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 locally reared meats 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 available in children's portions.

You’ll find the baby station with a microwave, bottle warmer, plastic plates, bowls, cutlery, 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.

'Since all things are uncertain - indulge thyself'

We're excited to be selling a new cake special: Pound cake £3.25. We’ve recreated a little slice of heaven by using an original recipe written by one of Stowe’s chefs from a book published in 1807. This yummy cake will taste even better knowing that every penny goes towards the restoration of the gardens and parkland.

Here to help

If you can’t quite find what you’re looking for, or would like some additional help to understand the ingredients in our food for any dietary requirements you have, our team are on hand to give you some help. You’ll find plenty of vegetarian and dairy free food on our main menu. Enjoy our range of freshly home-made cakes and treats.

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.

The King's Head, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire 

Set in the heart of this historic market town, the 15th-century King's Head is one of England's best preserved coaching inns. Dating back to 1455, the building has many fascinating architectural features, including rare stained-glass windows, exposed wattle and daub and the original stabling for the inn. Take a walk in the nearby Chilterns countryside, and afterwards visit the pub for a refreshing drink.
