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.
