From breakfast to lunch or afternoon tea, we've got everything on the menu in the tea-room. Enjoy a drop of Croft wine, produced from our very own vineyard which is lovingly managed by our garden volunteers in our licensed tea-room.
Take away a snack as you head off into the park or come after your walk and enjoy our new indoor glazed seating area; you can still bring your dog in with you to enjoy your meal away from the elements.
What's on the menu?
Our tea-room serves a menu of seasonal hot and cold lunches every day to suit every taste using seasonal ingredients from our gardens as much as possible.
Choose from freshly made soup of the day and sandwiches or one of our cooked lunches. Hot lunches are served most days from 12noon to 3pm, and we always include a vegetarian option.
For your sweet tooth
We serve an irresistible choice of freshly made cakes and desserts. We've got everything from chocolate tiffin and lemon drizzle to seasonal fruit pavlova and autumn crumbles complete with fresh cream or custard.
So whether it's a treat with your morning coffee or a full afternoon tea we will have something to tempt you (and plently of parkland to walk it off).
From plot to plate
Did you know that nearly all of the fruit, salad and vegetables served in the Carpenters tea-room are grown in our very own walled garden?
You can ask a member of the team what we're using each week or look out for our seasonal board near the counter.
Treat yourself to a tipple, or two
Ask for a glass of Croft wine with your meal. With a choice of red or white wine, Croft wine or local real ales and ciders you're sure to find the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
You can choose to just have a glass or order a bottle of wine; just ask a member of our catering team who will be happy to help.
Something to celebrate?
The tea-room can be booked between 10am and 5pm, Monday to Friday from November to February, if you want to celebrate with a Christmas, birthday or anniversary meal for your work party or family and friends.
