Time for tea in the garden

Time for Tea!

Light lunches (e.g. sandwiches, ploughmans, Huntsman’s pie, quiche), tea, coffee and delicious home-made scones and cakes are served in our Grade I listed 16th century Tithe Barn.  On fine days, refreshments can be taken in the garden.

The ‘Tea Room’ in the Tithe Barn has now closed for 2019 but will be open, as usual, Tuesday to Friday from Tuesday 5th May 2020 to Wednesday 30th September 2020.   There is also a small shop, selling greetings cards, interesting gifts and vintage collectables.

INFORMATION FOR GROUPS:  We can provide light lunches and cream teas on request for groups but advance booking is essential.  We are sorry but we are not able to provide catering for groups visiting on Mondays (when the garden is not open to the public).
