Eating and shopping at Hardwick
Enjoy a light bite or warming drink in a historic setting, or pick up treats to take away from our restaurant and shop.
Hardwick's Great Barn Restaurant
The restaurant serves a great selection of refreshments. Enjoy hearty breakfast cobs, soup, main meals, light snacks, hot and cold drinks, cakes and scones.
The restaurant is accessed through the main visitor entrance. For non-members there is a small charge of £6 to access this area, it does include car parking and access to our shop, cafe and facilities. There is the option on arrival to upgrade this to the standard admission fee which will also grant access to the Hall and Gardens.
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.
Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
