The Stables Café is changing…

In accordance with new government guidelines, the Stables Café at Hestercombe will be separating into a takeaway café and a table-service restaurant as of Wednesday 21st October. Both areas will be accessible via the Courtyard as normal (see signs on arrival).

Takeaway Café – Open 12pm – 5pm

The takeaway café will serve quick snacks and drinks to go, including coffee, tea, cold drinks, baguettes, cakes and soups, with vegan and gluten-free options. These refreshments are designed to be taken away, but can be enjoyed on-site in our picnic area outside of the courtyard. All takeaway packaging is made of vegware and is compostable, biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Bampfylde Hall Restaurant – Open 10am – 4pm

The Bampfylde Hall restaurant will serve homemade food, with afternoon tea, lunch, brunch and dessert menus giving you plenty of delicious options. On arrival, you will be seated and served at your table, either in the Courtyard or inside the Bampfylde Hall. The restaurant is first-come-first-served and booking is currently unavailable. Dogs are welcome in all areas. We ask that you remain wearing your face covering until seated.

The Bampfylde Hall menu times are as follows;

Brunch: 10am to 11:30am

Lunch: 12pm to 2:30pm

Afternoon Tea: 12pm to 4pm
