Treat yourself on a visit to Morden Hall Park - there are plenty of tasty, locally and sustainably sourced treats for you to enjoy. Enjoy breakfast and hot food at the Potting Shed Café, or pop into the dog-friendly Stableyard Café for a quick coffee. Browse the second-hand bookshop to take home a book for someone special, or yourself.

The Potting Shed Café

The Potting Shed Café is open daily, offering sustainably and locally sourced produce, where possible, including vegetables from the kitchen garden next door.

The Stableyard Café

Pop into the dog-friendly Stableyard Café with its tempting array of fresh, home-baked cakes, savouries and hand-scooped ice cream if you fancy treating yourself.

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.

Remember your reusable cup

Every time you present a reusable cup when you order a hot drink at one of the cafés, you’ll get 25p off as a thank-you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used.

Thank you

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

The Stableyard second-hand bookshop

Why not pick up a bargain in the well-stocked second-hand bookshop? Open daily, it’s next to the Stableyard Café in what were once the looseboxes for the estate’s horses.

Here you’ll find everything from beautiful art books to practical cooking and gardening guides, as well as best-selling fiction and children’s books.

Prices are unbeatable: Paperbacks and hardbacks are £2 each (unless stated otherwise). Every book you buy contributes to vital maintenance and conservation work at Morden Hall Park.

In 2019 over 30,000 books were bought, raising over £35,000 which helped fund essential repairs to the park’s iconic clock-tower, which dates from 1867 when the stableyard was built. In 2022 the committed volunteer bookshop team raised £39,000 and in 2023, they raise £43,000. This helped toward projects like new, greener and more efficient LED lights in the Stableyard (including Bookshop, Cafe, Office and Exhibition space), Stableyard Cafe renovation, new and more accessible outdoor furniture for both our cafes, and new and always needed equipment and tools for the Garden & Outdoor Team.

Donate to the bookshop

Good-condition books and jigsaw puzzles are welcome. We are not able to accept encyclopaedias, technical manuals, Readers Digest compilations, magazines, leaflets, videos, CDs, DVDs, vinyl singles, EPs, LPs and books in poor or damaged condition. Small donations can be accepted the bookshop. For larger donations, please email to arrange a mutually convenient time and place to drop off.

Morden Hall Park Garden Centre

Standing on the site of the old kitchen garden is a very well-stocked garden centre offering a range of plants, garden supplies, gifts and treats.

Thank you

It is through your purchases and support that we are able to continue to care for nature, beauty and history for everyone, for ever.
