Eating at Chartwell

Landemare Café

The main café is situated in the car park and can be visited without paying for entry to the house and gardens. In the café you'll find a range of hot and cold food, one pot meals, soups and light snacks. With hot and cold drinks also available, you're sure to find something to satisfy your taste buds. Please note that all items are subject to availability.

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.

Thank you

Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.

Maintaining the views

As Chartwell is known for its views, we do ask that you don't bring your own furniture such as tables and gazebos into the grounds so that everyone can enjoy the open spaces. Instead, please bring a picnic blanket with you.
