Eating at Blickling Estate

National Trust Vegetable Curry

Throughout the year The Stables, Muddy Boots and The Farmyard cafés serve a variety of options for a quick snack or a tasty meal...

The Stables

You'll find plenty of choice at The Stables, from hot and cold dishes to soup, sandwiches and cakes.  We use local, seasonal produce wherever possible and have a continual supply of fruit and vegetables from the walled garden.  

Produce regularly includes beetroot, carrots, basil, cucumber, leeks, potatoes, courgettes, garlic and red onions (when available).

Muddy Boots

You'll find wholesome, hearty snacks served all day, in a relaxing environment, and it's the ideal place to warm up after a blustery walk. Muddy Boots is next to Visitor Reception in the main car park and offers a cosy atmosphere, whatever the weather. Dogs are welcome.

The Farmyard Café

The perfect spot for a quick break whilst on a walk around the estate with your four-legged friends*. Grab a snack or hot drink and continue with your visit. You'll find the café in the Farmyard, by the bookshop, stamp shop and plant centre.

*Dogs are welcome in Muddy Boots and the Farmyard, but are not permitted on the main driveway, in the East Wing, house or formal garden.
