Very much enjoyed our lunch here and would return. Good range of basic lunch options offered, but food could be a little more upmarket particularly as the setting is so special. Loved the little building history card on each table.

Been visiting Buckenham House for years with my mother who loves the simplicity and almost always has a jacket potato. It suits her but not me - I find it a bit depressing to be honest.

Great premises for a coffee house. Good selection of coffee, very well supported by a note CEO lunch menu. The soup special was excellent, potato and Gloucester cheese. Yum. Nice friendly service. Great quality although a little expensive but very enjoyable.
