Eating

Houghton Mill tea room 

Our tea room reopens on Monday 6 July and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We've introduced new safety measures including the closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We'll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you'll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Helping you eat out 

From 3 August you'll be able to get 50 per cent off your bill, up to a maximum of £10 per person on food and drink bought at and consumed at our café (excluding alcoholic drinks), through the government's Eat Out to Help Out Scheme. The scheme applies from Monday to Wednesdays only and ends on 31 August.
