In line with current COVID-19 restrictions, the Hillsborough Castle cafe in the Weston Pavilion is now closed.

We will reopen on Saturday 5, and 10 December, 10.00-16.00 for a take-away service and collection orders only. 

We will then open as normal on Friday 11 December and will remain open 7 days per week up to Christmas Eve. Opening hours are 10.00 to 16.00 (10am to 1pm on Christmas Eve).

We will have delicious soups, sandwiches and salads and a range of patisserie to be enjoyed, along with our hot food range including burgers, chowder and curries.

During weekends we feature our Christmas dinner with the full works, all made using the finest local produce including vegetables and herbs from our garden.

Our cafe has a spacious dining area for customers to enjoy along with table service via an app.
