Lunch, drinks and sweet treats

The Carriage House Café is self-service and offers a wide variety of seasonal dishes prepared in house by our team of chefs and bakers. 

With range of sandwiches, baguettes and soup, plus delicious cakes, pastries, barista brewed coffees and a selection of hot food, we have something for every taste.

Back by popular demand - our Sunday roast lunch, including hand-carved roast of the day with market vegetables, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes and pan gravy.
