After a walk around the castle, garden and estate you’ll probably have a good appetite. The café has plenty of freshly baked produce to satisfy your hunger. If you’re short on time why not pick up a treat from the shop to take home. Or stay a while for some much-deserved retail therapy.

Castle Café

Selling a great range of hot and cold drinks, soups, sandwiches and a large range of cakes and bakes all made by our resident baker. The café extends to outside with additional seating in the rear courtyard.

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
