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 10am-5pm during the main season, the Manders' tea-room serves beautiful coffees and exquisite teas. Breakfast rolls are served until 12noon before our range of hot and cold lunches from 12noon-3pm, not forgetting our wonderful cakes and sweet treats, all prepared on site.


A taste of what might be on the menu

If you're looking for lunch then try warming up with a warming homemade soup, or one of our seasonal specials; for example our hearty beef or lamb pies. Vegetarian options are also available.

After something lighter? Try our cheese twists 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 beetroot and walnut salad.

Got a sweet tooth?

Our baker whips up some great cakes; sticky toffee apple cake, our crumbly tea-soaked fruit cake, 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.
