Calke's restaurant and café

Girl drinking from a takeaway cup

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 and limited seating available outdoors. 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. 

During peak times and at weekends, we're also opening the kiosk at Calke Explore (weather permitting), so you can stay refreshed while walking the estate. 

All Food and Beverage outlets across Calke are awarded with a five-star Environmental Health Score.
