Eating at Beningbrough Hall

Hot drinks and cakes from the restaurant

Enjoy the delicious range of seasonal and locally sourced food that we use in the restaurant. With all profits going back into the upkeep and conservation of Beningbrough, you don’t need to feel too guilty about eating that extra slice of cake!

Seasonal harvest and food miles

From plot to plate – we love local food, that’s why our walled garden is so important to us.
Throughout the year we harvest a wide variety of fresh Yorkshire produce including rhubarb, asparagus, beetroot and apples, just to name a few. We can even get our hands on a selection of berries if we are able to beat the squirrels to them!  We use this produce in our soups, quiches, light meals and main courses, reducing our food miles to literally metres.

Any surplus produce not used in the kitchen, or for tasting, is made available in the stables shop areas.   


Family friendly

Children’s lunchtime picnic boxes are on sale in the restaurant along with smaller portions of some of the main dishes, allowing our youngest visitors to tuck in with you.

Great food whatever the weather

We have ample outdoor seating which maximises the south facing sun for those dry days. Indoor tables vary in size to accommodate all the family with high chairs available for the smallest members.
