A warm Summer welcome to the Brabazon Restaurant where Head Chef, Jane Bell, and her team create homemade food for you to enjoy from tasty soups and salads to scrumptious cakes. Something for every taste.
Brabazon Restaurant - New For Summer!
Beaulieu are proud to offer a full range of fresh, homemade produce in the Brabazon Restaurant. The restaurant is open every day from 10am and 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 cater for visitors with gluten intolerances and other allergies, simply let us know if you have special dietary requirements.
Our Head Chef Jane Bell and the Estate Garden Team work together to grow and select the freshest seasonal ingredients to create high quality fresh food. We are confident that you won't find homemade dishes such as Homemade Courgette, Feta & Mint Frittata, Broccoli Soup or Rosemary-baked Jacket Potatoes at any similar visitor attraction. Even our daily fresh vegetable side dishes are sourced from Lord Montagu's gardener, Kelvin Yapp, and currently include courgette and fresh herbs.
We proudly work with our local schools and colleges to drive our fresh food ethos through to the next generation.

Our pastry chef Carol makes all of our cakes and pastries in house, specialising in Fruit Scones with Dorset Clotted Cream and Homemade Fruits of the Forest Jam.
If you’re peckish before lunchtime, try one of our homemade toasties which are toasted to order 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 Crisps.
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 our soups and side vegetable dishes, currently Broccoli. Lunch service is from 11.30am until 3pm, and we provide meals to suit every taste, including vegetarian options. We also try to cater for those with special dietary requirements. Our kitchen staff will be happy to talk through the menu and your requirements.
We pride ourselves on our traditional Beer Battered sustainable Cod and Chips served with Homemade Tartare Sauce. Our current batter is flavoured with Beaulieu Best Ale, brewed especially for us by Ringwood Brewery. Beaulieu Best Ale is also available for purchase by the bottle in the Brabazon Restaurant.

If you arrive later, or you still have room, treat yourself to a scoop or two of New Forest Ice Cream from our Cottage. Open during the school holidays and at weekends during term time.
Come back and sample Carol’s homemade Fruit Scones with Dorset Clotted Cream and Jam, and freshly brewed loose leaf Assam Breakfast Tea. Indulge in a moist chocolate brownie with a dollop of clotted cream, or a Giant Cookie to dip in your tea. Add a shot of caramel, vanilla, or hazelnut syrup to a speciality coffee for an extra 60p.
Sink into our Afternoon Delight Heavenly Indulgence Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows to help you unwind after a long day at the attraction.
