Really enjoyed the tearoom at Montacute. The staff could not have been more welcoming. There was iced orange and passionfruit cake available on our visit and it was outstanding. Good coffee too. Lovely surroundings both inside and in the adjacent courtyard next to the house....More

Lunch was of the standard we've come to expect from the NT when we stopped for a quick very tasty soup and roll. There are two tearooms side by side to try to keep queues to a minimum. Plenty of outside sitting space.

Nice ambiance but limited menu by NT standards. Offers a selection of soup & roll, cakes, biscuits, tea and coffee. At the end of a guided tour on a busy morning the queue builds very quickly.
