Tasty treats

Your day wouldn't be complete without treating yourself to one of our delicious cream teas. If scones don't excite your taste buds or you're after something different, then try one of our delicious cakes instead. All baked on-site by our fabulous pastry chef, Sam, you won't be disappointed.

For the coffee lover


We pride ourselves on using the very best ingredients and our coffee is no exception. We know using good quality beans is important which is why we have a unique blend made specially for us by coffee experts, Lincoln & York.  So whether you want a plain filter coffee, smooth latte or strong espresso, we can make your favourite cup.

The amazing vegetables grown by volunteers at Scotney Castle

The amazing vegetables grown by volunteers at Scotney Castle

We are passionate about fresh, seasonal, local produce here at Scotney which is why we use as much from our walled garden as possible. With zero food miles you can’t get more local than that. Sometimes we don’t need it all so for a small donation you can take some home too, just pop into our walled garden to see what's on offer. Why not pick up a recipe for one of our delicious dishes in our tearoom, such as our scone of the month, to try at home.

Local produce

Scotney ale brewed using hops from the Scotney estate

Did you know we have the only working hop farm in the National Trust? This September try some delicious recipes using our ale, including Scotney ale stew and our always popular Scotney ale tea bread.

Special diet?

If you have special dietary requirements then our staff will be more than happy to help you find something suitable. With a range of vegetarian options as well as cakes without gluten & dairy containing ingredients, we have it covered.

Alfresco dining

Enjoying a snack at the Scotney Castle tearoom

Relax and enjoy a nice cup of tea and cake in our courtyard. Hope for sun but don't worry as we have a parasol to keep you dry when the rain comes. Dogs on leads are welcome in the courtyard.

Scone of the month

This month our feature scone is apricot and ginger. Come and enjoy a twist on the classic scone or, if you're feeling more traditional, try our equally scrumptious fruit or cheese scones.
