Sweet or savoury - eating at Charlecote
Every tea, coffee or slice of cake you enjoy in the tea-room helps us fund the conservation of all the things you love in the house and around the parkland and gardens.
The tea-room is open every day from 9am and we have free Wi-Fi in here.
- Breakfast baps (bacon or sausage) served from 9am to 11.45am.
- Hot meals from midday until 2.30pm (3pm in school holidays).
- Soup, one pot, cakes and hot drinks available all day.
On busy days we'll open the tea garden, with outdoor seating, for snacks, hot drinks and scooped Spot Loggins ice-cream.
You'll also find ice-creams and bottled water at the Avenue Plants shop at the start or end of your visit. (Open Friday-Monday only until Christmas).
A mug of hot chocolate, a slice of Victoria sponge, a lovely cup of tea, or a delicious one-pot meal - what will make your day?
The Orangery offers hot food, snacks and drinks, with seating indoors and outside too.
We use our own award-winning venison, lamb and honey in our recipes and seasonal ingredients like mulberries and apples from the parkland too. The National Trust scone blogger loves our scones.
We always have gluten-free and vegetarian options. Please ask for more information if you have dietary requirements.
You're always welcome to bring your own food for babies.
School holidays and sunny weekends
Busy days can lead to queues in our little tea-room – why not bring a picnic instead to enjoy at the picnic benches by the river in the parkland all year round. Watch the wildlife and make the most of our beautiful scenery with your sandwiches.
We are working to improve and enlarge our Food and Beverage facilities with our major Visitor Infrastructure Project taking place over the next two years.
Discover some of our favourite recipes from Charlecote ingredients and local products that you can buy in our Pantry shop.
Art from the Park
Until February next year you can enjoy the artwork of the talented members of the Coventry Watercolour Society in the Orangery. All paintings are for sale - please speak to one of the Orangery team if you see anything you'd like to buy.
