The only unfortunate thing about our visit was that the hall and gardens were shut. However, the cafe is wonderful: the food is fresh and appetising and very reasonably priced. Make sure you leave room for one of the cakes - as good to eat as they are to look at!

An interesting experience with good value food as lunch later. This was preceded by a gentle stroll around the grounds.

Doddington Hall is well worth a visit - it is a very interesting house, and very beautiful too, with really stunning gardens. The Farm shop is a regular with us, as most of the veg is locally-sourced. The locally-baked bread from Welbourn bakeries, as well as fish products from Chapmans of Grimsby are really good. It's always a pleasure to... More

Doddington Hall remains a family home that is open to the public. You can obtain a verbal aid guide for walking around the hall. When you have seen all that you want to see in the Hall you can then take a pleasant walk around the gardens. In doing this, it may give you an appetite and on the grounds... More

Great farm shop with many specialist items. I am lucky to live close by so I'm able to visit on a regular basis. They always carry seasonal fruit & vegetables that are grown on the estate or locally.

The house and gardens are not always open so a look at the website is essential planning. The gardens are well worth a visit, especially for special events there - and the kitchen garden is a living wonder. Again, restricted access, so check. The shops, cafes and walks from here are worth a stop anytime. Not cheap, but good quality.

Wanted a quick lunch. Very busy as there was a sculpture exhibition on in the garden. We just had sandwich, salad and a jacket potato. Both of good quality. People eating around us all seemed to enjoy a variety of dishes.
