Toddler Tuesdays

Toddler Tuesdays are a great time to visit Buckland with little ones if you are looking for a quieter experience.

With a childrens menu filled with tasty treats and light bite lunches, it is great place for a friends or family weekly get together.

Whats on the menu?

The Ox Yard restaurant offers light lunches which include, soups, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, paninis and salads.

We have a wide variety of cakes, including Buckland's very own apple cake inspired by the orchards and cider press in the Great Barn.

Money raised from the sale of our apple cake goes into looking after the woodlands here at Buckland.

Thank you to everyone who have bought a slice of cake, as you are helping to keep Buckland special forever.

Home Grown

We try to use as much produce grown in the kitchen garden as possible, so look out for dishes made with seasonal fruit and vegetables throughout the year.

" Did you know? It would take over 6,000 cream teas to be sold to pay for repairs to 10 metres of the Cider House garden walls. Every sip, bite and crunch you take in the restaurant helps us to look after Buckland Abbey for the future. "
