Eating at Dudmaston Hall

The orchard tea-room at Dudmaston serves a range of hot and cold drinks, scones, cakes and light lunchtime snacks. Limited indoor seating is available and there's plenty of outdoor seating in the orchard too. Dogs on leads are welcome to sit at the outdoor tables in the orchard.

The Café in Comer Woods

The café in Comer Woods is the perfect stop-off for refreshments during a walk in the woods. From the car park, follow the signs for Heath Meadow, it's just a few minutes' walk. The café serves hot and cold drinks, and a selection of traybakes and ice creams are available to take away too.

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
