Eating at Basildon Park

Basildon Park tea room

Serving fresh, local and seasonal food you’re sure to find something temptingly tasty in our tea-room. Choose from two settings and put your feet up.


The tea-room is open from 10am and can be found on the ground floor of the house in the Angkor Wat room. There is a light lunch menu served between 11:30am and 2.30pm, which includes a selection of hot and cold food. 

Throughout the day you can treat yourself to a cream tea or something else sweet from a large selection of homemade cakes and biscuits, including gluten-free options. 
The Old Kitchen is an indoor seating area, near the tea-room, where dogs and pushchairs have space to be without worrying about the mud or wet. Water and dog-biscuits are provided too.

The shop

The shop in the stable yard offers a small selection of cakes and takeaway hot and cold drinks, perfect to grab before a parkland walk or  a gentle stroll up to the house.


Find a nice spot at one of the picnic tables to enjoy the surroundings as you have your lunch. Or why not pitch up on the front lawn and enjoy vistas of the house and parkland?
