Eating and shopping at Charlecote Park
Take your pick from a choice of places to eat*, drink and shop in the heart of the Charlecote Park estate. Visit the dog-friendly Wood Yard Café or head to the Orangery Restaurant for light bites with a view across the cedar lawn, then pop to the shop for seasonal treats and gifts inspired by the places we look after. *At least one of our three food and beverage outlets will be open each day.
You could start your day at Charlecote in the Orangery Restaurant with a breakfast bap and fresh coffee, or visit at lunchtime to enjoy a delicious hot meal. Take a seat and relax with views out on to the historic cedar lawn. Order from a selection of delicious, seasonal dishes or enjoy a cream tea with someone special. This light and bright building is the perfect spot for take away snacks, light bites, or to sit down with the family over a meal.
Wood Yard Café
The Wood Yard Café is the perfect stop for families and dog walkers, serving hot and cold meals and drinks, sandwiches and light snacks. There's plenty of outdoor seating with some covered benches available.
This fresh space gives a new lease of life to the historic buildings, offering views of Charlecote’s historical working courtyard while you enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake.
On busy days you'll find the kiosk in the Stables Garden open, located next to the service courtyard, serving snacks and treats to go and soft scoop ice creams.
Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
