Welcome to the brand-new Meadow Croft Kitchen! After years of planning, we have launched Meadow Croft Kitchen with a fresh new look!

Our new restaurant takes its inspiration from the garden & outdoors; materials are natural; copper and lots of natural light and greenery throughout. Fabrics are soft and welcoming in shades of green. All of our tables and chairs are hand crafted in the UK from ethically sourced wood. 

We have two gorgeous outdoor seating areas for our visitors to experience. The first is an undercover terrace where visitors can sit in the fresh air with some shelter from the elements, surrounded by the wonderful scents of our main plant area; and the second is our outdoor terrace that visitors can take in views of the rolling fields and feel the sun on their faces! 

Meadow Croft Kitchen is fully licensed and serves freshly prepared, delicious, home cooked meals every day of the week. 

We source the best quality ingredients from some amazing local suppliers! We are so pleased to be supporting other family run, local businesses, and hope that their quality produce brings some extra deliciousness to our homecooked food!

Come and enjoy a delicious breakfast cooked using locally sourced produce.

On our main menu we offer a large range of sandwiches, toasted focaccias as well as home cooked MCK favourites and jacket potatoes. 

Tempting homemade cakes and bakes are served throughout the week and make the perfect accompaniment to any hot drink. Please ask our team for our selection on the day. These can also be boxed up to takeaway too. We also have Gluten Free options available.

Meadow Croft Kitchen accepts walk-ins only – reservations can only be made for Afternoon Tea & Breakfast Banquet. More information below.

Tips to a great Poinsettia⁠

❤️Only buy a plant that has not been exposed to draughts as this can cause the leaves to drop suddenly. ⁠

❤️Keep the plant wrapped for the journey home to protect it from the cold. ⁠

❤️Do not overwater or let the plant dry out. Consistent watering is the key to a healthy plant, using tepid water if possible. If the leaves turn yellow or fall off it is incorrectly watered. Only water when the plant is noticeably dry, lift the plant up and if it feels light it needs watering. Watering can be done from the top of the pot or by standing the pot in water for half an hour and then allowing to drain freely.⁠

❤️Poinsettias need warmth and light but must be kept away from draughts including open windows, fireplaces, open doorways etc. ⁠
Temperatures between 15-22 degrees are ideal and preferably placed in a light spot.⁠
