The Stables Café at Blickling Estate

Victoria sponge cake

The Stables Café is open for hot and cold drinks, light meals, snacks and cakes to keep you going on your visit. You're welcome to sit inside, or take your food out and enjoy the farmyard area.

For up to date information on our catering offer, please visit Eating at Blickling Estate

Open daily | 10am - 4pm*

You'll find a variety of hot and cold food items at The Stables café, from homemade soups and one pots to sandwiches, ice creams and cakes, using local, seasonal produce wherever possible.

With ample seating both inside and out, it's the perfect spot for a mid-morning snack, lunch or an afternoon cream tea. 

We love seeing dogs take a well earned rest in the Farmyard after their walk, however they aren't allowed on the front drive or in the restaurant area, so if you're planning on purchasing food at The Stables, please ensure you have someone with you to stay with your dog. 

You can always pop up to Muddy Boots café instead, where dogs are very welcome.

*Please note: last orders are 15 minutes before we close (3.45pm).
