Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Penzance
The artistic heart of West Cornwall's history

The Orangery Café

The perfect place for morning coffee, a delightful light lunch or afternoon tea with delicious homemade cakes.

All the food is freshly prepared on the premises, so dieters be warned - the smell of baking cakes is horribly tempting!

The Orangery Café

During your visit, relax for a while in our delightful licenced café, with its sun-bathed terrace overlooking the park.

The Orangery is open throughout Penlee House's opening hours (last orders 15 minutes before closing) for morning coffee, afternoon tea with home-baked cakes and pastries, freshly prepared sandwiches, salads and light lunches. A table licence enables customers to enjoy a glass of wine with their meal, or perhaps sample a locally-produced beer, cider or fruit juice.

Lunch is served between 12.00 and 3.00 pm. Daily specials are made on the premises and include fresh, seasonal local ingredients.

Please note the café is both popular and small (seating only 30 indoors), so you are strongly advised to contact the Orangery if you are planning to bring any group of more than six people, even for morning coffee or afternoon tea. 

For further information, the Orangery can be contacted direct on 01736 361325, or by email c/o
