Situated in Sissinghurst, one of the most picturesque corners of Kent, The Milk House is a village pub at the heart of the community. A former 16th century hall house, with timber beams and a Tudor fireplace, the pub welcomes loyal locals, along with visitors from further afield, serving a selection of local beers, cask ales and great wines by the glass, including several from the area’s renowned vineyards. Our bar Grazing Menu is available throughout the day to enjoy in front of a crackling fire during winter or on our sun-soaked terrace in the summer.
In the spirit of summer celebration, we’ve been making plans for a fun-packed weekend at the end of August – a Milk Fest! We’re using our (nearly) First Anniversary as an excuse to celebrate with the community and beyond with four days of food, fun and summer frivolity for all the family.
The weekend-long party will start on Friday 22 August with an evening revelling in all things Italian, and Mediterranean sunsets available on request… In the bar and on the terrace, we’ll be serving pizza and gelato, with a band of mellifluous tenors in tow. Meanwhile in the Dining Room, we’ll be offering an Italian tasting menu with wine to match the food. You can find the menu below – remember to book in advance!
The fun continues on Saturday 23 August with an afternoon packed with family-friendly activities – there’ll be the obligatory bouncy castle and face painting (of course), along with garden games and a Punch and Judy show. There’ll be candy floss, too, and generous scoops of local ice cream to keep energy levels up, though parents might prefer a cold glass of summery rose to keep blood pressure levels down… We’ll finish off the evening with a screening in the bar for the children. The combination of bean bags and popcorn might even mean there are snoozy little ones to take home once grown ups have enjoyed a drink in peace!
On Sunday 24 August, we’re having a Cider Festival where you’ll have the chance to enjoy some of Kent’s best cider in the sunshine. We’ll also be adding pulled pork baps to our Sunday evening menu for one night only to help you soak it up. Do get in touch if you’re a local cider maker and you’d like to be involved – we’d love to hear from you so just drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Then on Monday 25 August, it’s the Sissinghurst Village Fete! We’ll be pouring more pints down there, and at the end of the fete we’ll be keeping the celebrations going back at the pub. So join us for a drink and enjoy a mini festival with local bands and musicians to help you make the most of the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Sissinghurst is the perfect place for a family day out, especially during the warmer months, with the historic castle and gardens just half a mile’s walk from The Milk House. Parking is ample and dogs are welcome.
