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
Had a very enjoyable couple of hours here this morning. Picturesque grounds making for an ideal place to have a walk with the grand children. Stopped for lunch at the cafe which was good quality ( we had various sandwiches and drinks ) but quite...More

However choose carefully in the Orangery retaurant as we were served unbuttered door stops as...More

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.
Have been to Delapre Abbey on a few occasions just to visit the excellent tea room for lunch and then a walk around the lovely gardens also went to a 40th birthday party there in a marquee lovely setting happy to visit again and again.
