Eating and drinking at Charlecote Park

Treat yourself in the Wood Yard café at Charlecote Park

** There are essential improvement works taking place at Charlecote over winter 2021. This means that only one of our three outlets will be open each day. Please check with the team at Visitor Reception when you arrive, to find out which outlet is open for your visit. **

There are three outlets you can enjoy food and drink from at Charlecote Park, which are open on different days depending on the season. Please check with the team at Visitor Reception when you arrive, to find out which outlet during your visit.

One-way queuing systems are in place, for ordering and collecting your food and drink purchases. Masks are no longer required, but we do encourage their use while inside these spaces to help protect others.

Protective screens have been installed around our tills collection points, and hand-sanitiser is available as you enter. 

If you have dietary requirements, you may prefer to come prepared as we are serving a limited offer and currently may not have what you need.


Wood Yard café


The Wood Yard cafe serves a range of takeaway hot and cold drinks, and seasonal light bites to eat on the go, including tray bakes, scones, sausage rolls, pasties, paninis, sandwiches and ice-creams.

It’s the perfect place for a light snack as you admire the architecture of the surrounding historic buildings. You’ll find it to the left of the house as you walk down the main drive.

Seating is available inside and outside the Wood Yard café. There’s plenty of space outside on the benches for groups and buggies. Dogs are very welcome at the tables outside in the Wood Yard, and at designated spaces inside the café.

Orangery Restaurant

A slightly more formal venue, the Orangery is located to the right of the house, behind the large Cedar trees.

You’ll find a selection of drinks and snacks available here, with seating inside and a small courtyard to the side where you can enjoy your food outside.

Tea Garden Trailer
 


Grab something to go from the trailer, located in the Tea Garden, near the Outbuildings and Second-hand bookshop. There are hot drinks and light bites to take away, with a handful of picnic benches to sit at nearby, or picnic on the grass by the river.

Litter, rubbish and recycling

The deer, sheep and other wildlife in the parkland, would be very grateful if you can leave nothing but footprints behind. Please dispose of all your rubbish in the bins provided or take it home with you to recycle. Our takeaway hot drinks are served in plant-based disposable tableware, all of which is compostable or recyclable.

Taking your rubbish home, helps to look after the wildlife in the parkland.
