Eating at Basildon Park
Indulge in a cream tea in our main tea-room in the mansion, or grab a drink and snack from our Toolshed tea-room and head out to find a great picnic spot to really take in the amazing views of Basildon Park.
The main tea-room is open from 10am - 4.45pm, or dusk if earlier, everyday and the Toolshed tea-room is open on weekends, bank holidays and school holidays.
The main tea-room can be found on the ground floor of the house in the entrance hall. 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.
Find our new Toolshed tea-room in the Stableyard next to Visitor Reception, where you can grab a hot drink and some snacks to start your visit at Basildon Park.

We welcome all visitors into the tearoom, including four-legged friends. We ask only that your dog waits at the table whilst you order your food in the serving area. Water is available for dogs outside the tearoom.
