Snowdrop Tearooms





The Old Laundry Tearooms have been an integral part of the snowdrop openings during FEBRUARY ONLY  Welford Park  for the last eighteen years. The difference for 2017 is a brilliant chef delivering delicious simple lunches.    Exactly the same lunch menu is offered in the spacious heated tent as in the tea rooms. Coffee and a selection of Dragonfly Tea,  cold drinks together with homemade cakes and sandwiches are available all day, and the hot lunch menu from midday. 

We are sorry but we do not serve Fast Food, we serve delicious food as fast as we can. Please be patient when we are busy.

The Welford Food Policy:

1. We pride ourselves on using only homemade or locally sourced produce in our tearooms.

2. The ham, and pork sausages are all sourced from Welford Farms where we have a small holding of free range pigs to ensure the meat we serve is healthy and nutritious.    We sell our Pork Products in the gift shop and online.

3. Our food is professionally prepared to the highest standards.

4.  Our very young table wipers are children of the waitresses etc .   We have very strict age related policies as to what tasks are suitable, and whole local families are able to get involved. We hope that by employing so many young from our surrounding villages we are giving them the life skills and experience needed for future employment.  

 5. Our staff are trained carefully by us, and anyone involved in actually handling and cooking the food  holds a current Food Hygiene Level 2 certificate. All staff are expected to smile, serve and look after our valued customers to the best of their abilities.

6. Our tearooms consist of the main inside building with two seating areas which lead into our famous gift shop and a heated tent outside. Our heated tent serves the same menu, offering  a dog and pushchair friendly zone . We take the issue of allergies seriously, but we are not even pretending to be a professional restaurant and do not have the resources to be one.  This is NOT a NUT free or GLUTEN FREE kitchen.  

We hope you have a lovely day with us.
