Standen’s pumpkin and tomato soup

There's no need to miss out on a treat at Standen.
Our menu includes options for vegetarian and gluten free diets with soya milk available for hot drinks. Please ask one of our team if you have any specific dietary requirements.

From plot to plate

Last year our kitchen garden supplied over 400kg of fresh fruit and vegetables to our café.

Try some of our tasty seasonal dishes made with produce straight from the kitchen garden.


Bring a picnic to enjoy anywhere in the grounds or in our designated picnic area close to the car park.
If you don't have your own picnic then buy a take away option from our cafe to enjoy in the garden.
