Visitors in the granary restaurant

Food feet, not miles

Feeling hungry after a walk around our estate? Enjoy a lunch prepared from our seasonally changing menu.

Our tasty menus are created by our Head Chef Clemmie, who works with our team of Vegetable Gardeners to create dishes inspired by Sissinghurst which highlight the season's best produce. Vegetables and soft fruit growing in the garden you can see across the field from the restaurant window, moves a matter of feet, not miles before it lands on your plate. In the coffee shop, find a selection of cakes, soup and sandwiches for a quick refuel. Find out more about our vegetable plot below.

Sunday roasts

Nothing quite hits the spot like a classic sunday roast, with a changing menu that features either beef, lamb or pork with all the usual accompaniments, we're sure it will be the perfect winter warmer. All dishes are served with a variety of our plot vegetables.

Seasonal highlights from the estate

Our soup of choice at the moment is cauliflower and stilton which really helps to hit the spot after a frosty walk. If you're looking for something a bit more substantial then our one pot dish is currently a  mixed bean chilli which is served with bread and butter. To round of the meal our classic victoria sponge might be just the thing or our coconut flapjack.
