Knole’s brewhouse has been an important part of the estate since the 17th century. It originally only produced ale and beer but it is now home to the Brewhouse Café.

The Brewhouse Café is the perfect place to sit and soak up Knole’s historic atmosphere over a drink and a bite to eat. An important part of the estate since the 17th century, it was the original site of the estate’s beer and ale production, but now you’ll find that the range has broadened - try our range of snacks, hot meals and hot and cold drinks (including beer and ale).

Relax on the rooftop terrace

With more than 1,000 acres of parkland and home to a wild deer herd, Knole’s estate offers many beautiful views. One of the best vistas can be enjoyed from the Brewhouse Café’s rooftop terrace, where you can take in the views while enjoying a leisurely lunch or simply sit and watch the deer go by with a glass of your favourite beverage.

Picnic in the park

Visitors are always welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in Knole's 1,000 acre park, although we ask that you do not feed the deer. We recommend enjoying your picnic in the enclosed outdoor seating area, located close to the car park, to avoid being interrupted by the deer.

Christmas in the Brewhouse

Christmas in the Brewhouse is a cosy, festive affair, with its ancient walls decorated for the season. Enjoy warming soups, light lunches, and a delicious selection of cakes including our very special mince pies. The Brewhouse will be serving traditional Christmas lunches during the festive season with roast turkey and all the trimmings.
