A wintry welcome to the Brabazon Restaurant where Head Chef, Jane Bell, creates homemade food for you to enjoy from tasty soups and roasts to scrumptious cakes. 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 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 Beaulieu leek and chicken pie, home baked gammon with Beaulieu parsley sauce or Beaulieu parsnip soup at any similar visitor attraction. 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.
We proudly work with our local schools and colleges to drive our fresh food ethos through to the next generation.

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 an amazing gingerbread latte.
Our pastry chef Carol makes all of our cakes and pastries in house, specialising in scones with Dorset clotted cream and homemade fruits of the forest jam.
If you’re peckish before lunchtime, sample our homemade toasties 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 our soups and side vegtable dishes, currently parsnip. 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. We also try and cater for those with special dietary requirements, for example we provide gluten free baked beans, home grated cheese and always have dessert and fruit options which are gluten free, such as our chocolate and nut brownie. Our soups are thickened with potato and our chips are fried separately from battered production.
We pride ourselves in our traditional beer battered hand cooked sustainable haddock and chips served with home made tartare sauce. Our current batter is flavoured with Ringwood Ale.
