Eating and shopping at The Vyne
A hot lunch menu to warm the cockles and light snacks and beverages to keep you going are available in the atmospheric 17th-century Brewhouse. With Fairtrade and sustainability in mind, you'll find a growing collection of ethical gifts in the shop which is well-stocked for Christmas. You might even find a rare copy of your favourite novel tucked away in the second-hand bookshop in the house.
The Brewhouse tea-room
Stepping over the threshold, we’ve got hearty soups and one-pots to stoke you up on a winter’s day. Firm favourites, why not try the coconut hot chocolate or the warming parsnip and ginger cake?
For the holiday season, we've got aromatic mulled wine and non-alcoholic spiced cordial ready to wash down our indulgent mince pies. Alternatively, you can enjoy a sandwich followed by a delicious home-baked cake or cream tea with a fluffy scone, jam, clotted cream and a hot drink. Seating is available inside or in the tea-garden.
The original oak beams and stonework can still be seen inside the 17th-century brewhouse, where hops grown on the estate were made into ale. The cosy interior creates a relaxing place for you to refuel after a walk in the woodlands or tour of the house.
Catering for families
Children's lunch boxes are available. Highchairs are available on request and a microwave is located in the ground floor seating area for warming milk. As the tea-room is rather snug, we kindly ask that you leave buggies and pushchairs outside.
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.
Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
