Hinton Ampner café

Cheese scones in a baking tray at a National Trust property

Our café is the perfect place to pick up a refreshing drink, homemade cake, scrumptious savoury snack or homemade bake. The café is set in the Old Stables next to the main mansion.

Eating with us

Our café has reopened to serve our visitors. The offer will be limited but will include hot and cold drinks, snacks, light lunches as well as homemade bakes and cakes. All of our café food and drink is served on plant based disposable tableware, which can be recycled or composted. We currently aren’t offering any seating or tables. There are plenty of benches and lawn areas which you are welcome to use. We recommend bringing your own picnic rug or foldable chair. There are many open spaces around Hinton Ampner where you can find the perfect picnic spot.

What's on offer

Drinks

We are serving a range of hot and cold drinks. Hot drinks are made to order, with a wide range of teas and coffees available. We are currently unable to serve hot drinks in re-useable cups. However, the cups we do use are made from plants, not plastics and can be composted after use. At the moment, we are also unable to stamp hot drink loyalty cards. If you are looking for something a little cooler, our selection of cold drinks includes the delicious Luscombe’s organic fruit drinks as well as everyday fizzy favourites and children’s cartons.

Food

We are serving a range of hot and cold snacks as well as traditional homemade cakes. Hot baguettes, sandwiches and jacket potatoes are made to order available with a range of fillings. Sausage rolls and pasties are freshly baked each day on site. Our vegan pasty is particularly popular which showcases a curried cauliflower filling. We are also serving homemade soups made with produce from our Walled Garden such as our courgette, onion & potato soup.

Our café team have also been baking up a storm producing a daily selection of homemade cakes and bakes. You’ll find all of your National Trust favourites as well as something different such as our homemade autumn bakes. Some of our property specials include fig & honey loafcake and a spiced plum bake. Sweet and savoury cream teas are also available with delicious jams and clotted cream.

 

Visiting us

Things will look a little different to before. We have made a one way system so that people can queue safely. The order area is one in, one out and customers pay and collect their order all at the same time. There will be a screen between visitors and café staff. We also have hand sanitiser available for everyone to use. We are currently only taking card payments on site. These measures are in place to help keep everyone safe. If you have any concerns a member of our friendly team will be able to help you when you visit.
