We have a small coffee shop on site which is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am to 3.30pm, and on every show day.
Currently we are not open during the week but by prior arrangement this may be possible.
The coffee shop is situated adjacent to the large international riding arena where almost all our events and outside demos take place.
In the 'good old days' the building used to resemble a nissan hut but thankfully its now more presentable both inside and out. We have recently redecorated and added a few new features.
In the spring of 2019 we were awarded a 4* Food Hygiene rating by Maidstone Borough Council.
We serve a comprehensive menu ensuring your breakfast and lunch is covered plus we serve a range of sweet things too. Most of our cakes are home baked and are to die for! And of course we have the usuals of tea/coffee, hot chocolate (with optional cream topping) and a variety of canned/bottled drinks.
During evening events we often serve a smaller menu and we vary what is offered to keep you interested.
For club events we have a fixed price meal deal which we ask is pre-ordered preferably the day before or at the very latest on arrival so we can have it ready for you at the time you break for lunch.
We can now cater for groups wanting a traditional Afternoon Tea or maybe just a Cream Tea - bring your own 'bubbles' for that extra special touch, we will provide the glass wear.
Our coffee shop is rural friendly so yes you can bring your dog in but we ask that it is kept on a lead.
Tinkerbell and Tallulah our resident cats may be napping in their baskets, on a chair (or on my laptop) so look first before you sit.
We have seating inside for 30 people now, including a new L shaped breakfast bar which looks out over our arena.
If we move a few tables outside, we can fit in a further 10 people seated.
The outside patio area has 6 picnic benches providing seating for a further 30-36 people.
If you don't want to sit, no problem - whilst we have not tested the theory I am sure you can fit quite a few more people in standing up.
Are you looking for a venue to run yoga or pilates courses for the horse rider - yep, we can make that work for you too.
We can host your equestrian themed talks/discussions/training in our coffee shop.
Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm @ £15 per hour, 6pm to 10pm @ £20 per hour (£25 per hour in the winter months when we have lighting and heating running). We are not able to accommodate any hire requests beyond 10pm.
The option of purchasing tea/coffee/drinks can be made available on a 'per cup' basis from an 'honesty corner' . Bring your own biscuits/pastries or we can provide those too.
We can staff the coffee shop to provide a full catering service whether that be lunch or dinner upon request or maybe even an Afternoon Tea - however, please appreciate whilst we are prepping and cooking some noise should be expected, we will try our best to keep it to a minimum. You can order off the menu or we can provide you in advance with a set meal deal menu from £7 per head. Please note only Cobham Manor staff are permitted to operate the catering equipment.
