Stokesay Castle Tea Rooms

Stokesay Castle Tea Rooms

Stokesay Castle is one of the best-preserved fortified medieval manor houses in England. English Heritage who have restored Stokesay Castle, and who manage the property, have recently completed the conversion of nearby Stokesay Cottage – which stands beside the public entrance to the castle grounds – into a tea-room – the Stokesay Castle Tea Rooms.

An outside seating area is just visible in the photograph above – and offers visitors picturesque views across rolling fields to Long Mynd and the Shropshire Hills.

As well as the outdoor spaces the Tea Rooms feature a log burner to provide winter warmth for the anticipated visits from walkers and cyclists. The menu relies on locally-sourced ingredients and fresh foods including local specialities like Shropshire Fidget Pie, Shrewsbury Biscuits and Shropshire Blue. The focus on local food includes rosewater distilled from the roses in the castle courtyard used in the lavendar shortbread.
