Food and Drink at Stonehenge

To create Stonehenge, a huge well-coordinated communal effort was needed to transport, shape and raise the stones.  Some came from over 150 miles away and were moved by land and water. Many of the items on our café menu come from much closer.

Stonehenge Cafe

Our light and airy café is in the glass pod, near the shop in the visitor centre, and has lovely views to the west.

You can eat and drink here whether you are visiting Stonehenge or not, though on busy days you'll be charged for the car park. You can choose to sit inside or out, or take something away for your journey. Outside the café there are plenty of tables in the dappled shade of a canopy.

You're welcome to bring a picnic, though the tables in the café are for customers only, so why not have your picnic in the open-access Stonehenge landscape? All our food comes in picnic-ready sustainable takeaway packaging.

Our Food

The café serves soup, vegetarian and traditional pasties, sausage rolls (from the award-winning Proper Cornish Pasties Company), sandwiches, salads and other sweet and savoury items, using regionally-sourced produce.

Our famous Rock Cakes are made right here in the café, and many of our other items come from some of the South West’s finest producers. We get our organic ice cream from Marshfield Farm, our bread from Hobbs House Bakery, juices from Bensons Totally Fruity, our beer from the Stonehenge Brewery and our fruit wines from the Lyme Bay Winery.

We have items on the menu to meet most dietary requirements, including gluten-free sandwiches, salads, soups, biscuits and cakes. Vegan and dairy-free soups and sugar-free biscuits are also available. If you have a specific dietary need, please ask a member of the catering team for assistance.

Food for Families

Healthy children's lunch boxes - with children's activities on the pack - are available. These contain a ham or cheese roll, a packet of crisps, dried fruit and a carton of juice.

We're happy to serve smaller portions of soup for children - just ask a member of staff.

Bottle and food warming, high chairs, and wooden cutlery available. Baby-changing and baby-feeding facilities in the visitor centre.
