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 and Uppingham hide their best cafes in alleyways and side streets around the town, but they are worth seeking out.

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, to name a few!
