Sheltered seating outside the courtyard cafe at Holkham, North Norfolk

Courtyard Café

The Courtyard Cafe is a relaxing, spacious venue perfect for enjoying a morning coffee, light lunch or afternoon tea. Our menu uses locally sourced produce wherever we can. Choose from homemade soup, hot pasties and sausage rolls, freshly made sandwiches and salads or delicious pork pies from our local butcher. Our freshly baked scones are perfect accompaniments for a Holkham signature coffee, or perhaps our varied cake selection will tempt you for afternoon tea. With a range of hot and cold drinks and children’s snacks all available to eat in, or enjoy ‘al fresco’ in the sunny courtyard, you’ll be spoilt for choice. During the summer, cool down with a selection of ice-creams and ice lollies served from a traditional cart in the courtyard.

We offer gluten free and vegetarian options. For any other specific dietary requirements please speak to a member of the cafe team who will be able to advise.
