Eating at Hughenden
Tuck into delicious food prepared in Hughenden's kitchens from hot meals, light snacks and seasonal specials, to tea-time treats and warm scones.
The red brick Victorian stableyard buildings feature our main café, shop, bookshop and toilets, set around a central cobbled yard, a great place to start your visit at Hughenden, or an end point after your explorations.
The café is open every day from 10am-5pm serving a selection of sandwiches, freshly prepared hot food and soup and a range of homemade seasonal cakes, traditional tray bakes and fruit scones for a delicious cream tea.
Bacon and sausage baps are on offer from 10-11.30am for early visitors and hot meals are served from 12-3.00pm. Vegetarian and gluten free options are available and 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 Summer 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.
Our ice cream range features family favourites as well as Jude’s tubs with six varieties to try including honey & ginger, gin & tonic and salted caramel.
There are benches and tables with parasols in the stableyard so you can enjoy the outdoors with your refreshments, and dogs are welcome here too. On busy summer days our extra counter next to the bookshop is open serving drinks and snacks.
Located in the west wing of the Manor house, Dizzy's Tearoom is a quieter place away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy a selection of drinks, sandwiches and cakes. It is open on weekends and bank holidays from 12- 4pm.
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 shade of the trees and enjoy the view over the Hughenden parkland.
