Welcome to the Brewhouse Cafe
Welcome to the Brewhouse Cafe!
The Brewhouse Cafe opened in the spring of 2021 and has been gradually building its offer as the team gets used to the new space. In the spring of 2022 the building was shortlisted in the North East category for the annual Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) prize.
Here you can enjoy a selection of dishes including a seasonal soup of the day, jacket potatoes, a selection of pastries, sandwiches and freshly baked sweet treats. In addition we have a wide range of hot and cold drinks, children's menu and ice creams.
The Brewhouse is open until 4:30pm.
Did you know?
The new Brewhouse café wasn’t always a brewhouse. It started out as a 17th century multi-use agricultural building and pre-dates Seaton Delaval Hall. It is now a rare example of this type of agricultural building and is registered as Grade II listed. The building was repurposed in the mid-18th century as a brewhouse and as a coach house, which included the addition of the decorative red-brick façade. In the 19th century, continuing into the early 20th century, the building was used by a commercial market garden business based in the former walled garden. Edward Astley, the 22nd Baron Hastings, inherited the hall in the mid-1950s and in the 1960s opened the estate to the public. In 1992 he redeveloped the dilapidated building as a coach museum. The building was re-roofed in Welsh slate, a new concrete floor laid and a large opening inserted into the central cross-wall.
