Cowdray Farm Shop & Café
Situated on the 16,500 acre Cowdray Estate – Holistic Estate which cares about the land.
Located in Midhurst, West Sussex, at the heart of the South Downs National Park.
The Cowdray Farm Shop and Café
The Farm Shop and Cafe are seen as the hub of the Estate. The running of it is a family affair and represents so much of the Estate’s holistic ethos. The sourcing policy is of the highest standard and starts with our own home grown produce. The lamb and beef comes from the Home Farms and the Head Butcher is in the enviable position of being able to talk with the farmer about how the animals are raised and the impact this has on the end result.
We also have award winning venison which is one of the benefits of managing the wild effectively and is also perhaps one of our most sustainable food sources.
The Café serves outstanding food, from breakfast to sandwiches and snacks, to substantial meals, made from scratch, using traditional artisan techniques and the best Cowdray & local produce.
We support local suppliers whenever we are able and source only the very best produce for our store. Monmouth Coffee is now being served in the Cafe and is available to buy in the Shop and Neal’s Yard Dairy supplies our cheeses.
We’re always looking for like minded foodies interested in working in our fun and stimulating environment. If you think you’d fit in and your looking for a new challenge do get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org

Midweek bookings may be made on the day but until we call you back your booking is not confirmed. Our Summer opening hours are 9am-6pm Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm on Sundays (The Cafe closes at 4pm on Bank Holidays).
