Eating at Melford Hall
Melford Hall tea-room is the ideal place to recharge your batteries after a day looking around the house and garden.
What's on the menu?
After a day of exploring, you might need some refreshment. The tea-room at Melford Hall serves a range of hot and cold drinks, along with homemade cakes and other snacks.
Looking for something more substantial? Grab a light lunch, a sandwich or a sausage roll, all of which can be consumed in the spacious seating 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
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.
Doing our bit for the environment
For most of our disposables, we use Vegware packaging made from plants. This means they're fully compostable. We also accept reusable cups, so bring yours along to help us reduce waste – as a reward, you'll receive 25p off the price of your hot drink.
Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
