Eating at Mottisfont

Visitor eating a scone

The Coach House Café and Kitchen Garden refreshment kiosk are open daily. We're serving up hot and cold drinks, home-made bakes, sandwiches, snacks and light lunches.

The Coach House Café is open every day from 10am-5pm (last orders 4.45pm). Hot food is served from 12noon-2.30pm. Located in the Stables, the Coach House serves hot and cold drinks, hot snacks, sandwiches, soup, casseroles and sweet treats. This café is very accessible for families, with seating both indoors and outside.

We're also serving up takeaway snacks and drinks from the refreshment kiosk in the Kitchen Garden from 10am. This will remain open until 7.30pm during our extended opening hours for rose season (Mondays - Saturdays, 30 May - 2 July). Jude's ice cream horsebox will be open on busy days, if weather permits.

What to expect

Our cafés are being affected by staff shortages and delays in the supply chain, like many others in the food industry. We're operating a more limited offer than you may be used to, to ease pressure on our teams and make sure we're providing the best service we can with fewer resources. The Old Kitchen Café is temporarily closed, and the Coach House menu focuses on visitor favourites such as cakes, bakes and hot drinks, alongside light meal options. We'll return to a larger menu as soon as we're able to do so.

We have a small range of gluten and dairy-free food available, and soya or oat milk for hot drinks. The team will be happy to talk through any allergen information.

Our food and beverages are served in plant-based disposables, all of which are composted or recycled. If you can bring your own re-usable cup, you can take advantage of a 25p discount on your hot beverage.
