The Ampleforth Abbey Tea Room

Tea Room

Join us at our popular Tea Room to experience a warm Ampleforth welcome.

Now located at The Windmill a short walk from the Abbey church, our Tea Room is a great place to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting. 

Our menu includes light meals and refreshments freshly-prepared using locally produced ingredients. Discover homemade cakes, scones and light meals, as well as freshly ground coffees and Yorkshire tea.

What's more, our large garden has plenty of seating and is perfect for taking in the beautiful scenery across the valley on a sunny day.
