Relax in the tea room

Visitors browsing for gifts in the shop at East Riddlesden Hall at Christmas

A day out at East Riddlesden Hall isn’t complete without a visit to the tea room. This winter we'll be serving up a range of warming, tasty treats for you to enjoy in the beautifully decorated, historic bothy. All food can be packaged to take away too, so you can wrap up and enjoy a bite to eat outdoors while you enjoy the fresh air.

Visiting the tea-room

There is no charge to visit the tea-room, so even if you're not visiting East Riddlesden Hall you can call in and enjoy a hot drink, delicious sandwich or freshly made scone any time. 

All items can be packaged to be taken away, with seating available inside the historic bothy, as well as outside and in the lower fields. If you're sitting outside, your four-legged friends are welcome to join you too - so you can enjoy a freshly brewed cup of tea after a walk around the lower fields.

Please be aware that dogs aren't allowed in the gardens, but are welcome to enjoy the lower fields and riverside walk.

The tea-room is accessed via a staircase, but we have limited accessible seating on the ground floor as well. 

In England, from 19 July, face coverings are not compulsory but we recommend that you wear one in any area on your visit which is enclosed and crowded. 

What's on the menu?

From freshly brewed coffee to tasty snacks and yummy cakes, we've got plenty of treats for you to enjoy on a visit to the tea-room. 

Every day we'll be serving up freshly made, tasty sandwiches and there's a range of delicious sweet treats and yummy bakes too. If you're visiting with younger ones, we've got kids sandwiches available too, and a range of crisps and snacks for the whole family to enjoy. 

Each day we'll be baking up a batch of fresh, yummy scones

The real star of the tea-room are our homemade scones. Our talented team will be baking up a batch of these National Trust classics every morning so you can enjoy them fresh from the oven, served with clotted cream and jam. 

If you're looking to refuel after a walk around the fields, we've got a selection of hot drinks available for you to relax on a bench with. Even if you're not visiting the house and garden, there's no charge to visit the tea-room. Your four-legged friends are very welcome on the tables outside, so it's the perfect place to relax after a dog walk. 

Plants, not plastic...

As a conservation charity, we’re committed to keeping the environment healthy and beautiful. Our disposable cups, plates and cutlery are fully biodegradable and are made from recycled and plant-based materials. Find out more about what we’re doing to phase out single use plastic.

Support our work

Did you know that we need to sell 30 scones to pay for four hours of intricate repair work to a 400 year-old wall hanging at East Riddlesden Hall?

Every purchase made in the tea room supports our work here, so whilst you’re catching up with friends over a coffee you’re also helping to keep centuries of history alive for generations to come.

Special dietary requirements

Please let us know of any special dietary requirements and we’ll provide you with a list of any allergens in our dishes.
