As is usual with National Trust visits everything is well organised, and high quality. Even the November weather was perfect. Lunch in the cafe was simply perfect. Fresh and tasty

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.
