Café & Shop

The Stable Yard Café is the perfect place to stop for a light refreshment or a hearty meal. The gift shop sells a range of gifts and souvenirs.

The Stable Yard Café

Located in Aston Hall’s Stables Range the space has been transformed into a modern eatery, full of charm. With both indoor and outdoor seating available, you’ll always find the perfect spot to enjoy your lunch or afternoon tea.

We’re delighted to be welcoming our talented Sous Chef from Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery’s popular Edwardian Tearooms to The Stable Yard Café this year to launch a brand-new menu, including an astonishing new afternoon tea inspired by Lady Holte’s gardens.

In addition to delicious hot lunches you’ll also find a tempting range of cakes and sweet treats on offer, alongside our signature loose leaf teas and barista coffee. 

The Stable Yard Café is open from 11am – 4pm, with last orders for hot food at 3pm. From 3pm you’re welcome to join us for a snack, and we offer takeaways too.

See our menu for the full details. 

The café is free to visit during site opening hours.

To keep you and other diners safe we have the following measures in place:

  • When you arrive at Stable Yard Café, please take a seat – you’ll find a menu on your table. When you are ready to order, please make your way to the till point, here we will also take payment. Meals will then be served to your table for those eating-in.
  • A takeaway service is also available.
  • Staff will be wearing masks and you’ll also find Perspex screens in operation.
