The Café at Hinton Ampner

Our café is the perfect place to relax and satisfy your taste buds during your visit.

The café is housed in one of the oldest buildings on the estate and was formerly a stable.  Over the years it has had various uses including being the village Social Club.  Historically a hub of activity, our café is no different today.

No trip to Hinton Ampner would be complete without a slice of homemade cake and a pot of freshly brewed tea in our splendid café .  Both hot and cold food is served from 12noon until 2:30pm with snacks and both sweet and savoury scones freshly baked throughout the day. With home made food prepared and cooked onsite, how can you resist?

From plot to plate

Our veg doesn’t have far to travel as it comes over from our Walled Garden.  Straight into our kitchen, delicious salads, soups and sandwiches are prepared with our meat also being locally sourced.

Our chefs make all our food fresh and cater for vegetarians as well as producing gluten free rolls and scones and soya milk - there's something for everyone.

The fully licensed café also sells a variety of local ales and a range of wines.
