Eating and shopping at Ilam Park, Dovedale and the White Peak
Take a break at Ilam Park and enjoy lunch or a cream tea with stunning views of Thorpe Cloud and the Italian Gardens. There are also options to take away if you fancy a picnic down by the river.
The Manifold tea-room
The Manifold tea-room is ideally situated so that you can take a moment to relax and admire the Italian Garden and sweeping views across Thorpe Cloud and Ilam Church.
You can choose to sit inside or outside with a hot or cold drink, treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake or sample a delicious option from the lunch menu. Be sure to look out for seasonal recipes and daily specials.
Dogs on leads are welcome in the tea-room garden but not inside the tea-room itself – thank you.
When planning your visit please be aware that there are steps leading up into the Manifold tea-room making it unsuitable for wheelchair users.
As an alternative for those that have difficulty accessing the tea-room, there are tables and chairs available in the Stableyard Grab and Go and the team are more than happy to arrange for food from the tea-room to be brought to this area.
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
