Treat yourself and dine at Goddards

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

Time for a treat

Drop in for a spot of light lunch, enjoy a refreshing drink, or treat yourself to one of our home-made specialities. Indulge in a steaming hot bowl of soup or a full hot meal, then finish off your meal with our signature chocolate orange cake.

What's on the menu?

The menu includes imaginative daily specials using seasonal ingredients. Enjoy table service from the friendly staff for a delicious lunch or a freshly-baked slice of cake and a scone. After wandering the house and garden, it's the perfect spot to take a moment and re-hydrate.

Take time out on the terrace

The lavender terrace is a wonderful overspill from the dining room. Relax with your refreshments and as the sun comes out, we'll add G&Ts and Pimms to the menu to give you the chance to stop and watch the bees hard at work.

Afternoon tea in style

For a special occasion, the tiered afternoon tea is a popular choice and can be pre-booked. Take your tea in the luxurious drawing room, relax with the papers or simply pour yourself a sherry.
