About our courtyard café
You will always find a friendly welcome at our courtyard café. Choose from a range of sandwiches, bacon rolls, soup, crisps and cakes. We also have a wide selection of hot and cold drinks available, including our 100% Fairtrade coffee.

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available – 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. 

If you need something cool and refreshing after a walk around the estate, why not treat yourself to an ice lolly? We now stock Magnum Vegan Classic ice creams, delicious and velvety plant based ice cream without the dairy ingredients.

Bone appétit – four legged friends are catered for too!
Doggy drinking bowls and hitching posts are provided around the courtyard café and visitor centre. We are happy for you to bring you dog on a lead into the shop, where they can choose themselves a tasty treat. They can also join you as you choose a drink or bite to eat for yourself in the café.

Bringing a picnic
Sheringham Park was the East Anglian regional winner of the 2018 best picnic places award, thanks to our 1000 acres of beautiful parkland and abundance of wildlife. You’ll find picnic benches in an area close to the car-park, or you can take your pick of stunning locations throughout the grounds.
