Café Restaurant

An old cattle byre was transformed into the warm and elegant Cafe Restaurant we have at Hall Farm today. Whether it is for breakfast, morning coffee, a light bite, a more leisurely 3 course lunch, or afternoon tea with a slice of homemade cake, there is something to suit everyone. Our happy bunch of merry men and women lead by Sarah Brass, will seat you inside or outside in the courtyard (during good weather), to enjoy our fabulous food and our breath-taking views over the Dedham Vale.

Children are very welcome and we have a full menu for our young diners. We are also able to adapt any of our dishes from the main menu to suit.

The kitchen is led by Head Chef Lee Morgan, who, along with his team, always creates a fantastic range of delicious dishes. We home bake and hand make everything we possibly can. Scones and bread are baked daily, and our cakes will make your mouth water! Our menu changes regularly, keeping in rhythm with the seasons and what local produce is available. Hall Farm beef, lamb and potatoes are also frequently listed, and cooked to perfection. We try to use products stocked in our brilliant Farm Shop, so you have the opportunity to take home a taste of Hall Farm too.

The Hall Farm animals, including ponies, sheep and highland cattle are in the paddocks around the house, surrounding the restaurant. They are most comical and interesting to watch! Non restaurant guests are welcome to view the animals from 4.00pm daily.

We try our utmost to facilitate large parties, please talk to any member of staff about your requirements. All bookings over 10 are subject to a deposit and tables will only be held for 20 minutes after the booked time unless we are contacted and informed that the party is running late.
