Eating at Coughton Court
Tuck in to fresh and seasonal food and afternoon teas in The Coughton Kitchen Cafe. If you are after something lighter you can try the Stables Coffee Bar with delicious ice creams across the courtyard.
The Coughton Kitchen Cafe
The cafe is located in the old Tudor kitchens. Now a place for relaxing with family and friends, this area would once have been a bustling hive of activity with a dedicated team of servants preparing banquets for the Throckmorton family and their guests.
The main eating room housed the huge open fire which would have been used to roast meat, an extravagent option only available to wealthy families who could afford fresh meat, the fuel and a boy to turn the spit all day. The bread ovens can also still be seen in the Café servery.
" As well as serving traditional home cooked meals and cakes baked daily, at Coughton we try to use the best of what grows on our estate."

If you fancy picking up a snack and a quick cuppa try our Stables Coffee Bar
The stables coffee bar and ice cream parlour is situated across the courtyard from the restaurant, and shares a space with our excellent second-hand bookshop. Our range of ice cream comes from Bennet’s Farm in Worcester, a family run business who create excellent quality ice cream. As well as serving firm favourites, we also sell a range of frozen yoghurts (the blackberry is particularly tasty), and more unusual flavours such as banana fudge, morello cherry and lemon meringue.
Indulge in a traditional afternoon tea, between 2.30pm and 4.00pm in our tea room. We serve delicious finger sandwiches, scones and home baked cakes.
Pop into the cafe or ring 01789 400777 ext. 114 to make a booking (bookings must be made 24 hours before arrival). We welcome small groups and private parties. Normal admission applies.
