Welcome to The Clock House café & tea room at Upton Hall.

Established in 2013, The Clock House is a popular destination for those looking for a hearty all day breakfast, a wonderful afternoon tea, or a light and tasty sandwich.

Tucked away in the grounds of The British Horological Institute in the village of Upton between Southwell and Newark, we are a peaceful retreat where you can easily while away a couple of hours. We make all of our own cakes, scones and meals and use the finest loose leaf tea and coffee. We also pride ourself on the warm welcome we give every customer and all our staff are chosen for their bubbly personalities and smiles.

The cafe was founded in 2013 by Ed Halls and we have him to thank for all the great recipes that are being used in our cafe. His patisserie background in many Michelin star establishments means we have a strong base to build on.

Here at the Clockhouse we have a small team who pride themselves in creating a welcoming friendly atmosphere with excellent quality of food and drinks.

In the kitchen we have Jodie and Ed.

Jodie is our Assistant Manager and runs the kitchen. She has a great passion and ability for cooking and even more importantly, she is a great person who keeps the rest of the team on their toes and has a smile for everyone.

Ed, as mentioned above has worked in many Michelin star establishments and worked along side Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wearing. Ed works with pride in everything he does and has been here since it opened in 2013.

Out the front we have:

Helen is our cafe manager who has been in the business since it was opened in 2013. Helen has good knowledge about gluten free diets and is the driving force behind our wide range of gluten free products.

Deborah is our regular dose of cheer and loveliness, she is extremely organised and efficient. It is impossible to speak to Deborah and not finish the conversation with a smile on your face!

We open everyday at 10am and close at 4.30pm.
