1485 Tithe Barn Cafe

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

The 1485 Tithe Barn Cafe has now reopened and will be open from 9.30am – 3.30pm Saturday to Wednesday throughout September. Visitors do not need a timed exhibition ticket to visit the cafe.

The Cafe is working with a reduced menu for the time being, and internal numbers are limited, but customers are welcome to eat inside and outside in the courtyard. We do ask you to wear face coverings when entering and leaving the barn.

Our beautifully reconstructed oak building accommodates a licensed café and our menu offers an all-day breakfast sandwich, snacks, daily specials and a variety of cakes to enjoy with a hot or cold drink.

Due to the new Government ruling on social gatherings in pubs and restaurants we cannot accept booking from groups larger than 6 unless they form a single household unit or ‘bubble’.

Please note: All items subject to availability.
