What's on the menu?

Brunch

Along with your morning brew or coffee, treat yourself to one of the freshly baked pastries on offer. Or if you prefer something savoury try one of the sausage rolls...when in season, made with apples from the garden.

Lunch

You can pick up a light lunch as a takeaway with hot sandwiches, loaded wedges and warming one pots on offer. Favourite flavours at the moment include beef stew or cannellini bean and kale one pot.

Cream tea

If you prefer to eat after your walk, choose from one of the popular scones or bakes. Fruit or cheese? Flapjack or brownie? Decisions, decisions.

Mix it up a little

Add a flavour to your drink, choose from a selection of syrups - perfect for those with a sweet tooth.

Of course you can still pick up your favourites including a good old cup of tea and hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.

Plants not plastic

The takeaway packaging you will get your food and drink in are made from a plant based material - not plastic. This makes them fully compostable after they've been used and in turn, this will help future crops grow.

Remember your reusable cup

Every time you present a reusable cup when you order a hot drink at one of our cafes, tea rooms or kiosks*, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used. This promotion replaces the hot drinks loyalty card scheme, which closed in February 2021.

*Discount not guaranteed at food outlets operated by third parties.

If you have an allergy or intolerance 

Most of the food and drink served in our café’s, restaurants and tea-rooms is prepared on site in our kitchens, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free. If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served in our cafés, please ask the café staff who will be happy to help.

Try a new recipe

It might be the 'Bake Off' factor or just that we're all spending more time in our homes, but baking has certainly taken off recently. Here are a few of Beningbrough's favourite recipes from our menu over the year and a few other northern delicacies.
