Places to Eat

Whilst exploring 64 acres of castle, grounds and gardens, take a well-deserved break and enjoy a meal, or choose from a selection of snacks and refreshments.

The Conservatory Tea House

Designed by landscape gardener Robert Marnock, the Peacock Garden is aptly named after its feathered residents and boasts sculptured topiary, manicured hedges, flourishing flower beds and a focal-point fountain. It's here that you'll find the original Conservatory, constructed in 1786 by local mason, William Eborall. Pop inside and pick up a light lunch, cream tea, ice cream or hot drink, to enjoy whilst you wander around this stunning part of the castle estate.

The Undercroft Café

Hidden within the lower level of the castle, the Undercroft Café offers a range of hot and cold snacks and is the perfect pit stop during a busy day. Originally used as a cellar, and later as the servants dining hall, today you can enjoy its original medieval features, such as high-vaulted ceilings. A takeaway service is available - and you'll find sandwiches, pastries and more on the menu.
