Eating and drinking at Tyntesfield

The Cow Barn Café

Set in the Grade II-listed Victorian dairy at Home Farm, the Cow Barn Café is the perfect place to grab some refreshments at the start of your visit, or refuel and relax after exploring the estate.

Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, the café serves a range of hot and cold drinks, lunches and Marshfield Farm ice cream.

The Pavilion Café

For lighter bites, try the Pavilion Café. Please note, though, that it only offers outdoor seating.

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.

Allergen information

Most of the food and drink served is prepared on site in our kitchen, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free.

If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.

Always check when you visit

Visited before? We sometimes change our recipes to improve quality and flavour, including the ingredients. When you visit, please speak to one of our team to check the current allergen information for your favourite dish.

Thank you

Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
