We are sorry that you did not enjoy your visit - we do our best as a family business to ensure everything is right for our diners, and certainly we always throw away damaged crockery. Since 2012 we have invested in new seating both inside and outside and the tea room and catering facilities have been extended to allow us to offer a wider range of lunch and snacks. We hope you can revisit again soon.

“Great Views and Great Food, what more can we want?”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Food is exceptionally good, and very tasty. Watch out for specials not mentioned on the menu. Service is very friendly too.
Drinks are also splendid. We enjoyed the hot chocolate, which was lovely - I always think this a good test of a cafe as many cut back on the amount of chocolate to reduce costs! They don't do that here.
Inside tables are rather crowded and noisy. Outside feels more spacious, and the best tables have splendid views of the castle.
OK, a picnic would be cheaper. But eating here is part of the pleasure of a day in these gardens.

“Great lunch and good service”
Reviewed 10 July 2011

We recently visited Cholmondeley Castle, and the grounds and gardens are quite spectacular, and we finished with lunch in the tearooms, where nothing was too much trouble, and the ice cream and apple pie was to die for. Clean toilets everywhere and plenty of parking, an old chapel in the grounds, and lots of very large fish in the lake made it a good day out,
