The Pantry Café

Our grab and go Pantry Café is open on sunny days during the summer. Located next to visitor reception, it’s perfect if you’re looking to grab a drink on arrival, want to pick up a snack or sandwich, or simply treat yourself to an ice-cream.

Eating with us

Eating with little ones

We offer children’s lunch boxes, which consist of a sandwich, Pom Bears, a piece of fruit and a carton of juice. We also offer half portions of the main meals on our menu in the tea-room, where there is a collection of games that families can play whilst you wait for your food. High chairs are available.

Bringing a picnic

Sunny days and bank holidays can be busy, however you’re always welcome to bring a picnic. You'll find picnic benches in an area close to the car-park, or you can picnic in the grounds where you can laze in a deckchair, whilst the kids enjoy playing with the outdoor games. Why not pop into the Pantry Café when you arrive and pick up everything you need for later?

If you have an allergy or intolerance, please let us know 

Food made here in our busy kitchen is made using a wide range of ingredients. Whilst we do our best, we can’t guarantee that any of our dishes are totally allergen free. We’d love to help you with your choice by telling you about our ingredients. Please speak to a member of our team when you visit.

Dogs are welcome 

We know dogs are part of the family too. So if you’re visiting during the summer, then head to the Pantry Café, where you’ll be able to enjoy a drink and something to eat with your dog. Don’t worry if the café isn’t open, on these days, dogs and well behaved owners are welcome inside the Servants Hall Tea-Room. 

Doing our bit for the environment

At the National Trust we use Vegware packaging made from plants for our disposables, which means that our takeaway cups and lids are fully compostable, low carbon and completely free from plastic. We also sell reusable bamboo cups, or you can bring your own and receive a 25p discount off your next hot drink with us. 

Where our food comes from

Today the National Trust is the UK’s biggest farmer, looking after over 600,000 acres of farmland with our tenant farmers. Whether it’s for the Bensons juices in your glass or the butter you put on your scones, we require all our farmers to use nature friendly farming techniques. For things we can’t produce ourselves we apply these same regulations to all our suppliers too.
