Remember your reusable cup

Visiting the tea-room

Please note: at the moment we're unable to offer our full menu of hot lunches

Take the weight off your feet and renew your energy before you explore the Arboretum, or reward yourself after an invigorating walk through the woods. The tea-room is a short level walk away from the car park.

We have outdoor seating for when the sun's shining or indoor seating for the cooler months. Dogs on leads are welcome in the Arboretum and can enjoy the outdoor seating area with their owners.

Hot drinks

We take great pride in our hot drinks, serving only Fairtrade coffee made from the best ingredients while you wait. If coffee isn't your cup of tea, try our National Trust Everyday tea blend made especially for us by Clipper. At weekend & holidays we also have a coffee Tuk-Tuk & ice cream hut next to the tea-room to serve the outdoor seating area with hot and cold drinks and ice creams.

Enjoying a sandwich from the tea-room

Hot meals and light lunches

Choose from hot lunches or lighter meal items including sandwiches and soups. We have a pick and mix children's lunch box for your mini adventures. If you're after a sweet treat, we have a variety of bakes such as Dr Fox's ginger cake, made with a recipe by the Arboretum's own founder, a Scone of the Month and a variety of cakes.

Eating through the seasons

Winkworth changes colour constantly throughout the year, with vivid bluebells giving way to beautiful azaleas and summer greenery, followed by an autumn of burnished reds and oranges. Whatever the season, we've got just the right food for you, whether it's a light salad on a hot day or a warming bowl of soup during winter.
