Coffee and cake after a good walk

Relax at Washington Old Hall cafe

Tucked away within the grounds, you'll find the café. It's quaint and ideal for meeting with friends and family, or perhaps to re-fuel after an adventure. You can choose from leek and potato, tomato and basil, parsnip and chilli or carrot and coriander soup. There are also delicious homemade scones and other sweet treats, alongside hot and cold drinks.
