welcome from the team, whatever the weather.
The Farmyard Cafe | Perfect if you're in a hurry. Grab a snack or hot drink and continue with your visit. You'll find the cafe in our courtyard near the Book Shop.
Enjoy a cream tea
Whether it's rain or shine, there's nothing like tucking into a cream tea.
We'll be serving freshly baked fruit scones with clotted cream and jam and a refreshing pot of tea, every day in Hobart's restaurant.
So why not treat yourself after you've explored the house or enjoyed the beauty of the gardens?
