Places to eat at Shugborough

You’re spoilt for choice between Park Farm café and the mansion tea-room at Shugborough. Both the café and tea-room serve hot meals, hot and cold drinks and freshly baked cakes and biscuits.

Mansion tea-room

Step inside the mansion tea-room and treat yourself to a hearty breakfast or a tasty meal. The tea-room is located right by the shop and second-hand bookshop and has a children’s menu for little explorers.

Park Farm café

At the other end of the estate is Park Farm café. Stop off on your dog walks and grab a light bite, jacket potato, homemade treat and a drink, right in the heart of the farmyard. Dogs are welcome inside – there may even be a treat waiting for them too.

For families

We know a quick stop off for a snack or a space to sit down for lunch is an all-important part of a visit. You’ll find highchairs, children’s plates, bibs and cutlery in both our café and tea-room.

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
