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.

" ...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."
- National Trust scone blogger

What's on the menu?

From seasonal salads and quiches to our popular scones and chococlate orange cake. Throughout July try the Terry's of York influenced chocolate orange scone.

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.

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?
