Welcome to the Brabazon Restaurant where Head Chef, Jane Bell, creates homemade food for you to enjoy from fresh sandwiches to a full roast dinner. Something for every taste.
Beaulieu are proud to offer a full range of fresh, homemade produce in the Brabazon Restaurant. The restaurant has 400 seats both indoor and on covered terraces. The restaurant offers light meals, coffees and teas and homemade lunches from our hot kitchen. We open from 10am every day except Christmas day.
Our Head Chef Jane Bell and her team work with the freshest seasonal ingredients to create high quality fresh food. We are confident that you won't find homemade dishes such as Beaulieu leek and chicken pie, home baked gammon with Beaulieu parsley sauce or Beaulieu courgette and leek soup at any similar visitor attractions. Even our daily fresh vegetable side dishes are sourced from Lord Montagu's gardener, Kelvin Yapp, and include parsnips, leeks, broad beans, courgettes and potatoes.

Start your day
From the start of your visit at 10am, come to the coffee bar area to enjoy a full range of Fair Trade Barista made espresso based coffees, and high quality loose leaf teas. Sample an indulgent hot chocolate with whipped cream on a chilly day or a crushed ice vanilla latte on a warm morning.
Our pastry chef Carol makes all of our cakes and pastries in house, specializing in scones with Dorset clotted cream and homemade fruits of the forest jam.
If you’re peckish before lunchtime, sample our homemade panini which are toasted and served with salad leaves, or treat yourselves to a cake from our homemade selection, including muffins, brownies, cupcakes, flapjacks and many more delicious savoury treats such as sandwiches and snacks.
All of our lunch items are cooked fresh on the day and we do not microwave any of our meals. Wherever possible we incorporate fruits and vegetables from Lord Montagu’s kitchen garden in our menus, for example parsnip and thyme soup, and gluten free chocolate cake. We start lunch service at 11.30 and provide a fresh homemade soup, daily low fat option, children’s meals which include a soft drink within the price, and of course vegetarian options as well as delicious treats for all the family. For gluten free we provide GF baked beans, home grated cheese and always have dessert and fruit options which are GF.
We pride ourselves in our traditional beer battered hand cooked sustainable haddock and chips served with home made tartare sauce.

If you arrive later, or you still have room, treat yourself to a scoop or two of New Forest Ice Cream from our Cottage. All gluten free and made with local produce, we even offer the kids bubblegum flavour! Open during the school holidays and at weekends after September.
Come back and sample Carol’s homemade scones with jam and clotted cream, freshly brewed loose leaf Assam and English Breakfast Tea. Indulge in a moist chocolate brownie with a dollop of clotted cream, or a rich pear and frangipane tart. Add a shot of caramel, vanilla, hazelnut or coconut syrup to a speciality coffee for an extra 60p.
Sink into our Afternoon Delight Heavenly Indulgence Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows or Indecent After Eight Mint Hot Chocolate or if you’re calorie counting a soothing chamomile tea will be for you.
