This isn't a typical garden centre cafe offering. This is a magical little place in old fashioned greenhouses set in a pretty walled garden forming part of the Stansted Estate. In summer it's especially lovely to sit outside in the walled garden itself. Super family and dog friendly it's a delight for those visiting the Estate or for passing walkers.... More

Light lunch in Pavilion Tea Rooms which were formerly the greenhouses and potting sheds of Stansted House. Very good food and well thought out to cope with the demand for this popular venue. Also on site is Garden Centre, Farm Shop and activities for small children (maze, small railway) but need to check opening times. Lovely walled gardens and grounds... More

Great place for a family visit to see and English Garden and enjoy great sandwiches and the best cream tea I've had in a long while. The scones were to die for and the tea was hot and strong. They have a very nice nursery and garden shop with very reasonably priced merchandise.

Met up with a friend for elevenses. The sun was shining and we sat in the walled garden to drink tea and eat cake. There's a vast choice of delicious cakes on display in the Pavillion Cafe - they're a bit on the pricey side but delicious and very rich - a real treat. Dogs are welcome (water bowls under... More

A little difficult to find but well worth it. The public have access to the ground floor and the servants quarters. Well informed stewards guide throughout. Servants quarters are fully furnished as during early 20th century. Food in the Pavillion is very good.

We arrived just after 12pm and had a drink in the Pavilion Cafe. We took a tour of the house which was very interesting as there were guides in every room. We could take our time as there was no tour guides rushing you round. After an hour looking round the house we had a nice lunch in the Cafe... More
