    Mothers day disappointment
    Went for a Mother’s Day walk and coffee. Cost £15 for two adults (baby was free) which we thought was expensive for going for a walk. If you can spend all day there like in the summer then it’s not so bad but this time of year it’s difficult to spend much more than a few hours there. We bought a tea and a coffee (which felt expensive but can’t remember how much they were). Tea was ok but coffee was undrinkable and got poured away. It’s made with a drinks machine rather than a proper coffee machine. We had a nice time but will be going somewhere else next time.

    Beautiful grounds
    Fabulous daffodils. Beautiful woodland walk. Indifferent catering. UHT milk served with tea. (Never). ‘Baguettes’ were not baguettes, just soft bread rolls. Pleasant café buildings though and friendly service.

    Walk and a coffee
    Visited today the walk was as good as always but we stopped off at the cafe after as we had brought a friend with us and had to sit outside under the ‘pagoda’ just near the café entrance. The whole area was very messy with the bins overflowing the table was actually filthy very disappointing. The latte was a joke and tasted awful also in such a small cup the service was shocking as the young man doing the drinks had to take orders make the drinks and serve them, it just seemed so unorganised and chaotic we had to wait nearly 3/4hour for a disgusting coffee on a filthy table - that was our fault, we should’ve left when we saw the state of the table/area and it wasn’t late, no excuse. From now on we will just stick to walking around the grounds!

    Worth the entry fee
    Thought park was well worth the £8 entry fee wished I lived nearby otherwise I would have bought the yearly pass. Plenty to see only wished the walled garden had been open. Our dogs loved the walk in the woods and seeing the squirrels and the hall was interesting as well (dogs not allowed in the hall) good day out will visit again when in the area.
    Thank you for your review. We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you again when you are next visiting North Lincolnshire

    Bring a picnic!
    Beautiful gardens, woods and so much to see and do in a gorgeous setting. My only nag is the cafe, they grow so many things in the walled garden and really have an opportunity to do fresh seasonal food and homemade treats. However, we had a sausage roll and a hot chocolate, the hot chocolate was out of a machine stocked with instant, so no barista coffee or fresh chocolate steamed milk and the sausage roll wasn’t nice at all, the meat was mushy it was like premixed sage, onion and low quality pork. When we come here again, definitely going to be bringing a picnic as I can make far better than what we paid for! The cafe is a stark contrast to the grounds and hall :-(
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your visit to the Stableyard Cafe. We do incorporate seasonal produce from our own Walled Garden where possible. For example, throughout half term we have had a popular pumpkin soup special on the menu - using pumpkins grown in the garden. We take all visitor feedback on board and will endeavour to further improve our offer.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a lovely time with my dog and friends we come here most weekends with our dog .
But recently there has been alot of nettles walking through the park which when it is really busy the are hard to avoid when walking it would be so much better if the area looked as nice as the area near the house the area is also used for runners which is not very nice running through

Always so much fun at Normandy Hall.
However today started a bit rocky when I got my little girls bike out the car and the chain had come off.
I saw a guy walking past that worked there.
He was so friendly and helpful. He took my little girls bike to the museum so he could use some tools to get the chain back on. Removing the chain guard etc.
I’m so grateful for his help, his name was Graham.
Thank you for starting our day a good one. Otherwise I would of had a very upset girl.

Normanby Hall is honestly my favourite place to take my little boy. Theres so many things to do from the land train, the splash pad and the lovely walk around the woods. We have a member card which is definitely great value for money

Another great place to visit for families and couples alike. We spent most of our day there enjoying a walk through the trees, a visit to the hall and a stop at the cafe a couple of times during our day.

My daughter and I had a nice walk round the grounds and then we went in the cafe for lunch. The staff were very cheerful and the tables and high chairs were cleaned to a very high standard by Robin. The chilli/coconut soup and rhubarb cake were absolutely delicious 😋
