Eating at Hughenden

Tuck into delicious food prepared in Hughenden's kitchens from hearty main meals and light snacks, to tea-time treats and hot drinks.

The red brick Victorian stableyard buildings feature our main café, shop, bookshop and toilets, set around a listed cobbled yard. There are tables with parasols in the stableyard so you can enjoy the outdoors with your refreshments, whatever the weather, and dogs are welcome here too.

Stableyard Café

The café is open every day from 10am-5pm serving a selection of sandwiches, freshly prepared food and a range of homemade seasonal cakes, traditional tray bakes and cream teas. We also have children’s portions and kid's lunchboxes that allow young explorers to choose their own sandwich, fruit and drink to fuel their adventures.

Breakfast baps are on offer from 10-11.30am and, hot meals are served from 11.30-3pm. Afternoon Tea with finger sandwiches, dainty cakes and scones is available on weekdays by booking 24 hours in advance on 01494 755573.

We use freshly ground coffee beans and stock a full range of Clipper teas and the Luscombe range of sparkling fruit drinks, along with Benson’s apple juices.

Many of our ingredients are locally sourced 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.

Dizzy’s Tearoom 

In the west wing of the Manor is Dizzy's Tearoom, a quieter place away from the hustle and bustle where you can enjoy a selection of drinks, sandwiches and cakes. Open during school 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 bright day.
