Between 12-2.30pm, treat yourself to lunch. Choose from delicious paninis, seasonal soups, jacket potatoes filled with your favourite toppings, or fill up your belly with our delicious one-pot specials.

Stable Tea Room

In the corner of the orchard near to the house, the Stable Tea Room is usually open at weekends and during school holidays. It's a handy place to stop for a drink or light bites including sandwiches, cakes and ice creams. Take a seat inside the cosy atmosphere of what was once stables built for the sociable Leyland family's many guests, or sit outside in the yard or on the orchard.

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

Getting greener

As part of our commitment to becoming more sustainable at Speke Hall, we’re moving towards replacing plastic bottled drinks with recyclable aluminium cans and bottle alternatives. We also provide paper straws on request and all our disposable packaging are plant based, though we prefer our customers where possible to use reusable crockery and cutlery. Don't forget to bring your own reusable cup to receive a 25p discount on hot drinks.

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."
