Our refreshments kiosk at Morston Quay

Our small, friendly team prepare freshly made food on site daily; enjoy sandwiches, bacon rolls, lovingly handmade cakes and scones or wet your whistle with a nice chilled beverage.  Enjoy all of our delicious treats on one of the many provided picnic bench’s overlooking the stunning marshs and the very widely recognisable Blakeney Point in the distance.

Fancy a bit of shade? You are welcome to head upstairs with your four legged friends into our viewing tower with panoramic views of your surroundings.

New for winter 2019/20

We have added paninis to our winter hot food offer at Morston Quay. Available in ham and cheese or cheese and red onion, each panini is prepared and cooked fresh to order. Also available as a vegan option with vegan cheese, please ask when ordering.

If you have an allergy or intolerance, please let us know 

Food made here in our busy kitchen is made using a wide range of ingredients. Whilst we do our best, we can’t guarantee that any of our dishes are totally allergen free. We’d love to help you with your choice by telling you about our ingredients. Please speak to a member of our team when you visit. Visited before? Please speak to a member of our team as ingredients sometimes chage.

Dogs are welcome 

We know dogs are part of the family too so dogs and well behaved owners are welcome at Morston Quay.

Doing our bit for the environment

At the National Trust we use Vegware packaging made from plants for our disposables, which means that our takeaway cups and lids are fully compostable, low carbon and completely free from plastic. We also sell reusable bamboo cups, or you can bring your own and receive a 25p discount off your next hot drink with us. 

Where our food comes from

Today the National Trust is the UK’s biggest farmer, looking after over 600,000 acres of farmland with our tenant farmers. Whether it’s for the Bensons juices in your glass or the butter you put on your scones, we require all our farmers to use nature friendly farming techniques. For things we can’t produce ourselves we apply these same regulations to all our suppliers too.

Thank you

For eating all those scones...

Everytime you purchase from our refreshments kiosk you are helping to look after Blakeney National Nature Reserve for generations to come. We couldn't do it without you.
