Seasonal eating and drinking

From snacks and hearty meals to cream teas and award winning brownies, there's plenty to fill those bellies.

 

Cow Barn restaurant - open 10am - 5:30pm (summer time)

Stop for a bite in the stalls of our Victorian cow barn, located in our Grade II listed Home Farm building.

On the menu you will find a range of seasonal dishes - exclusive to Tyntesfield and inspired by the estate's Hispanic story. All your National Trust favourites are there too, including cream teas and cakes, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. 

Vegan and vegetarian options are available - please ask a member of the catering team for more information about any dietary requirements you have.

Inside the Cow Barn restaurant is our indoor play area perfect for keeping our youngest visitors entertained while you can relax with a slice of cake.

Pavilion cafe - 10:30am - 5pm (summer time)

With stunning valley views, the Pavilion café is the ideal place to stop for an afternoon cream tea.  Small, but perfectly formed, it offers a range of hot food including jacket potatoes, sausage rolls, seasonal soup and warm cheese scones.

We haven’t forgotten the little ones, so we offer kids' lunch boxes and serve a variety of cold food, such as sandwiches, yummy cakes and Marshfield ice cream. We also serve hot and cold drinks.

The Pavilion cafe is also right next to our Orchard play area, so you can sit back with a cup of tea while the kids play.

Using local produce

Many of the ingredients we use in our recipes come from the Tyntesfield estate, including wild garlic from the woodland in the spring, wild berries in the summer, and fruit and vegetables from the Kitchen Garden throughout the year.

The produce is freshly picked by our harvesting volunteers and then walked up the drive to our kitchen, less than a mile away. It doesn't get much more local than that!
