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 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 in the tea-room.

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. With options including hot and cold drinks, cakes and light bites, if you just fancy a snack this could be a place that takes your fancy.

The harness room gift shop

Our shop is located in the old harness room in the main courtyard and is stocked with a wide range of gifts and treats. Drop in for present ideas including books, jewellery and much more. With the equestrian exhibits on display you'll also find locally produced chutneys and beer as well as our own branded shortbread. The gardening team are also pleased to offer seasonal plants and vegetables direct from our garden.

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?
