Take tea like a Georgian at ‘Capability’ Brown’s final masterpiece
Our tea-room is filled with both some National Trust classics, and some of Berrington’s own treats. We even try to including recipes that allow us to use produce from the garden. Why not read on to see if anything takes your fancy?
Using some classic National Trust recipes, you can find some of your favourites here at Berrington. You can choose from homemade cakes and biscuits, flans, soup and hot or cold lunches in our tea-room.
Because it is the old Edwardian servant's 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.
We hope this collaboration will continue for years to come. The Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds Restoration Project is looking for the different ways that our gardens can be used, and producing more fresh produce such as this is one. As you buy yourself a treat in the tea-room you’re supporting this critical project that is looking to the future of Berrington and helping the teams to achieve this.
Our menu includes light bites, sandwiches, hot lunches, homemade cakes and afternoon teas.

The Stables Cafe
On days that we are very busy we are opening our Stables Cafe.
We have converted our old stables into this new 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.
For 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 a place for you.
