Food and Drink at Audley End House and Gardens

Over one Christmas alone the Braybrookes of Audley End and their guests consumed 245kg of meat and 34 rabbit.  For a slightly more conservative bite to eat, try one of our two cafés for delicious treats and refreshing drinks during your day out at Audley.

Cart Yard Café

You'll find the Cart Yard Café next to the children's play area and Walled Organic Kitchen Garden. With a great choice of snacks and hot and cold drinks, it's the perfect spot to rest your legs while the little ones run off some steam.

Toilets, baby-changing facilities, high chairs, children's portions and lunch boxes are available.

Servants' Hall Tearoom

Still feeling peckish? Head to the Servants' Hall Tea Room where we serve a menu full of locally-sourced light bites. There's a wide choice of hot and cold drinks available too.

Toilets, baby-changing facilities, high chairs, bottle/food warming, children's portions and lunch boxes are available.
