Food & Drink

When visiting Harewood you’ll find a range of different food options available to you, catering towards all tastes, there’s something for everyone.  Ranging from the hot and hearty home-cooked dishes of the Courtyard Café, to the elegance of Afternoon Tea at the Terrace Tearooms, or Yorkshire ice-cream from the Kiosk , if you make your way round to the Bothy Teahouse you can enjoy hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and sweet treats next to the Walled Garden, where much of the produce that’s used across the site is grown.  

The Courtyard Café

Our philosophy at the Courtyard Café is built around the five S’s; Simple, Seasonal, Sustainable, Specials and Sourced locally. Expect to find a range of hot and cold dishes, sandwiches, salads, artisan cakes and locally roasted coffee. 

Hot dishes include Shepherds Pie made using lamb from the Harewood Estate’s flock of Hebridean Black Sheep, Burger of the week made using beef, venison or lamb sourced from Harewood, Seasonal Walled Garden Salads and maybe the best Fish and Chips this side of Whitby; North Sea Haddock in a Northern Monk Faith beer batter, twice cooked chips, minted mushy peas and home-made tartar sauce. Hot food is available until 3pm. 

The Terrace Tearoom + Billiard Room

Set in the Terrace of Harewood House, the Terrace Tearoom enjoys spectacular views out over almost 1000 acres of Capability Brown’s landscape at Harewood. The perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Harewood and to witness the changing of the seasons whilst enjoying a sumptuous range of home-made food and drink options. This has to be one of Yorkshires best views.

Whether you’re looking for the indulgence of Afternoon Tea in the Billiard Room, a delicious brunch, a beautifully home-made sandwich or soup, slice of cake, glass of fizz or a cocktail crafted by one of our drinks specialists, the Terrace Tearoom is the perfect location for those seeking a touch of luxury.

Our afternoon tea menu changes seasonally and is crafted in-house by our team of Chefs, giving a contemporary twist on some classic savoury and sweet flavours. The Terrace Tearoom Kitchen closes at 3pm.

Our Catering Partner
Harewood Food & Drink Project

The Harewood Food & Drink Project are on a mission to leverage Harewood as a foodie force for good, creating a sustainable food system for the future. This is (almost!) zero miles, (almost!) zero waste food you can feel good about. Food with passion and provenance.

Harewood is blessed with incredible produce;

  • Stunning varieties of heirloom fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices from Harewood’s historic Walled Garden – all grown using organic, traditional and environmentally friendly methods; 
  • Meat from our livestock – Highland Cattle, Aberdeen Angus, Hebridean Black Sheep, Red & Fallow Deer; all low intensity grazed with minimal human intervention, using the highest welfare standards, using regenerative farming methods to ensure all meat is farmed sustainably and in harmony with the land;
  • Harewood is blessed with a diverse range of wild foods foraged on the Estates 4500 acres; wild garlic, elderflower, mushrooms, blackberries and walnuts feature heavily for us.

It’s our commitment to, wherever possible, use produce sourced from Harewood across all that we do. What we can’t source from here, we work with a group of carefully selected local independent suppliers who share our ethos and values.

It is HF & DP’s commitment to help develop the next generation of industry talent with a strong culture of training, development, mentoring and nurturing of our team. We’re proud to work closely with Leeds City College Food & Drink department providing work placement opportunities, apprenticeships and away days.
