Tea room

Winterbourne’s Terrace Tea Room is not to be missed and is open to visitors to the house and garden daily. With picturesque views over the garden and a hearty menu of soups, sandwiches, daily hot specials and the quintessentially English afternoon tea (not always easy to find in the West Midlands), there is plenty to tempt you all year round. View the afternoon tea menu.

Serving tea, cakes and other refreshments throughout the day, meals and hot snacks are available from 12-3pm. Highchairs and child-friendly meals are also available; just ask when placing your order at the counter.

“The Bakewell tart was the best I ever had.”

As the tea room is designed to serve visitors to the house and garden, tables are first come first served. If you’re in a larger group do give us a call before planning a visit to make sure we don’t already have some large groups visiting the site that day. We also suggest that if you have a particular diet or an allergy, that you give us a call the day before visiting so that we can try our best to cater for your needs.

The tea room is located centrally on the site and so admission must be paid in the gift shop to permit entry; please view our admission prices here.

Gift Shop

Winterbourne’s gift shop

With a collection of greetings cards so enticing that some visitors travel for miles to buy them, you’re sure to find a memento of your visit or a gift for a friend before you depart.

Choose from artwork from our printing press, locally-made soaps and Winterbourne-harvested honey, or perhaps a pewter ornament hand-cast in a Birmingham workshop since 1779. There are also plenty of pocket money toys, perfect to keep kids amused on the journey home.

Outside our propagated plants also draw the crowds, and we offer 10% off plant sales to our members. Please note: access to plant sales requires an admission ticket.
