Calke's restaurant is open seven days a week from 9.30am, offering a small selection of takeaway drinks and snacks.

In line government guidelines, Calke Abbey's restaurant is currently offering a takeaway service only, serving a limited selection of takeaway drinks and cold snacks. 

We've introduced new safety measures including a one-way system in the stableyards and restaurant in order to help us maintain social distancing, and installed screens inside so you can purchase refreshments safely. Please note there is no indoor seating, but there is seating available outdoors in the courtyards. We are only taking card and contactless payments at this time. 

You're required to wear a face covering inside, unless you are exempt, so please bring one with you.
