Eating and shopping at the Buscot and Coleshill Estates
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.
There are toilets in the Yard, including an accessible toilet with baby-changing facilities.
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.
