Relax in the tea room

A display of cakes and scones

A day out at East Riddlesden Hall isn’t complete without a visit to the tea room, whether you're in the mood for a warm, hearty lunch or a slice of cake and a cup of tea after a stroll around the gardens.

The bothy

Traditionally, a bothy would have provided basic accommodation for estate or farm workers, today it houses the tea room and shop. The tea room is on the first floor, with some tables and seats available on the ground floor for anyone who may struggle with the stairs. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the bothy and tuck into a tasty menu packed with local delights. 

The menu

If you're looking for a tasty and filling lunch, enjoy a range of sandwiches, jacket potatoes and seasonal soups. We've also got some special one pot meals to enjoy, changing with the season, using yummy local ingredients. 

There's also a selection of delicious cakes and traybakes to enjoy, as well as the National Trust classic; scones with jam and clotted cream. Try our signature Riddlesden rascals or tuck into a traditional Victoria sponge cake, washed down with a freshly brewed pot of tea.

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.
