If your adventures around Buscot and Coleshill have left you in need of refreshment, there are several options to choose from. There’s lunch at the Blake's Kitchen, cream teas and more at Buscot Tea-room or a pint in the Radnor Arms. And you can even pick up some reading material at the second-hand bookshop.

The Old Carpenters Yard and Canteen

A hub for visitors preparing to explore the estates, or in need of a break, the Old Carpenters Yard in Coleshill is home to Blake's Kitchen.

It serves a selection of cakes and savouries, sandwiches and hot food to order, and has a large, dog-friendly outdoor seating area.

Second-hand bookshop and visitor information

There’s also the Wheelwright second-hand bookshop, the visitor information room and the Old Timber Store, where you can see photos showcasing traditional skills and a display of carved timber from the estate. 

Accessible toilets

There are toilets in the Yard, including an accessible toilet with baby-changing facilities.

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

Tea-room in Buscot village

The sign says Buscot Village Shop but the front of the building is a quaint tea-room, serving homemade cakes, cream teas and ice-cream, as well as more substantial meals. There’s indoor and outdoor seating so dogs are welcome.

The Radnor Arms pub

This cosy country pub in Coleshill offers short lunch and dinner menus featuring locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

The restaurant is small, so booking is recommended, and opening times may vary, so it’s best to call ahead.

Coleshill Organics farm shop

Just opposite the Radnor Arms, at Coleshill’s walled garden, is this farm shop selling organic veg and free-range organic eggs.

Tea-room update

The tea-room at Buscot’s manor house is open 2.00pm to 5.30pm on days that the house is open.
