What's cooking at Wightwick?

Situated in the old garage and stables, our tea-room reflects the working side of the Wightwick estate as well as Mander Brothers paint and varnish manufacturers.

Open from 10.30-5pm during the main season, the Manders' tea-room serves beautiful coffees and exquisite teas. Breakfast rolls are served until 12pm before our range of hot and cold lunches from 12-3pm, not forgetting our wonderful cakes and sweet treats, all prepared on site.

Our menu changes each fortnight with the season, for spring we have options for April showers and May sunshine.


A taste of what might be on the menu

If you're looking for lunch then try warming up with a vegetable & coconut curry or one of our seasonal specials; for example our scrumptious sausage, bubble & squeak served with boozy onion gravy.

After something lighter? Try our Classic B.L.T or legendary Rarebit, all served with salad leaves and rustic coleslaw. We also have different soup everyday so it could be tasty Tuscan bean or fresh and light pea, mint and lettuce. Sitting in the sun? Why not tuck in to our popular and plentiful ploughman’s lunch.

Got a sweet tooth?

Our baker whips up some great cakes; moist and sweet carrot cake, gluten free lime and coconut, or maybe just the classic Victoria sandwich. And it wouldn't be the National Trust without scones (fruit or cheese) or scrummy shortbread and brownie.
