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, as well as refreshing sorbets. 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 

Our cafés and food outlets continue to prioritise the health and safety of staff, volunteers, suppliers and visitors. We'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and stick to our high standards of cleanliness, we recommend that face coverings are worn in enclosed and crowded areas.

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."
