Eating at Attingham

Our Carriage House Cafe has reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. You can only visit our cafe as part of your pre-booked admission ticket. In line with government guidance you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces, including the cafe. Please bring one with you. Please bring one with you. You'll also find a new outdoors hot drinks and snacks takeaway kiosk located in the Field of Play (open weekends in autumn).

Open from 9am daily, the Carriage House Cafe is located in our Stables Courtyard, just as you come into the main site. Our welcome team will be able to give you directions if you're not sure where to go. In line with government guidelines you'll be required to wear a face covering in indoor areas including our shops, cafes, food outlets and toilets. Please bring one with you.

How it works...

We've introduced new measures to help keep everybody safe. As you enter the Carriage House Cafe, you'll find a one-way queueing system for placing and collecting orders. There are protective screens at the till and collection points, and hand sanitiser available. We can only accept card payments, contactless whenever possible.

We're serving hot and cold drinks, and some light lunches and snacks. Our menu includes sandwiches, hot pasties (including vegetarian and vegan) and sausage rolls, cakes, scones, crisps and confectionary. We have ice cream for sale for those warmer days and our Baker is back and making fresh scones for enjoying takeaway cream teas in the parkland. Please note that all items are subject to availability.

If you have dietary requirements you may prefer to come prepared, as with a limited offer we can't guarantee that we'd have what you need. We do have a small range of gluten and dairy-free food available, and soya or oat milk for hot drinks.

Our food and hot drinks will be served on plant-based disposable tableware, all of which is composted or recycled. In the Carriage House Cafe we are accepting re-usable cups for hot drinks  provided they are clean and in good condition. For the health and wellbeing of everyone, our teams will be following a specific process to minimise handling.

We have extended the seating outside the cafe, and we have limited seating inside the cafe. 

You're welcome to picnic in the grounds where it's safe to do so.

For families

Amongst our other drinks and snacks we’re offering children’s hot chocolate, Pom-Bear crisps, chocolate bars and cartons of fruit juice.

The Field of Play, located at the top of the Mile Walk, has re-opened as part of a pre-booked visit to Attingham, but things will be a little different to normal. 

The new food kiosk which was commissioned last year in response to visitor demand, is serving takeaway barista coffee, teas, hot chocolates, cakes and bakes, ice-cream and savoury snacks and is open on weekends in autumn from 11am - 3pm (weather dependent). For everyone’s safety at this current time drinks will be served in our takeaway compostable containers which are made from plants.

We have undertaken work to ensure that the re-opening of our food outlets will prioritise the health and safety of staff, volunteers, suppliers and visitors and this will continue with the opening of the takeaway unit. There will be a one-way queueing system to place orders and for order collection and we’ll only be able to take card payments. 

Closed for now:

Lord Berwick’s Tea Room at the Mansion remains closed for the time being.

We look forward to welcoming you back, and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone. As we’re turning cakes and coffees into conservation; you’re helping us protect and look after Attingham and the estate. Thank you.
