Whether you’ve been exploring the garden, admiring the house or running in the park at Osterley, there’s sure to be something to tempt you in the café. For everything from hot meals to light snacks and ice cream head to the Tudor courtyard, where you’ll also find the well-stocked shop and second-hand bookshop.

Stables Café

The cafe is located at the centre of the Stables Courtyard and serves breakfast, hot main meals and light snacks alongside cakes and bakes. Much of the menu is handmade from scratch, often with organic produce from the Tudor walled garden, and this has been recognised with a bronze Food for Life award from the Soil Association.

The seasons are reflected in the changing menus but favourites such as Victoria sponge, soups and jacket potatoes are always available.

Seating is available inside, outside the front in the courtyard and in the secluded walled terrace to the back.

Brewhouse Café and ice cream parlour

Tucked in a bright corner of the stables, the Brewhouse Café sits in the Tudor brewhouse, where ale and beer would be brewed for those who lived and worked at Osterley Park.

As a nod to the past, we work with Scotney Castle, Kent – the only working hop farm in the National Trust – to offer a range of beers, from pale ales to bitters, to drink in or take home.

Today this large room is a grab-and-go café, serving cake, treats and barista coffees. Brunch is a favourite with our regulars, whether as a well-earned treat after a parkrun or just because it’s the weekend. In the summer you'll find the Brewhouse as a pop-up ice cream parlour, serving delicious ice cream by the cone or tub.

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.
