Eating & shopping

Fresh tastes to enjoy

From light bites to hot breakfasts, no visit is complete without a spot of refreshment in our tearooms or restaurant.

We're lucky to have a wealth of fantastic local suppliers, produce markets and farmers to create tasty seasonal menus all year round.

We care about the environment and use 100% recycled packaging for our sandwich packs. All profits go back to looking after Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.
