The Ampleforth Abbey Tea Room

Tea Room

The Tea Room, furnished with the famous Robert ‘Mousey' Thompson tables, is situated in the centre of the Ampleforth campus and provides a welcome respite and nourishing refreshments.

Using locally produced products where we can, our menu includes homemade cakes and scones, ciabattas, light meals, salads and delicious afternoon teas.  We also have freshly ground coffees and Yorkshire tea or why not try a glass of our Ampleforth Abbey Cider or Beer with your meal or relax in our courtyard with a glass of wine?
