Places to eat:

King's River Café is currently serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and a one way system through the building. In line with government guidelines, you'll be required to wear a face covering whilst inside. To limit the number of people inside we are asking for a maximum of two members of each group to enter the building and we are also allowing assistance dogs only at this time. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Bringing a picnic
Sunny days and bank holidays can be busy, however you’re always welcome to bring a picnic. We have a choice of two picnic spots- one is located near the car park whilst for adventurers one is on our River View walk with spectacular views over the River Deben.

Something for everyone
We offer a selection of snacks for vegetarians and gluten and dairy free options, so there’s something for everyone.

If you have an allergy or intolerance, please let us know. Whilst we do our best, we can’t guarantee that any of our dishes are totally allergen free. We’d love to help you with your choice by telling you about our ingredients.

Doing our bit for the environment
At the National Trust we use Vegware packaging made from plants for our disposables, which means that our takeaway cups and lids are fully compostable. 

Where our food comes from
Today the National Trust is the UK’s biggest farmer, looking after over 600,000 acres of farmland with our tenant farmers. Whether it’s for the Bensons juices in your glass or the butter you put on your scones, we require all our farmers to use nature friendly farming techniques. For things we can’t produce ourselves we apply these same regulations to all our suppliers too.
