Eating at Hughenden

The red brick Victorian stableyard buildings are home to our café and shop, set around a cobbled yard. Enjoy the fresh air at an outside table or take a seat inside on a wet weather day. Dogs on short leads are welcome here too.

The café is open every day from 10am till 4pm serving a selection of sandwiches and sausage rolls, traybakes and cakes. (Last orders 3.30pm.)

Tuck into sweet treats from cookies and brownies to homemade cakes and traditional tray bakes, all prepared in Hughenden's kitchens.

We use freshly ground beans in our coffees and stock a full range of Clipper teas and the Luscombe range of sparkling fruit drinks, along with Benson’s apple juices. Wall’s ice creams and Jude’s tubs are available all year round for sweet-toothed fans of chill.

We also have children’s portions and kids’ lunchboxes for young explorers to choose their own sandwich, fruit and drink to fuel their adventures.

Seasonal delights

Many of our ingredients are locally sourced and we use own home-grown produce from the walled garden whenever we can. Our menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons but National Trust favourites like cream teas, flapjacks and Victoria sponge are always here.

We make good use of Hughenden's heritage orchard and this harvest time we will have spiced toffee apple cake and chocolate and pear muffins on the menu to celebrate the autumn season.

Takeaway time

All of our drinks and food is available to take away if you prefer to snack and stroll or pick up supplies for a picnic. There are benches amongst the orchard apple trees or find a spot in our pleasure grounds where you can put down a blanket under the shelter of the trees and enjoy the view over the Hughenden parkland on a bright day.

Reusable cups
When you order a hot drink and bring your reusable cup, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment. (This replaces the hot drinks loyalty card scheme, which closed in February.)

Serving you safely

As you enter the stableyard, we've introduced a one-way queueing system for the café. There are protective screens at the till and collection points, and hand sanitiser available. Please pay by card whenever possible. We ask that you wear a face covering here.

If you have dietary requirements you may prefer to come prepared, as menu items vary on any given day. We have a small range of vegan and gluten and dairy-free food available, and soya or oat milk for hot drinks. 

If you have an allergy or intolerance to any ingredients, please let the team know and they will be happy to advise.

Every purchase you make, from coffees to cakes, helps us look after Hughenden. Thank you.
