Orangery Afternoon Tea.


The Orangery Tea Room is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside just 15 minutes from the centre of Norwich. Set in the stunning grounds of the historic Ketteringham Hall and enjoying views over the beautiful lake, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or a pot of loose leaf tea alongside our home made cakes and sweet treats.

We also offer light lunches with a selection of sandwiches or paninis, salads or a quiche or soup of the day. Everything is made to order!

For an extra special treat why not book yourself, friends and family a beautiful traditional Afternoon Tea, with a selection of finger sandwiches, mini sweet treats and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam.

Our unique position means that our coffee granules, tea leaves and peelings go back into the garden to be composted by the Norfolk School of Gardening here in the Walled Garden at Ketteringham Hall together with our compostable takeaway containers.

Well behaved dogs are made welcome on our terrace but must be kept on a lead. Water and dog treats are always available.

Due to the nature of the building there is currently no wheelchair access to the tearoom however we are working to address this. We can make sometimes make arrangements to move tables to those that can not get to us easily and there are benches situated in the stunning park.

I have now been back several times to The Orangery and can honestly say it is one of the best tea rooms I have visited, which as a keen cyclist is quite a few. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was great, with the exception of the cakes and scones, which are out of this world. It is now firmly on my map to visit as often as I can, an absolute gem for Norfolk.

We booked an afternoon tea for a surprise baby shower and The Orangery were brilliant from start to finish! Fabulous catering for different dietary requirements and excellent value for money as well as the food being delicious!

Will definitely be visiting again and again and again!

Just wanted to say we had a lovely visit on Friday 11 Sept. The location and tea rooms are a lovely setting and the afternoon tea was delicious. We felt very safe and staff were very helpful. It all felt very special.
It was our first visit but now mum knows where you are she will be back for other visits.
Thank you once again, you are providing the opportunity for people to relax and make some happy memories, in what is often a very difficult time.
Best wishes

This is not an enquiry this is a big thank you for the special offer given to those who have been shielding. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea we had today. The venue was lovely, the service first class and the food beautifully presented and tasty. And the layout such that we felt safe.

Thank you for this special treat, the first time we have been anywhere to sit, relax and eat since the beginning of March! We have not been to Ketteringham Hall before but we will certainly be back!

Yours gratefully
