The Tea Room

The Georgian Coach House has been converted into a comfortable licensed tearoom, with seating for 54. In good weather patrons can also sit outside on benches. Lunches are served between 12 and 2.30pm.

Afternoon tea, with homemade cakes, is still an essential part of historic house visiting and the tearoom serves these until 5.00pm to allow visitors to indulge in this tradition. A range of hot and cold drinks are available from 11am to 5pm.

All items and offers are subject to availability.


The Shop

Situated close to the coach house, the shop has been converted from old stables. Inside you can browse the range of gifts that have been chosen to reflect the atmosphere and setting of the castle. Many of the items are unique to Grimsthorpe.

Honey harvested from the edge of the park and local chutneys add a very local flavour. We are delighted to be selling Lincolnshire produce made just down the road by ‘Saints and Sinners’ and ‘The Catering Crew’. There is also beer brewed at the 8-sailed Windmill in Heckington (image shows their “King John’s Jewels” ale) and from the Market Harborough Brewery. Flour and porridge oats from the Maud Foster windmill in Boston grace our shelves too. There is even some white and rose wine grown from vines at Fulbeck. We also stock (and cook with) their excellent Rapeseed Oil.

Oils and vinegars produced in Lincoln and local Cider are also additions to our range of gifts.

Laptrays, placements and coasters featuring country scenes form part of our display. We’ve also found some new greetings cards.

The shop also stocks ice cream tubs and lollies.
