Our Restaurant

Our Restaurant, The Wild Goose Café, operates from the same well equipped kitchens that supply meals for the many conferences and events that are hosted annually at Blandford Manor. The Café pursues the Manors tradition of providing good, tasty ‘comfort’ food using only the best ingredients with tried and tested recipes handed down over decades.

Damn Good Food:

With our menu you wont need to speak a foreign language to understand the menu and when you see a dish that you like, you know you will be receiving exactly what you expected, cooked the traditional way with lots of love and attention.

The same dedication and attention is paid to preparing a meal for each and every one of our Café guests as is spent preparing a meal for three hundred guests at a gala dinner or cocktail evening. Our seven permanent highly trained chef’s work as a team to provide a complete range of menus including an a-la-carte menu which is available Tuesday to Sunday and traditional pizzas prepared in our own wood burning oven (available Friday to Sunday and on public holidays).

Most of our guests love to sit in the gardens on warm days, enjoying the peace and quiet, our signature service is tranquility, just the sounds of nature, no loud music or clatter of flea markets. A favourite spot is right next to the river.

You can eat in the garden . . .


. . . or on the deck.

On cold days we have the open hearth fires burning inside so you can still relax and get warm. We have a wonderful selection of soups and hot drinks to choose from to make that dismal day just a little bit nicer.

Our pub, ideal for small groups


The Wild Goose, despite it’s obvious appearance, is still a restaurant and should be treated as any other restaurant. Many of our guests visit The Wild Goose for the peace and Tranquility it offers and for this reason that we do not allow music to be played in the gardens, this in fact is our signature difference to most other garden restaurants.

We ask our patrons to please respect this and to help us maintain the soothing and relaxing mood of the Manor.

No Children under 15 years of age are permitted at Blandford Manor unless the entire venue is booked for a private function or the event is taking place out of hours.

If you have booked for a private function with exclusive use of the venue and children are attending then please note that the venue has a number of potential dangers, particularly over the river, and, for this reason, children may not cross the bridges or visit the far side of the river without adult supervision. Dangers include tall structures, steep rocky cliffs, dangerous snakes and poisonous plants.

We therefore ask that you supervise your children at all times.
