A hot lunch menu to lift the spirits 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. 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 grey day. 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.

Spring menu

The daily spring menu includes toasties, pick between cheddar cheese and tomato or smoked cheese and ham. We also serve frittata, this can be either goat’s cheese and broccoli or feta and spring pea this can also be made into a main meal with potato salad, coleslaw and salad and sausage rolls. You can also buy sandwiches.

We have a selection of soup and one pot recipes that we alternate between on any given day, please note we’re unable to offer all options daily.

Typical one pot recipes include chilli, lamb stew, vegetable cassoulet & chickpea and potato curry. Soup recipes include wild garlic, spiced carrot and orange, pea and mint & spring vegetable. We also serve jacket potatoes daily.

At weekends we have hotdogs available, wedges and a BBQ pulled pork bap, and BI turnovers which can either be bacon and cheese or sundried tomato and cheese.
