Had a very tasty lunch at Dorney Court today. The garden centre has a great informal dining space (wooden cabin style). Great for a coffee tea and cake but also great for lunch / brunch with a nice selection of light meals. Order at the counter but table service. Prices very reasonable for hot food. Home made cakes a little pricey but very tasty. Coffee and speciality teas also good. Very nice gift shop too and loads of parking.

Thank you for your very kind comments. We wish we could take credit but the praise deserves to be attributed to our neighbours -Crocus at Dorney. We agree they do a good job.

Visited on a very hot day but the house was nice and cool - apparently it is freezing in the winter!

Guide was a family friend and very informative, she was obviously a great admirer of the family’s achievements

Fantastic to have a house that has been in the same family for centuries, it is certainly a unique living space.

The house looks amazing from the outside, inside it's a bit of a mishmash but still really interesting. Has been used for lots of films and TV series including Midsomer Murders and Poirot. Check before you go as it's a private house and the opening times are limited, though it's open daily in August (afternoons only). You can only go inside by joining one of the guided tours - £9 cash only. Ours lasted about an hour and was very good. The history of the place is absolutely fascinating.

Used our 2 for 1 Gardener's World card so it was great value, but the house is the main attraction, not the gardens as these are fairly small. Make sure you also visit the church while you're there.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, greeted by a member of the ancestral family and helpful staff. Dorney Court has a rare charm, it's unpretentious and welcoming. Every member of staff seemed passionate about the property and our guide was a wealth of knowledge, sharing stories of life in the grade one listed house. The cafe was great too! A nicely designated children's area, lots of space to sit inside and out and a good broad menu.
Overall, highly recommended, I'd happily revisit.
Two tips: it's only open to the public in August and take cash to pay for your visit, as cards are not accepted.

We visited Saturday afternoon and did the 2 pm tour which was very interesting. Not really suitable for young children. As far as I can remember tours start from 1.30 pm and take about an hour. It’s open in August in the afternoon and on some bank holidays. You can’t go round the house on your own. You can also look at the old church and the garden area on one side of the house. The family still live there so there is no access to the pretty garden closest to where they live.
There is plenty of parking in the meadow near the house on grass so it would be possible to picnic but there is no access to toilets there but there is a separate cafe.
Check out their website for more details. We were there about 2 hours in all. It’s about a 10 min drive from Eton and Cliveden house and garden in other directions.

Perfect place filled with history that can be seen from the paintings on the wall. Food was okay there.

We feel honoured and fortunate to see Dorney court . Tudor building that have been looked after to maintain their current state. Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. We found it helpful to listen to the staff.
I've studied Tudor times and knew about Dorney Court but now I am touching stone work. Walking through rooms and gardens. Getting lost in History is my biggest joy. Thanks all those who work here.
