Our delightful Stables Cafe is open daily from 10am.

We have retained the character of the former horse stalls and updated the décor making this a stylish place to enjoy coffee, lunch and afternoon tea with friends and family. Many of the stalls still bear the name plaques of the horses that were once housed there.

Our menu is regularly updated to make the most of the local seasonal produce available to us. Join us for homemade lunches and delicious cakes and afternoon teas.

Our large covered outdoor seating area is perfect all year round and provides a perfect space for larger groups who wish to sit together.
