Tea Shop

Pop-up café on the lawn

This summer from 4 July, join us at our pop-up café on the lawn to enjoy al fresco dining and views of the Gallery from a beautifully dressed marquee. We will be serving a slightly reduced menu as we open, and the Tea Shop will be open for hot drinks, cakes and additional indoor seating. All orders will need to be made at the pop-up café from 4 July.

Visit our Tea Shop for fresh, homemade food.

Try our famous Welsh rarebit, or choose from homemade soups, sandwiches and salads. We also offer a selection of cakes and cream teas with freshly baked scones and a wide drinks selection. Check out our daily specials on the chalkboard.

Stop by for table service and takeaways, with the option of outdoor seating, surrounded by our gardens.

5-star Food Hygiene Rating retained in 2022. Awarded by Guildford Borough Council.

On our menu we are proud to serve Greyfriars Vineyard wine, Hogsback Brewery beer and cider, Loseley cakes and bread from Christmas Bakery. All these suppliers are less than eight miles from the Gallery.

"Simply the BEST tea shop I have ever visited. Anywhere that has a selection of a dozen cakes on offer gets top points!"
