Eating at Goddards

Three women sat at a table set for lunch

A trip to Goddards is only complete once you have eaten in the Terry family’s beautiful dining room.

Time for a treat

Take time out on the terrace

The lavender terrace is a wonderful overspill from the dining room. Relax outside with your refreshments on a warm day or sit in the luxurious drawing room. Enjoy the papers or simply pour yourself a sherry; we just ask for a donation in the pot.

" ...one of the nicest National Trust tea rooms in existence. I would still be sitting there now if I could...the Goddards scone was one of the finest National Trust scones I have ever tasted."

Afternoon tea in style

If you've got a celebration coming up or just plan to treat yourself, relax in the beautiful drawing room or out on the terrace overlooking the gardens with your traditional afternoon tea. 

To book afternoon tea, or if you've got a large group and want to ensure a reservation, please contact the food and beverage team or call 01904 771956 ahead of your visit.

Goddards for hire
