Autumn feasts and farming

The harvest season is here and we’re celebrating the best of British food and drink. From trying the fresh, local food in our cafes, cooking up an autumnal recipe at home, to taking part in a food event at one of our special places, there are so many ways to make the most of the season.

Every day, our cafes serve up delicious selection of food and drink. Wherever possible our food is freshly produced on site using carefully sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Many of our café’s and tea-rooms use ingredients grown in our own kitchen gardens and from tenant farms on our estates.
