Eating at Goddards

Pick up a takeaway for your garden walk or try one of our chocolate orange inspired recipes.

What to expect on your visit

There are a few changes at Goddards this year. 

  • The tearoom is takeaway only with a very reduced offer of hot & cold drinks and bakes. 
  • There are a few seats available on the terrace and around the garden, all indoor areas are closed.
  • We are only able to accept card payments.
  • Open for selected days only, plan your visit and book here.

Plants not plastic

The takeaway packaging you will get your food and drink in are made from a plant based material - not plastic. This makes them fully compostable after they've been used and in turn, this will help future crops grow.

Remember your reusable cup

Every time you present a reusable cup when you order a hot drink at one of our cafes, tea rooms or kiosks*, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used. This promotion replaces the hot drinks loyalty card scheme, which closed in February 2021.

*Discount not guaranteed at food outlets operated by third parties.

If you have an allergy or intolerance 

Most of the food and drink served in our café’s, restaurants and tea-rooms is prepared on site in our kitchens, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free. If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served in our cafés, please ask the café staff who will be happy to help.

Have a go at home

Goddards is the former home of the Terry family, perhaps most well-known for the chocolate orange. Carry on your visit at home and try one of our favourite recipes using these perfectly paired ingredients.
