Eating and shopping at Morden Hall Park
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.
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.
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: most paperbacks are £1; most hardbacks, £2. 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.
Donate to the bookshop
Good-condition books and jigsaw puzzles are welcome. We can accept small donations in the bookshop. For larger donations, please email to arrange a mutually convenient time and place to drop off your donation.
