Details

The Bellingham Buttery is open from 10am until 5pm, Sundays to Thursdays, during the season, offering a wide range of delicious home-cooked food, with a daily blackboard menu of hot and cold dishes, puddings and snacks. A vegetarian option is always available.

Free Wi-Fi.

Produce from the Levens Estate, including venison and pheasant, is served when available, with fruit and vegetables from the garden in season.

Our own Morocco Ale, brewed to an original 18th century recipe, is always on sale. Wherever possible, all ingredients are sourced from local suppliers.

Indoor seating is in the flagged Servants’ Hall and 19th century back kitchen with its original range. Outdoor seating is on the terrace fronting the attractive and colourful formal garden, with views to Whitbarrow and beyond.

In the inner tearoom there is a DVD of the interior of the house playing continuously for the enjoyment of those visitors who are unable to access the house.

Speciality: Homecooked food
