The Old Servants' Hall tea-room at Berrington Hall

We're looking forward to welcoming you back to the Old Servants' Hall tea-room this winter. We're serving hot and cold drinks, warming bowls of soup and one-pots, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, cakes and other refreshments every day that Berrington is open.

Using some classic National Trust recipes, you can find some of your favourites here at Berrington. You can choose from homemade cakes and biscuits, scones, one-pots, soup and jacket potatoes here in our tea-room. We've also got some festive specials on the menu from Saturday 20 November, including Christmas cake and turkey baps.  

Because it is the old Edwardian servants' hall, the tea-room is located down a few steps. If you need assistance or disabled access to get into the tea-room just ask a member of staff and they would be happy to help.

When Berrington was originally designed and built in 1775 the servants' hall was in fact used as the Georgian kitchen and you can see the range still in place today.

Fresh and seasonal menu

We like to move with the seasons here at Berrington and one way that our tea-room does this is by creating seasonal dishes and puddings for our visitors throughout the year. Wherever possible, we use the different ingredients grown in the walled garden or locally produced, so our menu is fresh and a little bit different.

We have a very productive walled garden which is lovingly cared for by our Gardeners and our volunteer gardening team. Throughout the year they try to supply the tea-room with some of our seasonal fruit and vegetables to use as ingredients for some of our dishes.

The Stables Cafe - open on busy days 

On days that we are very busy we open our Stables Cafe. This is a quicker option for those who just want something to take away, or for those who have brought their four-legged friend with them.

On a hot summer’s day, this is one of the best places to be as you can grab a fresh Bennetts Farmhouse ice cream and take it to enjoy in a deckchair in the walled garden.

The Stables Café can also offer hot and cold drinks, cakes and light bites. If you just fancy a snack this could be the place for you.
