Eating and drinking at Stowe

Inside the cafe at Stowe Landscape Gardens

Our kitchen is a creative place and our team will use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. We like to think that our estate reared beef and fresh herbs from the farmhouse garden from Stowe make for a scrummy meal. We source veggies from nearby producers and our New Inn Restoration Ale is made for us by our local Chiltern Brewery.

Tasty treats and family friendly food

A fed family is a happy family and that makes for a great day out in the gardens. Sit down and relax in a comfortable environment and we’ll provide everything you need. On the menu all year round is a healthy children’s pick and mix picnic box or hot food favourites such as fish finger sandwiches, mini pizzas and pasta dishes. Alternatively choose meals of our main menu and we can provide children’s portions too.

We know you're asking the question...Yes we also do the children's fish finger sandwiches in adult portions too. Scrummy.

You’ll find the baby station with a microwave, bottle warmer, plastic plates, bowls, cutlery, colouring sheets, bright wooden toys and books for your family to use. A short distance down the corridor, the baby change toilets are situated in the visitor welcome area.

Seasonal menus

Coaching inns were once the hubbub of the local community, serving hearty food for the workers and visitors alike. The café within the New Inn is keeping this tradition up by regularly bringing you seasonal menus to choose from.
