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.

What's on the menu?

We're now taking bookings for Christmas lunch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 17 November to 17 December. 


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 to the menu to give you the chance to stop and watch the bees hard at work.


" 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

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.

Anyone for tea?
