Our menu

Treat yourself to a cuppa and a tasty treat. Looking for something more substantial? How about a light lunch or a sandwich; a sausage roll and a snack. We also have a great selection of homemade cakes and biscuits, and for a special treat why not indulge yourself with an ice cream? 

If you’d like to stay a while enjoy your lunch in the courtyard garden sampling the simple pleasures this space has to offer. There are conveniences available to those tea room customers who use the garden or the indoor seating area.

The tearoom is open from 10.30am to 4.00pm, from 30 Thursday July and thereafter every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; (closed Mondays and Tuesdays).

Scone of the month 

Keep an eye out for the return of our scone of the month. Each month our talented kitchen team creates a new scone recipe on sale in the tea room to surprise our regular visitors. In the past, these have included both sweet and savoury versions, so be sure to keep an eye out and perhaps even suggest your own original combinations!

Doing our bit for the environment

Due to Coronavirus we are using takeaway cups and crockery to ensure the safety of our staff. At the National Trust we use Vegware packaging made from plants for many of our disposables, which means they're fully compostable.
