Your visit 

The café is outside the pay barrier, so feel free to come and enjoy the refreshments whether or not you have time to enjoy the garden. There is free WIFI and although we only allow dogs in the garden between October and April, they are allowed in the café year round.

We serve a main meal and a selection of light lunches every day and always have vegetarian options available. If you've got little people with you choose from our children’s Badger’s brunch box which is a pick & mix lunch, or our range of children size light meals.

Cup of coffee

Brunch menu

Our brunch menu is served every day until 1pm. Featuring bacon baps and toast with jam, it's just the thing to wake you up in the morning. We take great pride in our hot drinks, serving only fairtrade coffee made from the best ingredients while you wait. If coffee isn't your cup of tea, try our National Trust Everyday tea blend made specially for us by Clipper.

Local dishes

Princess Charlotte's husband King Leopold of Belgium is the inspiration for our chocolate layer cake, a gloriously sweet treat to be paired with a cup of tea or coffee.
