Eating and drinking at Mompesson House

The garden tea-room

The tea-room serves a range of sweet and savoury treats, including cream teas, soups, sandwiches, salads, cakes and bakes.

After exploring the house and garden, settle down with a cheese scone or a slice of cake, washed down with a choice of a hot or cold drink.

Get cosy inside the old summerhouse or relax with a blanket at a table outside.
