We are almost at the end of the year and what a year it has been. Thank you to everyone who has visited, reviewed us, bought plants and gifts, followed us on social media, donated and supported us. We are still here because of you and we cannot say thank you enough. We will be closed from December 20th and will remain closed until March 2021. Next year we will be open from Wednesday to Sunday 9.30am till 5pm, last entry at 4pm. We will look forward to welcoming you all. So, until next year, stay safe and well. We wish you the best Christmas and may 2021 bring better things for us all.

If you like to enjoy a really good cup of coffee or to relax with a gin cocktail over lunch combine with a fabulous view then come to The Vine House Café. Situated in our Victorian vine houses and with a tranquil outside seating area you can enjoy views of Helmsley Castle as well as Helmsley Walled Garden.

There are indulgent freshly-baked cakes that need to be sampled with your morning coffee or afternoon tea. Alongside the regular lunch dishes, there is a regularly changing selection of special dishes. There are always gluten-free cakes and lunches available as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes. If you have any particular dietary requirements please ask the staff who will be happy to help you.

The Vine House Café is fully licenced so you can enjoy a glass of wine or one of the speciality gin cocktails. Or you might prefer a beer or a glass of prosecco. Ask a staff member for full details of the current beers and lagers available, or peruse the gin cocktail menu to pick your favourite.

On arrival simply make your menu choice, give your order at the counter then pick a seat and relax. Please be aware that at busy periods there can be up to a thirty minute wait as every dish is prepared fresh as ordered. There are plenty of magazines and cook books to read so just sit back and unwind.

Brother and sister team Sam and Mollie Chapman  welcome you to The Vine House Café. Their aim is to make beautiful food for you to enjoy along with their friendly service.
