Spring treats in Uppark's Café

Situated in the east pavilion, and the site of the old orangery, our café offers great food with stunning views across the South Downs. It is the perfect place to relax and treat yourself to our tempting spring menu.

The café opens from 10am daily and serves hot food until 3pm.  Our menu changes every two weeks so there will always be something new for you to try when you visit.  We have both breakfast and lunch available every day as well as homemade cakes and hot drinks.

Our breakfast includes tasty treats like the 'Big Breakfast' sandwich and toast and marmalade.  Yours to enjoy every day 10-11.45am.

Our light lunch menu includes a choice of two soups and a variety of freshly-made sandwiches: why not try an open sandwich of Isle of Wight blue cheese with butternut squash chutney?  If you fancy something more substantial, amongst our delicious main meals are vegetarian quiche and chicken casserole.  Stop by on a Sunday for a seasonal roast or a healthy and hearty vegan chickpea sausage roll.

For those with a sweet tooth, we have a great selection of homemade cakes and tray bakes. Try spiced orange muffins, toffee apple cake or a classic fruit scone washed down with a freshly brewed coffee or one of our speciality teas, all served on china.

Every penny spent in our café goes straight back to Uppark to help with vital conservation work. Last year our visitors bought over seven thousand scones and drank eight thousand cups of tea, all helping us look after Uppark for future generations to enjoy.
