Things are a little different at the moment

Due to issues beyond our control, you may find certain menu items aren't available or choice may vary throughout the week. We really appreciate your patience while we work with our suppliers and we're very sorry if this affects your visit.

Please speak to a member of our restaurant team if you don't see what you're looking for and we'll be happy to discuss alternative menu options. Thank you for your support.

What's on the menu?

Sausage rolls


Visiting us in the morning? Pop by to tuck in to an egg, sausage or bacon brioche barm, available until 12pm while stocks last, or try a pasty or sausage roll. For something lighter, try our seasonal soup of the day. Wash it down with a morning brew or coffee of your choice, or choose from a range of cold drinks.

Mozzarella, basil and tomato panini.


Between 12-2.30pm, treat yourself to lunch. Choose from delicious paninis, seasonal soups and jacket potatoes filled with your favourite toppings such as cheese and beans, or fill up your belly with our delicious one-pot specials. For families, you can pick up a special kids lunchbox that will please even the pickiest of tastebuds.

Cheshire Farm ice cream kiosk

At Home Farm, you'll also find our ice cream kiosk where we're serving award-winning Cheshire Farm ice creams in a range of delicious flavours, as well as refreshing sorbets. The kiosk is just a few metres from the play area so it's the perfect place to stop for a pre- or post-playtime treat.

Staying safe 

Our cafés and food outlets continue to prioritise the health and safety of staff, volunteers, suppliers and visitors. Face coverings are not required in our cafés and tea-rooms but we recommend that they are worn in enclosed and crowded areas. We'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and stick to our high standards of cleanliness.

We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Getting greener

As part of our commitment to becoming more sustainable at Speke Hall, we’re moving towards replacing plastic bottled drinks with recyclable glass options. We’re also using paper straws and all our disposable Vegware drinks cups and lids are completely biodegradable - you can even compost them! Out in the gardens and grounds, we use peat-free compost and produce lots of our own fruit and vegetables in the Kitchen Garden, which is then used in dishes in the restaurant. That's about 100 yards from plot to plate.

" We have been visiting Speke Hall as a family for the past seven years, at least once a week. It is a place for us to relax and we find it very stimulating for our daughter who is severely disabled. We really look forward to caching up with the team on our visits, they consistently go above and beyond for my family, often reserving a table during busy periods to accommodate Alicia’s wheelchair, enabling us to enjoy a stress-free day out. It means the world to us: there are not as many places as you might think that can offer this level of service, understanding and warm welcome."
