Cafes & Tea Rooms

You are spoilt for choice when looking for a place to sit back and enjoy a drink with a wedge of delicious homemade cake, or light lunches, breakfast bites, and especially afternoon teas. Not only are our market towns peppered with delightful tearooms, but many of the attractions have their own excellence cafe to tempt you.

Oakham hides its best cafes in alleyways and side streets around the town, but they are worth seeking out. In summer, discover the secret garden of Castle Cottage Café, where you will feel like you’re on the set of a County Living photo shoot.  Otters Fine Foods on Mill Street is not only a smokehouse and deli, but you can take a seat and enjoy their seasonal menu using the best ingredients.

If you’re looking for an outing where the food offering is more of an attraction in its own right than an afterthought, then you will not be disappointed with Burghley House, Gates Garden Centre, Barnsdale Gardens or Grimsthorpe Castle
