Update Jan 2020

Due to the new lockdown measures, the Cafe will be closed for eat-in and takeaway for the forseeable future. 

We hope to be able to welcome you back as soon as it's safe to do so.


Enjoy our takeaway and eat-in festive afternoon teas. Available Wednesday to Sunday at the Roald Dahl Museum Cafe in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.


SIt down and relax with one of our indulgent afternoon teas. Perfect for all the family - who wouldn't want a cake stand FULL of treats to enjoy?! Dig in to a selection of homemade sandwiches, sweet treats and our famous scones, plus a Twist Tea or Grand Cafe coffee of your choice.

You can eat at the Museum cafe and enjoy your afternoon tea served on vintage crockery, or you can order your afternoon tea to takeaway and enjoy at home.

Based in the picture-postcard village of Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire, our afternoon tea makes a great addition to day of shopping in the village's pretty shops. Or why not add it on to a Museum visit? It's a great way to make your day even more special.

  • Eat-in afternoon teas cost £14.50 per person.
  • Takeaway afternoon tea cost £12.50 per person.

They are both available Wednesday to Sunday during term-time from 1pm to 3pm.
