Restaurant with tables and chairs

Kedleston's Great Kitchen restaurant 

The restaurant is open 10am – 4pm daily serving a range of hot and cold meals and snacks, as well as cream teas and drinks. Please be aware it is a lmited menu at this time. 

To ensure social distancing, the layout of the restaurant and way you access the restaurant will be different to what you may be used to. Entry to the restaurant is at the front of the building, where you will be greeted and shown to an available sanitised table. Inside there is a one way system and exit is by the rear doors only. We also offer outdoor seating on the front lawn giving spectacular views of the park. 

The restaurant is situated in what was once Kedleston's Great Kitchen, where great banquets were prepared and a team of kitchen staff would have cooked for the Curzon family and their guests. It has changed very little over the years and you can still clearly see many of the original kitchen features. The Servants' Hall beside the kitchen offers additional tables and seating and is where, originally, the staff would have eaten their meal, after waiting on the Curzon family.

Time for breakfast

We’re open from 10am everyday so you can pop in for breakfast before your walk in the fresh parkland air. Why not start the day with a bacon bap or croissant. There are plenty of teas and coffee to choose from too.
