Relax, refresh and refuel at Attingham

A cream tea with jam and cream

Whether you're looking for food on the go or to sit down and savour something from our menu, you'll be spoilt for choice at Attingham.

We’re turning cakes and coffees into conservation; when you sit down for lunch or grab a hot drink on the go you’re  helping us protect and look after Attingham and the estate, so that we can keep it a  special place for everyone to enjoy for years to come. Thank you.

Whether you're tucking into lunch or enjoying a cream tea, take a seat and watch the world go by in the Carriage House Café. Throughout the year our seasonal recipes use as much of the organic produce that we grow in the Walled Garden as possible.

Refuel in the playfield

A new food trailer will be in the playfield from late spring/early summer 2020. Replacing the 'Greedy Pig' catering unit the new trailer will serve a wider range of hot and cold drinks, savoury and sweet snacks, sandwiches, and cakes and bakes. We'll update this page with more information when the new trailer is open.

 

Take a break in the Mansion 

Formerly the Mansion Tearoom, it has been renamed this year as 'Lord Berwick's T-Room'. The room was originally the 'Turning Room' for Thomas, 2nd Lord Berwick and contained tools and turning machines belonging to Thomas, who was a keen wood turner. 

It will be open daily in the Easter Holidays from 11am to 4pm, and then weekends and bank holidays until the summer. We are planning to continue refurbishing this area and may need to close the 'T-Room' at times.

 

For families

Little ones will love our children’s food range. A children’s hot food menu can be found in the Carriage House Café as well as a selection of sandwiches, children's wraps and snacks. We're proud to welcome families, so please let us know if we can lend you a highchair or help you any other way.

Food For Life

We have been awarded the Soil Association’s Bronze Food for Life Served Here Award which recognises our commitment to serving local, fresh and honest food made using ethical and sustainable ingredients.

To achieve it we worked closely with the Soil Association. We looked at everything from our menus and our suppliers to the way we prepare our food.  134 of our National Trust's cafes, restaurants and tea rooms have achieved the Food for Life Served Here Award. Between them they are serving 14,800 freshly prepared meals each day made from environmentally sustainable and seasonal ingredients.
