Following extensive work on the East Wing, our refreshments outlet next to the stables is open once again.

Seaton Delaval Hall is a 'work in progress' property - and the refreshments outlet is no exception. With no preparation area and limited space, we are currently only able offer a small selection of light snacks and drinks. However, plans are already in place for this small space to give you a big welcome with a new outdoor sitting area and a decoration scheme themed around the Delaval family's love of horses.

Here's a selection of what's on offer:

  • Freshly brewed tea and coffee
  • Delicious soup of the day
  • Selection of cakes, scones and biscuits (including gluten free)
  • Variety of tasty sandwiches
  • Scrumptious local ice creams
  • Choice of soft drinks
