Good tea rooms. Coffee excellent and cake very nice. Limited choice for lunch but jacket potatoes were very good. Good, friendly staff.

We visited on a Friday lunchtime in August. We went in for lunch at 12.15 and most of the hot dishes on the delicious-sounding menu had already sold out. Good choice of gluten-free cakes and brownies, but it was very difficult to get a hot meal as a gluten-free customer, other than the eternal jacket potato with tuna. My husband wanted the curry but that had sold out. My toddler was happy with his jacket with cheese and beans, once they worked out the cheese should be on his not on my tuna, but options for hot food for him were limited and no vegetables available other than salad. We all enjoyed cake afterwards but main courses were disappointing.

We were treating our friends to a special day out, looking forward to the 'one pot' main meal. Ordered and paid, then told there wasn't any left.... 12.45 (a bit early to run out of the main dish) had to make some quick discisions as we were a party of 4. and the queue was getting impatient. very basic baked potatoes and a dry cauliflower fritter.
later had ice cream outside, but as many tables had not been cleared let alone wiped down, the whole population of wasps from the grounds decended on us. As we are members of NT we will visit again but not to eat.

Nice outdoor seating area which is reasonably sheltered with lots of seats. Typical NT with good produce and canteen style service.

When visiting the castle we stopped at the tearoom for cream teas and this was good value for money and good quality. Plenary of seats inside and out, free water top ups here as well.
