Find out where you can rest and refuel or treat yourself to a book to take home at Berrington. From classic favourites in the café to pre-loved stories in the second-hand bookshop, every penny spent in the café or shop helps us to look after Berrington for future generations.

Old Servants’ Hall tea-room

Come and find some classic favourites in our Edwardian Servants’ Hall tea-room. Choose from homemade cakes and biscuits, scones, one-pots, soup and hot or cold lunches.

Because it’s old, there are a few steps to navigate to reach it. If you need to use the lift, please speak to a member of staff and we’ll be more than happy to help you. There's also seating outside near the courtyard.

When Berrington was originally built in 1775 the Servants’ Hall was used as the Georgian Kitchen and you can still see the original range in place today.

If you're planning a walk, why not ask for your food to be made to take away? Groups can be catered for, but please book in advance so we can reserve your place.

Children’s meals, bottle warming facilities and highchairs are available.

Stables Café - Open busy days and holidays

The perfect place to shelter if you’ve brought your four-legged friend, the converted stables offer a dog-friendly space to enjoy a quiet moment or two and a bite to eat.

We also serve takeaway hot drinks, sandwiches and soup and there’s plenty of space to sit in this historic setting that’s been sympathetically designed to keep as many original features as possible.

On a warm day, grab a fresh Bennetts Farmhouse ice cream and take it to enjoy in a deckchair in the walled garden.

Fresh and seasonal menu

We like to move with the seasons here at Berrington and one way that our tea-room does this is by creating seasonal dishes and puddings for visitors throughout the year.

Wherever possible, we use ingredients grown in the walled garden or locally produced, so the menu is fresh and a little bit different.

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

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 cosy second-hand bookshop can be found in the courtyard behind the mansion. There’s plenty to offer, including retro children's books, gripping novels, fascinating non-fiction and a range of DVDs and CDs.
