Stableyard Tea-room

A family at the Stableyard Tea-room at Castle Ward

We've reopened our tea-room at Castle Ward with some new measures and a limited offer. Currently we're open for takeaway and sit in but will be takeaway only from 27 December in line with NI Executive regulations.

What's available for from our Tea-room:

  • Hot drinks
  • Cold refreshments
  • Traybakes
  • Scones
  • Sandwiches (Seasonal variations)
  • Hot food (Sausage Roll, Meat Pastie, Curried Cauliflower Pastie)
  • Glastry Farm Ice-cream in varied flavours
Filter Coffee is poured into two takeaway cups in a National Trust cafe

Please note, we've introduced a new one way system and screens to keep everyone safe so enter by the normal door and follow the floor stickers. We've provided hand sanitiser on entry and exit for you. At the moment we're sorry we can't accept reusable cups, but our takeaway cups and lids are completely compostable.

Sitting in

Sit in is availablit in the Theatre. From 27 December the tea-room will be takeaway only for 6 weeks.


At the moment we're card only.

Dietary requirements

Normally we cater for a large range of dietary requirements, but with limited stock we may no longer be able to provide you with an alternative. We aim to always have soy milk on hand an a vegetarian soup option. Call ahead before your visit if you are concerned.
