The Hungry Monk Café is open 10:00 – 17:00 during our farm opening days with last orders taken at 16:00

The Hungry Monk Café offers a selection of delicious hot and cold meals from light lunches to meals, including a children’s menu. A range of hot and cold drinks including barista-style coffee is also available.

We can cater for all dietary requirements and group bookings by pre-arrangement – please email the Hungry Monk team at

We also have a yummy selection of ice creams and lollies in our gift shop next door to the café, where you’ll be able to browse our gifts for all ages, pocket money toys and bespoke items made specially for Monk Park Farm by the wonderful people at Jennyruth Workshops in Ripon.

Our new indoor picnic area in the marquee overlooking the deer and llama field is the perfect setting for those wishing to enjoy their own lunch in a relaxed indoor environment. But please don’t share your picnic with the animals – it can make them poorly. (Bags of special animal feed are available to purchase from the Ice Cream Shop and Ticket Office at the entrance.)

Don’t forget to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before eating.
