The tea-room at East Riddlesden Hall

Inside the tea-room, tables sit under aged oak beams

Whether you’d like a scone and a cup of tea or something more filling, the tea-room has something to tempt all tastes.

There's always a great selection of sandwiches and jacket potatoes available to choose from in the tea-room along with soup of the day and a seasonal speciality. For something sweet, we have plenty of cakes and traybakes waiting to tempt you.

We use local suppliers and whenever possible ingredients from our own gardens. The apple, parsnip and fresh sage soup is always a popular choice in autumn.

It's hard to resist a warming bowl of soup this time of year.

When you sit under the 400 year old beams to enjoy a light snack or sweet treat, you're helping us to look after this intriguing property. Every 30 scones sold pays for four hours of intricate repairwork to the 400 year-old wall hanging at East Riddlesden Hall.
