Lovely looking Cafe. Was very busy on a Sunday mid morning. Only seemed to be a few staff serving. Took ages just to get a bacon sandwich. Approx 30 mins! Was a litle overpriced too. Nice surroundings though.

Unfortunately our visit was a waste of time. The rooms were quite bare and the history was repeated so many times it became monotonous. The staff made you appreciate The National Trust. Restaurant very noisy and a member of staff was quite rude to us....More

I have been through Northampton many times, but did not know that Delapré Abbey existed. Set in a lovely parkland, the Abbey is full of interest for all ages, and the food in the Orangery was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We called in at Delapre Abbey for a break in our journey on the M1. The grounds were great for the dog to have a run and we enjoyed tea and cake on the terrace afterwards. The house was fascinating. I particularly enjoyed the battlefield...More

Stopped here for coffee with some friends. Ended up staying the afternoon.. kids were happy playing in the trees and we were happy with repeated coffee and cake. Prices are as expected, yet still cheaper than a National Trust place.
