Kedleston's Great Kitchen Restaurant

Kedleston restaurant

The restaurant is open daily and is an ideal stop off before or after your walks in the parkland or visit inside the hall. You'll also find plenty of outdoor seating on site to enjoy your purchases.

Kedleston's Great Kitchen restaurant 

The restaurant is open 10am – 4.30pm daily and is serving hot and cold meals and drinks, sandwiches and light snacks. 

Entry to the restaurant is at the front of the building, and you can choose an available sanitised table. 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.
