What a great spot to stop and relax during your day tour of the estate. It's full of atmosphere and the service is great- fast and friendly. I had a chicken salad sandwich that was fresh tasting and filling. My husband and I shared a strawberry/custard layered dessert between puffed pastry that was very tasty. I would not hesitate to...

Hindsight is 20/20. We should have stopped at the sandwich stand in front of the Stable Cafe for a more reasonably priced meal. However, we wanted a sit-down meal and Stable Cafe looked like the winner. We started off with the cheese board with cheeses and house meats. It was great minus the spice. One of the cheeses was completely... More

We ordered BBQ and a bison burger and all were delicious. The collard greens were the best we've had. Service was fast and seating was comfortable after walking around the estate.

The Stable Cafe is located right outside of the estate itself so it was perfect for grabbing lunch after our house tour. The ambiance is great as it has the feel of an old stable but it is very modernized. Service was very good and the lunches were delicious! The salads and sandwiches were fresh and we were sure some/all... More

After viewing the House, it was most enjoyable to sit down in the nearby restaurant, formerly a stable, for lunch and a beer. The Cedric's Amber was an excellent beer. The pulled pork BBQ was very tasty with two sauces. Served with coleslaw and fries, it was just the right amount of food for lunch. Service was very fast even... More

Unusual setting and decor! The food was good as was the service. For me, the only draw back was the crowd and noise level. It was difficult to have much of a conversation but I suspect this is the same as any tourist eatery. Don't let that stop you, though…it's all part of the experience!

Great prices and even greater food, this is the place to visit after the wonderful sights seen at the estate. A trip to McDonald's will not have bratwurst dogs or club sandwiches as beautifully prepared as this place. Give it a try, then try it again.

Great atmosphere in former stables. Super friendly staff. Gluten free menu and awareness. Fabulous BBQ. Fabulous. Loved the greens! Wonderful experience. Not your usual restaurant at an attraction, for sure. A lovely surprise with outstanding locally sourced lamb and other goodies.

We ordered a turkey sandwich to share and that was a great decision as each half was huge. Other offering included a quiche made with pulled pork, strange! Our waitress was somewhat slow however the energy of the room and its echoing acoustics created an expectation of speed that could not be achieved.

3 Season delight = sitting outdoors, sampling coffee and pastry from the Stable Cafe. Heavenly! Best experienced with a friend.
