Eating and shopping at Little Moreton Hall
Need some refreshment during your visit to Little Moreton Hall? Head to one of the cosy tea-rooms for a meal or treat; or, if the sun's shining, why not enjoy your food in the orchard or borrow a picnic blanket and sit on the lawn? Afterwards, pick up a literary gem from the pre-loved bookshop to read on your journey home.

Fancy a bite to eat? Then head to the Little Tea-Room, which offers a variety of sandwiches, cakes, scones and soup. Enjoy your food in either the tea-room itself or the garden.
Mrs Dale's Tea-Room

Enjoy your food and drink in natural surroundings by grabbing one of the seats in the orchard. If there aren't any available, just ask to borrow a picnic blanket.
