After a walk around the Lanhydrock estate, you’ll probably be feeling quite peckish. The Park Café and Courtyard Cafe are open daily and offer a range of freshly-made meals and snacks to satisfy your hunger.

Eating and drinking at Lanhydrock

The Park Café is open daily, serving drinks, light meals and snacks and offers both indoor and outdoor seating.

The Park Café

Situated next to the visitor car park and cycle hire facilities, The Park Café is a handy refuelling spot for visitors making the most of the bike trails through the woodland. It's also a fabulous place to come for a chat over lunch or a barista-made coffee and a slice of homemade cake.

The café offers a range of tasty options to suit your dietary requirements.

Courtyard Café

Found next to the house, the Courtyard Café is a great place to have a break while you're exploring the three routes around the house or wandering around the formal garden. Situated in the old stables, this cosy café serves barista-made hot drinks, cakes and light lunches.

The café offers a range of tasty options to suit your dietary requirements.

Green eating

We aim to be sustainable, so our take-out cups, lids and sandwich packaging (including film and liner) are 100 per cent compostable and made from plant material.

Dog friendly

Walking your dog around the Lanhydrock estate can be hungry and thirsty work. Stop off for a snack or drink at The Park Café with your pet. You'll find drinking bowls to keep your pooch happy.

So that everyone can enjoy the Park Cafe, we ask that all dog owners ensure that their furry friends:

  • Are kept on their lead
  • Keep four paws on the floor
  • Sit safely under the table
  • Feed and water outside
  • We know it's fun to bark, but please bark outside

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.
