The Dragonfly Cafe

The award winning onsite café offers a range of excellent homemade cakes and speciality coffees and teas - perfect for an afternoon tea or after a long walk in the countryside. Our favourite is the breadth of lunchtime options from hearty meals to delicious sandwiches.


Inside you can enjoy the oak framed garden room opening up onto the sun drenched patio in summer, with views of our beautiful orchard, stunning raised flower beds and the park beyond. In winter you can shelter from the elements and warm up with our log burning stove with comfy chairs and coffee tables.


We offer a range of freshly prepared barista coffees made with Cafedirect Espresso beans, a variety of teas and luxurious hot chocolate from the local Mortimer Hot Chocolate Company. This is complemented by homemade cakes, freshly prepared hot food, cold drinks, kids picnic lunches, ice lollies and confectionery.


Look out for the menu board inside the café to see the daily specials. Seasonal specials vary throughout the year from salads, wraps and quiches in the summer; to pies, gratins and 'one pots' in the winter. Made to an original German recipe, the one pots are a hearty meal with meat, seasonal vegetables and potatoes, rice or pasta with a tasty stock and crusty bread.


The café is open from 8.30am daily, except Christmas Day, and closes at 4pm during winter and 5pm during summer. A limited menu is available after 3pm, including coffee, snacks, hot and cold light meals (subject to availability).
