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.

Every purchase made in the tea-room supports our work

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.
