Eating and shopping at Berrington Hall

You can choose from homemade cakes and biscuits, flans, soup and hot or cold lunches in our tea-room. Wherever possible, we use ingredients grown in the walled garden or locally produced, so our menu is fresh, seasonal and something a little bit different.

Visit the tea-room

The Old Servant's Hall tea-room is located down a few steps and within what was the Edwardian servants hall just over 100 years ago. 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 when you pop in for a quick refresh during your visit.

Fresh and seasonal menu

We have a very productive walled garden, even in winter, which is lovingly cared for by our volunteer gardening team. We always try to supply the tea-room with nearly all of its seasonal fruit, vegetables and salad requests so that you can enjoy something fresh from the garden each time you visit.

The second-hand bookshop

We've converted Berrington's original garage to a bookshop packed full of treasures. Our bookshop receives books donated by our supporters on a daily basis. These include everything from the latest bestsellers to hard-to-find and even antiquarian editions. Whether you are a casual reader or just want to complete a collection, our bookshop is sure to offer some surprise choices.

Also, every penny made from a book being purchased goes towards our Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds Restoration Project. So why not pop in and see what you can find?
