Eating and shopping at Baddesley Clinton
The barnyard at Baddesley Clinton is home to the restaurant, shop and plant sales. A visit to the shop at Baddesley is a great way to find the perfect gift or take home a reminder of your visit. Or head to the second-hand bookshop for your next read. At the restaurant you can take a seat indoors or outdoors for a hot meal or an ice cream treat.
Eating at Baddesley
You’ll find the restaurant in the barnyard, serving hot and cold food and drinks, including sausage rolls, pasties, sandwiches, cakes, crisps, and confectionery. For those warmer days, we have family favourites such as Magnum, Cornetto, Solero, Mini Milk and individual tubs of locally produced ice cream.
All items are subject to availability.
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.
The cakes and coffees you buy on site put income straight back into conservation; you’re helping us protect and look after Baddesley and the estate. Thank you.
Places to picnic
We love to think of the Quartet, who lived at Baddesley during the Victorian era, packing a basket and heading out in the sunshine to enjoy a picnic in the garden.
You're welcome to picnic in the grounds where it's safe to do so – just watch out for the ducks who’ll expect you to share. We’d recommend one of the picnic tables on the front lawn as the best place to picnic so any little ones can play.
Shopping at Baddesley
Also in the barnyard is the shop, where you'll find year-round inspiration for gifts and souvenirs. Why not treat yourself to beautiful accessories for your home and garden, pick up exclusive Baddesley Clinton tea towels and mugs or browse the selection of cards? You could take home something for tea or your next bake from the range of jams, chutneys and local ales, wines and spirits.
There's a wonderful range of products inspired by the places the National Trust cares for, with patterns of much-loved landscapes or objects from past times. For your little ones there are plenty of items perfect for children of all ages, from books to toys that will get them exploring in the great outdoors.
In the barnyard in front of the main shop is the plant sales area. All the plants are grown in peat-free compost - some of them by our own gardens team. You will also find a selection of pots and decorative items for your garden. But mostly you'll be able to take home seasonal blooms galore to help you brighten up your own space.
Baddesley’s second-hand bookshop
There are hundreds of books to buy in the second-hand bookshop, whether you're searching for the perfect holiday read, a long forgotten classic or a bedtime story filled with adventure.
The origins of the Baddesley bookshop stem back to more than 15 years ago when an enthusiastic reader and regular visitor left his ‘library’ of books to the Trust here at Baddesley.
The Baddesley second-hand bookshop was born, and from there book donations began to arrive steadily. There’s a full range of books, from science and medieval history to cookbooks and gardening. There’s sure to be something for everyone’s taste and many of them are as good as new.
