Important Notice
Magical Christmas planned at Doddington Hall & Gardens



Please note that we do not take bookings for the Cafe, tables are available on a first come, first served basis.

Dogs are welcome outside in the courtyard only.

Our café offers simple, homemade dishes cooked to order. Ranging from our famous fish and chips to the Doddington Herd Lincoln Red burger, our chefs provide a choice of substantial meals and lighter options for those with a smaller appetite.

Here at Doddington Hall we are proud to showcase quality, seasonal produce from our own Estate and local suppliers. We have our own herd of Lincoln Red Cattle for all our beef dishes, plentiful game, our own honey and foraged wild garlic along with fantastic year-round produce from our walled Kitchen Garden. Beyond the Estate, we seek out the best local growers and producers from Lincolnshire and surrounding counties.

To comply with social distancing guidelines, there is no longer access to the café through the Doddington Farm Shop entrance. Entry and exit of the café is via Marsden’s Courtyard, accessed from opposite the Bike Shop and alongside the Doddington at Home and Country Clothing stores.

Please help us keep everyone safe; wear a mask when not seated to eat/drink, use the hand sanitiser provided and adhere to social distancing.

“Growing up at Doddington, eating seasonal produce from the Kitchen Garden and farm was the only thing I knew. I learnt to cook using what was on hand here as the seasons passed and my love of cooking and good food stems from this. I strongly believe that the fresh, good quality ingredients are the foundation of delicious food.

Our menus showcase produce from our own Kitchen Garden, grass-fed Lincoln Red beef (dry aged for at least 28 days) and game from the Estate along with wonderful local produce such as bread, cheese, eggs, meat, vegetables and fruit.

Our chefs cook everything from scratch, so you might have to wait a few minutes for your food, but we hope you will think it is worth it!”
