Wyken Cafe boasts the same quality of food and service as our restaurant and serves breakfasts and lunches daily. Offering a slightly lighter option, it can provide the perfect accompaniment to a walk around our gardens.

Quality Food

Sourced Locally

We try to source all of our ingredients as locally as possible. The majority come from within a five mile radius: lamb and beef from neighbouring farms; venison, pheasant, partridge and other game from our own estate. We grow some of our vegtables and herbs in our kitchen garden, and source the rest from Phil, of Moyns Park Organics, who is in the Farmer’s Market each Saturday. We have a five star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
