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

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 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


" 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."
