Food & Drink

Honesty Cafe

The new Honesty Café is situated in the beautiful Pavilion with stunning views over one of our lakes. It is open 10am-5pm daily for drinks (including proper coffee!), snacks, cakes, Jude’s ice creams and lunch – including a selection of vegan and gluten free options. Lunch and tea boxes are available for our younger guests and the cafe even stocks gifts, such as biscuits and jams. The menu changes weekly and will soon include salads. The Newbury-based Honesty Group has built a reputation for quality food (it all started with bread) that is ethically produced. Indoor seating is now available in the Roman building, which boasts marble columns and statues.
