Eat & Shop

Temple Newsam Tearooms offers a children’s menu including hot meals, light snacks and picnic boxes, which can be enjoyed inside or within the Stable Courtyard. There are plenty of highchairs available for our littlest visitors.

We are a breastfeeding friendly venue so please feel free to breastfeed wherever you feel comfortable doing so.

Across the courtyard pick-up some Northern Bloc ice cream from Mrs Pawson’s Shop and browse other local produce. Opposite, the giftshop sells a variety of traditional toys, games and keepsakes to remind you of your day out.


Temple Newsam offers a picnic paradise! There’s so many options for lunch with a view, here’s some of our favourites, trust us we’ve tested them…

  • The north lawn looking up at the beautiful house, this location offers a little shelter with a lawned area surrounded by hedging
  • In front of the studding house, here you get both views of the wonderful architecture of the house and opposite you can look ahead to the hills and woodland, you can even see the original avenue path into Temple Newsam
  • The Walled Garden is a beautifully sunny spot to set up camp and admire the wonderful flower displays as you take a breather
  • The lake offers pretty views over the water and often offers some shade if it is a sunny day

If you fancy dining al fresco but aren’t that organised to pack ahead, grab what you need from our Tearooms and find yourself a spot, we even have kids picnic boxes.
