Break for lunch in our restaurant at Clandon Park

After a walk around the garden or as a rest stop between rooms, take some time out to visit our fantastic, friendly restaurant.

Situated in our atmospheric vaulted undercroft, you can enjoy great food indoors and outside on our new terrace.


Want to bring your own food? We have a small picnic area with benches provided, or you can just throw your rug down in the garden, break out your hamper and enjoy the surroundings.

Visit our shop

Whilst you’re in the undercroft why not stop by our charming shop in the old kitchen and pick up a memory of your visit. We hope you’ll find something for everyone.

Local produce

Our shop stocks a number of locally produced items including these delicious ales from The Hogs Back Brewery in Farnham, made from the finest English Malted Barley and English Hops and fine red wine from Denbies Vineyards in Dorking.

Hinemihi mementos

Hinemihi is the only Maori Meeting House in the UK and you can find a number of unique items in our shop celebrating her story, including books by expert Alan Gallop.

Our restaurant and shop are located in the undercroft, formerly basement rooms. These rooms originally included family rooms, for informal dining and business, as well as the kitchen and its adjoining pastry room.

The original kitchen, where our shop is now, retains many original features from a re-fit that took place around 1870. You can still see the steam heated hot-closet, spoon racks, the range and the wonderful fireplace by Benham & Sons.

Servants were subjected to a long list of rules and regulations

The servants' hall would also have been located in the basement. The pine table with Tuscan column legs c.1730, now in the restaurant, was probably from here as was the famous 18th-century rules board.
