Eating at Hughenden

Tuck into delicious food prepared in Hughenden's kitchens from hot meals, light snacks and winter specials, to festive tea-time treats and spiced mulled wine.

The red brick Victorian stableyard buildings feature our main café, shop, bookshop and toilets, set around a listed cobbled yard, a great place to start your visit at Hughenden, or an end point after your explorations.

Stableyard Café

The café is open every day from 10am-4pm serving a selection of sandwiches, freshly prepared hot food and soup and a range of homemade seasonal cakes, traditional tray bakes and fruit scones.

Bacon and sausage baps are on offer from 10-11.30am for early visitors and hot meals are served from 12-2.30pm. Children’s portions from our menu are on offer, or the kid's lunchbox allows young explorers to choose their own sandwich, fruit and drink to fuel their adventures.

We source many of our ingredients locally and use our own home-grown produce from the walled garden whenever we can. Our menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons with favourites like Victoria sponge always here: Hughenden cafe menu (PDF / 0.2MB) download

Our baristas can prepare a range of coffees from freshly ground coffee beans, delicious hot chocolates and we have a full range of Clipper teas. Soya milk is available at no extra charge. We stock the Luscombe range of sparkling fruit drinks including elderflower, lemonade and rosewater, along with Benson’s apple juices with raspberry and rhubarb.

There are benches and tables with parasols in the stableyard so you can enjoy the outdoors with your refreshments, whatever the weather, and dogs are welcome here too.

Dizzy’s Tearoom 

Located in the west wing of the Manor house, Dizzy's Tearoom is a quieter place away from the hustle and bustle where you can enjoy a selection of drinks, sandwiches and cakes. Open on weekends and bank holidays from 12- 3pm.

Time for a picnic

Or why not pick up supplies from the Café for a picnic in our apple orchard? There are benches amongst the apple trees to use 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 crisp, dry day.
