As you arrive from the main car park you'll see the Coffee Shop, a great place to buy hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks to take away. There are delicious sausage rolls, freshly made sandwiches, cakes and scones and hot light lunches.
Dogs are welcome in the coffee shop and there are seats both inside and outside.
In the Café at Polesden Lacey you'll find our full menu, with a variety of hot and cold dishes including unique dishes that reflect the spirit of Polesden Lacey. We also have a range of delicious cakes and classic cream teas. There are plenty of indoor tables as well as an outdoor seating area.
Inside the grounds
You'll find another area where you can buy hot and cold drinks, as well as snacks and cakes, by Admiral's Walk. There are also picnic benches here, swings and a small play area.
Our menu is inspired by what’s growing in our kitchen garden and seasonal produce in our local countryside, from fresh spring veg and summer fruits to hearty soups and festive flavours as the days grow colder.
Wherever possible, we use fruit and veg grown in the gardens which is sown, nurtured and harvested by our fantastic garden volunteers. That means our menu isn't just seasonal, it has a low carbon foot print too. We buy delicious meat from our tenant farmer, Steve Connisbee who was the winner of the 'Farming with Nature' award in 2018.
Most of the food and drink served in our café’s, restaurants and tea-rooms is prepared on site in our kitchens, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free. If you have an allergy or intolerance, please ask the café staff who will be happy to advise on the ingredients in your food and drink.
We love sustainably-produced, local and seasonal food, and we've got some great recipes to prove it. Whether you’re looking to bake, roast, slow cook, forage or simply chuck everything in one pot and cross your fingers, we've got you covered with our National Trust Cookbook recipes.
From inspiration for your next showstopper to trying your hand at recipes from eras past or foraging in the wilderness for the freshest ingredients, discover the tastiest treats the season has to offer.
