Cheshire Farm Ice Cream Kiosk

At Home Farm, you'll also find our Ice Cream Kiosk where we're serving award-winning Cheshire Farm ice creams in a range of delicious flavours, with new flavours and sorbets coming later this spring. The kiosk is just a few metres from the play area so it's the perfect place to stop for a pre- or post-playtime treat.

Staying safe 

In line with the further easing of restrictions, outdoor seating is now available at some of our cafés and food outlets in England. Where outdoor seating is available, we are legally required to participate in the NHS Test & Trace programme by asking those visitors over 16 who ‘eat in’ at our outlets to check in with the NHS COVID-19 app, scan their membership card or leave brief contact details. Details are not required for visitors who purchase items for take-away.

Our cafés and food outlets continue to prioritise the health and safety of staff, volunteers, suppliers and visitors. We continue to maintain social distancing measures, screens at our till and collection points, waymarked routes and will have hand sanitiser available, to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit as safely as possible. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces, unless exempt. Please bring one with you. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Getting greener

As part of our commitment to becoming more sustainable at Speke Hall, we’re moving towards replacing plastic bottled drinks with recyclable glass options. We’re also using paper straws and all our disposable Vegware drinks cups and lids are completely biodegradable - you can even compost them! Out in the gardens and grounds, we use peat-free compost and produce lots of our own fruit and vegetables in the Kitchen Garden, which is then used in dishes in the restaurant. That's about 100 yards from plot to plate.

" We have been visiting Speke Hall as a family for the past seven years, at least once a week. It is a place for us to relax and we find it very stimulating for our daughter who is severely disabled. We really look forward to caching up with the team on our visits, they consistently go above and beyond for my family, often reserving a table during busy periods to accommodate Alicia’s wheelchair, enabling us to enjoy a stress-free day out. It means the world to us: there are not as many places as you might think that can offer this level of service, understanding and warm welcome."
