Courtyard Cafe

The Courtyard Café is the perfect place to enjoy with family and friends whether you’re visiting the House and Gardens, shopping at the Courtyard or just passing. 


The table service restaurant serves lunch and afternoon treats daily, and breakfasts on weekends. The cafe focuses on local and estate made seasonal produce with our menu reflecting the best of what the region has to offer. All our beef is reared just 8 minutes down the road and is available to buy from our Farm Shop Butchery too.

When the sun shines the decking is a great spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch and from January 2018 dogs are also welcome in the Courtyard Cafe. 

Please see our Opening Times page for details.
