Whether you’re looking for a drink to go, a light lunch with friends, or a gift to take home, we’ve got it covered. From the Stables Shop to the Carriage House Café, every penny you spend goes back into looking after Attingham Park for future generations to enjoy.

Eating and drinking sustainably

Food and drink will be served with café crockery if you're eating or drinking at the café. Takeaways come in plant-based disposable tableware, all of which is composted or recycled.

Every time you present a reusable cup when you order a hot drink at one of the cafés, tea rooms or kiosks*, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used. This promotion replaces the previous hot drinks loyalty card scheme.
