Where to eat and drink at Anglesey Abbey

Buying refreshments on site

You’ll find hot and cold drinks, snacks and light meals at Redwoods Restaurant.

Bringing a picnic

Weekends and holidays can often be busy, but you're welcome to bring a picnic which can be enjoyed anywhere in the garden, except in formal areas.

Eating with little ones

If you're visiting with children, why not pick up a kids' lunchbox, which comes with sandwiches, snacks, fruit and a drink? We serve babyccinos, too, for when your little explorers need warming up.

If you buy a drink using your own reusable cup, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment.

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.

Second-hand bookshop

From literary classics and modern fiction to fascinating art and history tomes, the second-hand bookshop at Anglesey Abbey is home to some great bargains. Why not pop in and have a look during your visit? Thanks to second-hand book lovers, last year we raised £16,000 which went directly towards conservation projects which help us care for Anglesey Abbey.

Funds raised from our second-hand bookshop support conservation projects that help to care for the house, gardens and estate, making sure they continue to thrive. They also help us to look after wildlife and nature too, and the places they call home.

Got any good-quality books that you don't want any more? If so, we'd love to take them off your hands.

We're particularly interested in children's books, so please bring them with you during your visit, or call in if you're passing by. If you have a large amount of books to donate, please either send us a direct message on our social channels or email us to arrange a drop-off time.

Thank you

It is through your purchases and support that we are able to continue to care for nature, beauty and history for everyone, for ever.
