The Kitchen Café at Hatchlands Park
You can find our cosy Kitchen Café at the top of the cobbled courtyard close to the house, in spaces originally occupied by the house kitchens. Drop by for hot food, delicious cakes and cream teas made fresh on site each day. Hot food is served from 11.30pm until 2.30pm each day.
The Kitchen Café is where you can find the majority of our hot lunches. Enjoy hot and wholesome soups and stews, light bites including sandwiches, freshly baked sausage rolls and our traditional scones. With new and tasty recipes for every season, our resident cook bakes cakes and makes sandwiches on site every day so you’ll always be able to enjoy a fresh, healthy and tasty selection.
At the Kitchen Café you can enjoy:
- a selection of sandwiches on white or brown bread
- hot paninis made to order
- one pot stews and casseroles
- soup of the day with bread
- filled jacket potatoes
- home made cakes and tray bakes
- traditional cream teas

- hot drinks – coffees, a selection of teas, hot chocolate
- cold drinks – mineral water, juices, soft drinks, beer, wine

All of the takeaway packaging we use is made from plants and not plastic. However, if you’ve brought your own reusable sustainable cup with you, then we’re always very happy to fill it with your hot drink of choice. If you haven’t got yours yet then you can find a range of bamboo ecoffee cups and homeware in our shop.
Although dogs are not allowed inside the Kitchen Café, they are very welcome to sit with you outside by the tables provided in the courtyard. You’ll also find water bowls for your four-legged friends outside. If you’d like to sit indoors with your dog then please head to the Coach House Café a little further down the courtyard.
Our Kitchen Café is open 363 days a year, 7 days a week, from 11am until 5pm. These extended opening times mean that, whenever you visit us for a walk in the park, our café will always be open to welcome you in and warm you up.
Pack a picnic
Looking to avoid the crowds and queues? Why not bring your own food. There are picnic areas with benches provided all over the parkland so you'll be able to find a seat away from the service tables in the busy courtyrad. Alternatively, you can just throw a rug down on the lawn and enjoy your home-made treats in the spectacular surroundings.
Although the surroundings are historic, we want to offer you the best of the modern world too. You'll find reliable and easy to use Wi-Fi in our café. Whenever you visit, you’ll be able to get online with your laptop, tablet or smartphone, completely free of charge.
