EATING

Here at Doddington, we pride ourselves on our food and hospitality. Our team of chefs produce sensational dishes using our own home-grown produce. Depending on the season we have fruit, vegetables and salad from our very own Kitchen Garden; beef from our herd of Lincoln Red Cattle; plus our own eggs; game, honey and foraged produce from the Estate. When we need something that we don’t grow ourselves we try to source it as locally and sustainably as possible.

We do not take bookings for the Café or Coffee Shop however we highly recommend pre-booking for Afternoon Tea in the Doddington Tea Room (book here)
