The Drawing Room Café

Our Drawing Room Café occupies two elegant and welcoming Georgian rooms and enjoys glorious views across the gardens.

Grab a sandwich or panini, relax with fabulous coffee and one of our delicious bakes, or savour a seasonally-inspired light meal and a glass of wine.

The café is the perfect spot to soak up autumnal views of the garden with a selection of drinks including our delicious range of Teapigs tea flavours, Drury coffee and various refreshing juices and soft drinks. Our range of cakes and pastries is ever-changing, from old favourites like flapjacks and millionaire’s shortbread to lemon polenta cake and gluten-free cherry slices.

Our menu is fresh, seasonal and delicious and includes hot and cold dishes. Order from the counter and we’ll bring hot food to your table. And if you fancy a glass of something with your meal, choose from a selection of wine, beer, cider and champagne.

Enjoy the afternoon sun and tranquil views across the lawn to the Walled Garden from our terrace tables.

We have plenty to welcome our youngest visitors. There’s a simple menu for kids and Ella’s Kitchen pouches for babies. Games, colouring sheets and pencils, and highchairs are available in the play area in the café’s adjoining dining area.

Whether you’re taking a break from exploring the Palace and gardens, or you’d like a snug chat with friends, the Drawing Room Café is a perfectly charming spot to relax.
