Eating in Mote Café

Tasty Café menu

Enjoy delicious, freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes, light lunches and hot meals in the Mote Café.

Many of the ingredients are locally sourced and, where possible, ingredients come from the garden and estate at Ightham Mote. It doesn’t get any more local than that!

Special diets

Time for afternoon tea

Whether you want a cuppa and cake, soup and a roll, a cream tea or a meal, many of our dishes cater for special dietary requirements such as coeliacs.
