After a long walk around the grounds went back to the tea room for a great sandwhich, you also got crisps and salad not just the sandwhich.

Called just for drinks and cakes which were amazing. A pleasant clean, well organised cafe. Different sizes and shaped tables great when in a group round tables, small square tables something suitable for everyone.

The food was amazing with some of this coming from the orchard (apple juice) - has to be tried. The service was very quick and sitting in the courtyard was a must on a sunny day.

Description
The Tea Room, furnished with the famous 'Mousey Thompson' tables, is situated off the Main Hall in the Central Building. It provides a welcome respite and nourishing refreshments. Using locally produced products where we can, our menu includes homemade cakes and scones, ciabattas, light meals, salads and delicious afternoon teas. We also have freshly ground coffees and Yorkshire tea or why not try a glass of our Ampleforth cider or Abbey beer with your meal or relax in our courtyard with a glass of wine?
